I am in the process of buying/rebarreling a rife for converting to a wildcat. The problem is I don't know if the typical .243 boltface will fit the .257 AI cartridge. What is the difference and if so, is the problem easy (read: reasonable) to fix? If it's a real problem the chambering will be the .260AI. Any help would be appreciated.

Boltface will be same for either.

Seems like they would both provide similar performance - can't see a lot of difference in the game that would be hunted with one vs. the other. Slightly heaver bullets available in 6.5mm.
