Single shot pistol for Illinois

Can anyone help my with this. Wanting to build a pistol to take to ILl. for whitetail. It must be at least 30cal with a case length not to exceed 1.4". It must also be as a factory load with published ballistic data. This means not 7.62x39 or 30AR. I have found the 300 whisper but not that impressed with 125gr ballistics out of pistol. There is a 30Bellm but I can not find anywhere that manufactures it. Any help is welcome.

Wouldn't that be a bottleneck cartridge and therefore bound by the 1.4" case length rule?

I ws thinking of building this off a Bat Sv I have sitting hear from a another project. It looks like I will go with a 30Bellm, but can't find anywhere that sells this ammo? I ws thinking of the 460 but hate to try and open the bolt up to fit it.

Your bolt face is .473? I don't know what the SV action comes with.

If yes, 450 Bushmaster.
