Good call - that eliminated the confusion of what it actually is!

Re: 9.53 Saturn, 375-416 Rigby Imp anyone shooting them?

we have modified a new Lazzeroni model 2012 reciever to accept special bottom metal and a 3-round removable mag box, with an internal mag box length of just over 3.9" ,,, which is long enough to allow the ogive of the 375 dia, 350gr Sierra bullet to be seated far out against the barrel lands and still fit in the magazine box ,,,,,,

I should be shooting the new rifle in the raw very soon ,,,,,, I will post photos here when I do ,,,,,

new ballistics data to 1,000 yards for the new Lazzeroni 9.53 (.375) Saturn round here http://www.lazzeroni.com/ct_lacart.htm ,,,,,

Have you looked at the 338 Excaliber for a larger case.

Re: 9.53 Saturn, 375-416 Rigby Imp anyone shooting them?

I know this thread is a bit old. Durak, did you actually build your rifle. If so, do you mind sharing the results: Bullet choice, velocity, and accuracy?

I am considering a similar build. I was hoping to get at least 2800 fps out of a 350 SMK. I did not want to reinvent the wheel if someone else has already had some success.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Thanks John. I am building a Saturn as we speak. Nice groups by the way. I am using a Stiller TAC 338 with a 29" barrel. Once I get it together we can compare notes.

reloader 22 might even achieve another 40fps or so at the same pressure, but the NP3 coating is really the secret sauce that allows the faster powders to be used, with better shot to shot consistency in both pressure and velocity ,,,,
