Too much of an overbore in my opinion.

The barrel is easy. Bartlein or Krieger. Then wait 5 months to a year. Give your chosen smith a heads up so he can order the reamer. You can spend that time waiting looking for dies.

Have you had a look at the 26 Nosler? I think it may do about what you want.

The 26 nosler looks good to go but i have a 300 wby mark v with a shot out barrel and a decent amount of once fired same lot wby brass. Ive been having shoulder problems and i figure with a heavier contour barrel, thumbhole stock, brake, and the lighter 6.5 bullets i can lose a good amount of that recoil. I guess i just want something different, im all about putting a v8 in a go cart.
