    A limited variation on the age old calibre debate

    I want to build myself a nice stalking rifle - and I have a magnum long action donor action on which to build - something quite esoteric would be preferable, just because I can. Reloading for it is not a problem, so what would you build and why?

    It would replace a 270 - and sit between a 22.250 and 300WM. So - recommendations please......

    When you say magnum long action do you mean it's a 30-06 length action with a magnum bolt face or is it a true magnum action (375 h&h length)?

    Thanks for the clarification prompt - 30-06 length with a magnum boldface. (It's currently a 300WM)
