Nothing wrong with a 7mm on a Springfield action, but I don't think trying to scab on a Mauser barrel is the way to go. Start over with the right shank.

If I had a fondness for 6.5 and 7mm and the '03, I would be thinking hard about a .256 Newton or a .285 OKH. No real difference in ballistics from a 6.5x55 or 6.5-06 and a .280 Rem, but just going for the nostalgia.
