Hello, im a newbie poster,long time reader. I've tried the search but very little luck getting it to work so Im sorry if i've asked a question or two thats been discussed a million times.
I've got a rem 700xcr in .375rum and with the stock 24" pipe. I'd like to extend the range and power of this rifle and mostly will be target shooting and maybe a little hunting. More shooting than hunting anyways.
Im looking for recommendations on a good brand barrel and twist for heavier bullets like the 350gr smk.(due to its higher BC level)
I assume the longer 350gr bullet won't cycle in my bolt gun but be more of a single shot since the overall length of the cartridge will be too big to fit in magazine???
What muzzle brake would do the best for taming the harsh recoil?
Does anyone use a .375rum for any real long range big game or target shootin? I see alot of guys have custom actions which is awsome but out of my leauge :( I wish....some day...
The power weight is much less than the larger .375's you guys are used to running by 50grs or so. I do realize that which sucks for me.
I do reload so if anyone has any suggestions or recommendations i'd love to hear em' with open ears. Im just trying to learn and love the forum so far. Thanks!
