LOL right on.

I am thinking Artemis is good one too. Sounds like a dude, Arty, but she is a huntress. Might use this one for my little girly LR rig.

Really looking forward to seeing your results.

Your one has basically the same barrel tennon & action size as mine did, your barrel is longer, mine was 32".

Have you shot her yet ?

The 375 Viersco Magnum was developed for the super long range" Hard Target Interdiction" rifles.

33.5" barrel test

375gn Cutting Edge bullet
H-BMG 50 powder
3300 fps
9100 Foot pounds at the muzzle

3000 yds super sonic

350gn Predator solid
3450 fps

Custom action from Dave Viers, 34" Lilja barrel 1"9 twist to facilitate up to 450 gr 375 bullets. Manners stock. etc.

The cartridge compared to 338 RUM and 280 AI---180 gr capacity

Theoretically it will launch 260 accubonds at 4000 fps but it will not stabilize them.

Here is the webpage.....Yes that is my rifle on it!!!

375 Viersco Magnum

375 VM Test Results

VERY nice looking rifle! A few questions/clarification, please:

1. The ballistic data you note at the beginning of the post are from the bottom of this Viersco page - 375 VM Test Results Those tests were done in Feb 2012, about the time you placed your order (16 month build). I understood that those tests were done with the XLR-chassis-based rifle (also pictured on the Viersco page), at that time with a 33.5" barrel. Dave subsequently went forward, per the info on that page, to a 42" barrel and then started dropping back (chopping the barrel off) and testing for results. Your pic notes a 34" Lilja barrel and the pic of your rifle on the Viersco page notes,"Custom Viersco Single Shot Action, Manners carbon fiber stock, Lilja 9 twist 36" barrel with 4 port shark bite muzzle brake, Stainless on black stock finish, "spider webbing"." Long way to get around to it, do you have any ballistics from your finished 34" barreled rifle? If not, what's the latest plan?

2. The brass you show is properly stamped. Of whose manufacture?

3. You note a one-of-a-kind design (for the cartridge). I was under the impression that Dave has built, and is building, others, specifically V2, long necks. Was (is) yours the only short neck? What caused you to go "short neck"?

4. The action is noted as "custom action". Dave's site notes "Barker Machine Works will be offering a modified action just for the VM cartriges." Is yours an "enhanced" Barker Overwatch or an action John is now offering of his own design and manufacturer?

Thank you, great shooting, and God Bless!
