I am new to the whole wildcatting thing and am spending hours reading through old posts on this site. I wish to thank all the members for the time they put into this site and their pursuit of long range nirvana. Hopefully this question is not too ignorant. Is there a reason that one would avoid straightening the body taper on the 30-06? Say for instance when going to the 280AI, I would guess that you would gain some additional powder capacity by also straightening out the case wall. Is it due to case extraction? Ad if that is the case, would a sako style extractor be able to manage the process? Edit, I guess it also depends on if the case already has more than enough capacity.....I am as stated before, just getting started so my questions may be totally ignorant. I am not knowledgeable as to case capacity of the 280AI, but looking at how they beefed up the 284shehane started me thinking in this direction. Just trying to get the most out of my 30-06 action.
