Something larger than .30-30 would be better

just a smidge. The ancient .401 Winchester is right there and while 0.406" bullets are spec. I usually just load cast .410". I think the case length is about right. A case is needed that would allow some taper for reamer production and extraction.

I use blown out straight 7.62x39 brass for making .401 Win. Starline .414 SM brass can me modded to perfectly replicate .401 Win.

If you HAD to have a .400" bullet these cases would work just as well a few thousandths necked. I think the spec is 1.6" so that is plenty within the requirements.
