Default Creating a new 303 wildcat

For a little while I've been contemplating the fact that the action I often want to use for a particular cartridge isn't suitable.
Or, more often, the action I like doesn't have a suitable cartridge in the cal/performance combination I want.
As such a friend and I have begun to get silly ideas.
All I'll say is that it'll be a 303 Improved case necked up to a big bore cal.
What I want to know is how do I get the necessary reamer and dies for such a cartridge?
The brass would be fairly easy to form.....just neck it up and then fireform it.
But actually chambering the rifle is the catch.
Who makes the reamers?
What details would I have to send them in order to get the needed item?
Cheers & God Bless
