I live in SE Australia, & I have a Weatherby Mk V in .308W caliber. I have a hankering to rebarrel it to a caliber which can make full use of the action length (30-06 length with a spacer in the magazine) It just seems a pity to have a medium-length action & not utilise it. So I wonder if it should become a 338-06 A-Square, for shooting Sambar deer, or maybe a 6.5-284 or 25-06 for Fallow deer, feral pigs & other medium game. Does anyone out there have a 338-06 & love it? A 25-06 is nice for Fallow deer, but a 6.5-284 looks good too. What would you do? I am a reloader, so any less common caliber (like 6.5-06 or 6.5x57 for example) is acceptable. I could rebarrel it to 30-06 & get a bit more power. (I can't just rechamber it, since it has a slim sporter barrel, & might not have enough steel around the extended chamber of 30-06) I look forward to hearing our suggestions!
