Don't believe everything you read on the web!!
Yes, A 283 is like a bored 265, a 302 is like a bored 283, and a 327 is like a bored 265 or 283 and on to the 350 But if you read that on the web you would think a 350 is a bored 265 block casting!
The easy way to build a "301" is to use an early 327 and a 283 crank. We did that in the 60s but that's not the 302 of legend.
DZ302 and YZ302
When you see fully machined blocks from machinist on the web passing off there 3932386 casting converted 327's & 350s As Genuine Z28 DZ YZ 302's,LT1's,High Perf. 300 350 370 375HP 350's ask them what the #'s on Main caps are. If there Not the Nodular Forged (Denoted by the Capped letters "NF") "2482"s then they are FAKE!
