Now who would have thought the voice of reason would have come from the guy who shoots a big huge case in a little short barreled pistol but, winner winner chicken dinner, Yorke is the winner for giving the most reasonable and cost effective answer so far.  :tup:

I actually feel rather silly because I completely overlooked that.  That's some good thinkin lincoln!!!

I'm full of good advise, I just don't follow it.  :chuckle: I'm also notoriously cheap and I'll come up with any way I can to avoid buying new components.

Errrrch!!!  Hold on a minute, cheap and blowing 150gr of powder out a pistol length barrel does not seem to compute to me. lol

Frugal I'll buy but cheap, not so much.  :chuckle:

It's the bullets that make me cringe more than the powder. When 300gr OTMs are the cheap plinking bullet and the target bullets are about $1.75 each, the .60 cents for the powder seems cheap. Don't forget to factor in about .50 cents worth of barrel life every shot too! :o

It makes me appreciate little rounds like the Creedmoor a bit more.

I didn't realize the necked down 408's were so hard on barrels until I talked to a friend of mine that had one of Kirby's 338 Allen Mags, yeah, he had to re-barrel it after 600 rounds.  :yike:

For what you're looking to achieve you might consider doing a 6.5 SAUM. The bolt face would need to be opened up but it's a 6.5 wildcat meant for a short action magazine fed rifle.

I like the idea of a 6.5 WSM or SAUM in a SA but I'm not very familiar with the extractor setup on a Kimber so it may not even be a possibility.

I went with the 6.5 wsm out of a 7mm mag sako I used for the donor.   I did read that people like the 6.5 saum a little more for some reason.  But 270 wsm Norma brass is pretty easy to find.  A Redding bushing die and one pass through and your done.
