Re: 375 barrel twist

I have a Brux 1-10" on my 375 BME. Running 350gr MK at 2950 the faster twist wasn't necessary, just wanted it. It was a special order.

Check out Benchmark as well. I have 3 or their barrels and they're all top notch. I would take that leade time with a grain of salt though. Mine took considerably longer.

Re: 375 barrel twist

I contacted Benchmark and Broughton by email and both responded within a few hours, which was way cool !!

My email to both.....

"I have heard a lot of good things about your barrels on the shooting forums,
I'm currently in need of a high quality barrel for a wildcat .375 based on the .338 Norma Mag case...
what I need is a 29" blank 10 twist 5c .375 in Rem Varmint contour with straight flutes to finish at 28" with the extra inch left on to machine a muzzle brake into..
is this something you can help me with?"


here are the responses !

"You are in luck. I ordered a 10 twist button last week. We should be able to have you a barrel in 4-5 months."

Re: 375 barrel twist

Swamplord,

You mentioned Satern barrels earlier, and they are first rate. I have or have used at least 20 or more, and they've all been top notch. No hesitation at all in recommending them, and they can do whatever you'd like in the way of twists.

Re: 375 barrel twist

Chris from Benchmark called me on Friday Dec. 14th at 2 pm Alaska time and freaked me out !
He tells me he has a barrel ready for me made to my specs !
I was floored but quickly got out my cc and paid the man !

Can't beat the service and wait time !! 2 days! lol !
