    Short action or long? What’s OAL? Would love to do one of these in a medium length action (I have a defiance). How fast do you think it would push the 150 Sierra or the 156 Berger if they ever make it?

    I too am very interested in this cartridge. I have a Sako finnlight 300wsm I would like to use if possible. DementedFox, do you have number I could reach you at? I would love to use a gunsmith that has so much experience with this cartridge if possible

    Wouldnt rechamber a factory tikka barrel again is what i meant by that. I would go with a new blank barrel so the chamber is reamed square to the bore and perfect.

    Caleb - thanks for following up on my question. BTW, how's the load development going? Did you happen to try any 120gn bullets? As someone who loves the .264WinMag, I am very intrigued by the .264WSM.

    I ended up tearing the barrel off and am thinking either another 6.5 wsm on a new barrel or possibly play with a long throated 7wsm. Havent decided yet. I may got 6.5 wsm again.
