My r700 5r sits in a chassis right now and I enjoy the pistol grip
So keep the same chassis, trigger, action and scope and just fit a new barrel.
It will feel the same but you will be shooting 6.5 instead of 308.
If you don't fool with the action/bolt, you can switch barrels back and forth easily as each will be headspaced to your action.
