    Depending on the weight of the rifle, it should be pretty similiar.

    has anyone thrown around the idea of necking down a 7mm RUM to .264 i think it would be able to push 140 grainers around 3400 fps.

    If you are thinking this route, why don't you go with a 6.5 STW

    6br is the king of long range/low recoil.
    It's smaller than you requested.
    But, it's an incredible cartridge.
    Savage chambers some very nice rifles in 6br.
    Have a look at 6mmbr.com

    I don't know what you long range but my 25-06 has worked well for me to 600 yards. Very low recoil and outstanding accuracy from my cooper rifle. With berger bullets I've taken elk at 470 yards.
