Default 6.5-348 Winchester

Does any body know if anyone has necked the 348 Winchester to .264"? Im thinking this could make a nice longrange coyote/deer cartridge for a highwall or No1

P.O. Ackley did it many years ago, and he went further by turning down the rim and cutting a groove in it, effectibly making it the first 6.5WSM - without the heavier case, mind you!
it's described in his first book on wildcats.
