260 Remington in long action R700

So I have three Remage R700 rifle one in 270 win with a 1-8 twist barrel. One 284 win 1-8 twist and one 338 win Mag. So I am buying a Black Hole Weaponry 26 barrel that I can switch out with one of the Standard .473 long actions. I know I could do 6.5 x 55 Swede or a 6.5-06 . I get it. I just have a two LR308s in 260 Rem and they shout great. I just wanted to pull 260 Rem over to a bolt gun, as I have all the match dies and components already for 260 Rem. The object is to load the bolt gun rounds as long as I can to get the best performance out of the cartridge. My calculations say I should be able to load Hornady 147 gr RLD M bullets to a COAL of 3.05 +/-. So beyond SAMMI by a ways. Any hoot I have enquired Columbia River Arms about what the free-bore is on the readers they are using and to see if they will match them to dummy rounds if I send them. No answer yet. But if they will not what are my options to extend the free bore to match the intent of my rifle? Also while I have read that feeding may not be a problem, what modifications if any do you think will be required to magazine. Magpul bottom metal with their 10 round magazines.
