Not for some time unfortunately, waiting on bushes & a new reamer to resolve some die issues.

Re: Cutting Edge 425/13-6.5 Gain twist

I really like cutting edege bullets too. I have a 378 Weatherby ackely improved. Im pushing a 330 grain max at 3000 fps. the accuracy is unbeliveable to the point that puting one bullet through the same bullet hole at 100 yards is boreingly easy. Im presently living in Ill. so I havent had many chances to shoot at over 500 yards and the only chance I had to do that so far(500 yd.) the wind was gusting 10 to20 mph switching from 10 oclock to 4, and 2 oclock to 8 oclock I finaly gave up and held center ignoring the conditions and still was right at a minute. Id like to get to the range with flat conditions just to see how tite it really shoots out there Im thinking postage stamps but I havent had a chance to prove it yet. And thats with a 1 in 12 twist. Im moving back to the Pacific north west soon so I will find out and get back with you.
Another thing I like about cutting edege bullets is Dan the owner will work with you he; helped me come up with a starting load , and I belive if you want a custom bullet he will help you with that too ; he is good people. Before cutting edege bullets a 300 grain sierra was the best bullet I had acces to and there is no comparison.

When you say .5 x .75 are you talking about inches or moa?

What other .375 projectiles have you tried with that barrel? I'm getting ready to order another one.
