If you are set up to reload and don't mind working with wildcat or proprietary cartridges, you might look into the .30 Gibbs. It's basically a .30-06 case that blown out and lengthened a bit........a little more improved than an Ackley Improved and with a slightly shorter neck.

The beauty is that like the Ackley, the Gibbs can be fire formed from .30-06 just by seating the bullet a little long or you can purchase .30 Gibbs headstamped and formed brass by Quality Cartridge from Buffalo Arms and not waste the powder and lead for fire formng.
