Re: 375 cal. 350 gr SMK

if these bullets are the original thinner jacket versions , will my 375 tejas 1-10" twist at 3000 fps over spin them?

For me, I'm thinking with a 3000 mv and if they have thinner jackets they may well work better than if started around 3350.

Get some and post the results.

I've got some coming. When the rifle gets finished I'll post results also.

If that 375 has a 1: 10" twist, I am running some banded-solids this week which you may be interested in.

They are Match bullets, but oddly, you are not the first to look at this caliber as a LRH round, and I am considering producing a hunt variant.

338 Bruce,

I would not think you would ever have a problem. I shot the prototype bullets in my 375 AM and I only had a couple problems, most shot very well, exrtemely well and that was at 3300 fps.

At the velocity you will be driving them to which will be several hundred fps less then this, I would never think you will ever have a problem of any kind.

I can not say these bullets will be accurate, no idea why they are so cheap but if they are well made with no concentricity problems, they should shoot pretty well I would think.

I believe the reason for the two different prices was that the lower was from a dealers sheet.
