I too will smile if a .9 375 bullet becomes available that is affordable and available---- until someone produces one with a 1.5 BC. That bullet may be here, how it performs remains to be seen. Let me say up front that I have no dog in this hunt except that I want the best of what is available to allow me to make first round hits way over yonder. Run the numbers on the differences between a BC of .8 and 1.5 at different distances and velocities. I predict high BC bullets expelled out of fast gain twisted barrels will take long range shooting by storm in the next couple of years. There will be hiccups all along the line but they will be overcome and as better materials and manufacturing processes are developed we as shooters will benefit. I think in the next year or so you will see a 14 to 15 lb rifle that will send a 400+ gr bullet 3400+ with 1.5 BC and a 10000 round barrel life. We will think that is the do all end all rifle until someone perfects technology that is capable of sending a projectile at twice that speed with a barrel life of 20000. Its coming. The rifles we are shooting now will be obsolete and our grand kids will set around an artificial log fire and joke about our rifles that we now believe have evolved to the ultimate.

We will seee...............I won't be holding my breath for 1.5 bc, 3400 fps and 10,000 round barrel life. I could be wrong though, I was once last year.

I think you will see one tested that is designed to do that within a year. Who knows, it may be a pink elephant, but it will be fun playing with it.

what do you think the 375 rum could do with the sierra bullet in a 28 to 30 inch barrel think it could get 2800 out of it

If the .375 bullets live up to expectations, I'll have a new reason to wear the barrel out on my 338AM! Maybe a 34" barreled .375 AM would be a nice little upgrade to an already AWESOME rifle!

Kirby,

Thanks for the great gun spec's. I like the sound of that 20# version. I'll have to keep an eye on this project. I afraid my Swaro rangefinder, however might be a little intimidated by that gun.
