Who chambers a rifle in 6.5x47L?

Which manufacturers chamber a rifle in this caliber?

Thanks.

Savage Model 12LRP but I suspect you could get a barrel chambered for it regardless of the gun maker.

Or just get a Savage action (or cannibalize one from a used rifle) and put anyone's Savage pre-fit on it.

But if you're looking for a factory rifle, you probably already know there are a few other chamberings in the 6.5 (.260, 6.5 x 55...) close enough ballistically that you'd never know the difference that might open up some other options.

Thanks guys. I guess I'll start looking at amassing the parts to construct a one off or custom type rifle in this caliber.
