2p worth
I use 123amax as it is now my range rifle but It like the 120 much better and I was using 120 bt nos rolled fallow with ease but would have to have looked hard at bullet choice , if I was to have gone after anything bigger never did so had no worries .

By lighter are you talking about 90-100grn???? gr1ffer on here played about with several bullets in his 6.5x47 but not sure how light he went to....

My 260rem shoots the 95gr vmax into cloverleafs. It's throated to suit 140gr bergers.

That's comforting, just the sort of thing I was hoping to hear. Wondered if a chamber was cut to suit the ubiquitous Amax 120/123gr bullets if it would still work with a bigger jump.
