The cutting edge 400gr is only 2.210 long and its a solid so for a lead core to be 2.300" might be pushing things a bit ?

The 2.300" length is the maximum that would be stable in most 1 : 10 twist barrels. So if it was shorter then it would have a higher stability factor. Or you could maintain the length and have a heavier bullet. 425 grain??

When you go over 6 calibers in length strange things start to happen and you will need use twist rates not commonly found on 375 rifles.

Are you talking about Ogive radius or projectile OAL?

Did I miss the part where it was said whether they were solids or jacketed? Good grief I hope we aren't talking about solid turned bullets again. Probably 500 modern shops that could make them for programming fees material and shop time. I even considered it but found solids to be unsatisfactory due to density issues. The only ones using them are people that really don't have any other choice. Not saying they make a bad bullet but they are inferior to what we could have in a jacketed!

It sound like you have a fear idea what bullet weights and twist rate neaded so do tell all.
