    Only thing I don’t care for with the 300wm is headspacing off the belt.

    True. I don’t always use gauges with personal stuff. Hard to find Gunsmiths that won’t use go/no go gauges with the liability now days.

    With a 26" barrel you can get 2950-3000fps with a 165gr bullet out of a 30-06 and that's not too shabby for a common round.I have a 300WSM and a couple of 300Win Mags and unless I'm planning on shooting way far away,I'm well pleased shooting the 30-06.
