    Yes 303 or 30 WCF will work as well as 300 Savage or 308 if you want to get into 30 cal (saves a little weight) My next barrel for my swap barrel will be 35 caliber - probably 358 WCF but maybe GoodSteel's 35 XCB wildcat. Uses a post-64 push...

    If they can keep tolerances - it's one thing to get a bullet thru 2" with loose tolerances vs 10" with tight tolerances.
