For 350 smks call Jamison. I have one 375/408 with 12 twist with a shorter barrel and the other with a 34.5 " barrel and 10 twist. Both are great and shoot the smks very accurately. Looking forward to seeing how the longer bullets perform.

With you knowledge of the big WBY 378s and now the 350 smks I would appreciate some advice for a friend. He has a 300 wby he s used for elk and now is planning to take large plains game in Africa and moose and caribou in Alaska. I thought that the WBY H+H would be reasonable but he also will be taking probably 400 - 500 yds shots and so it would seem the 378 with 260 Accubonds (from Midway) wound be a good choice - that s about 3100 fps. Probably with a accubrake would be good. Did you end up adding a brake and if so what type? I presume the 350 smks did fine in your 378? I ve seen people getting 1" 100 yds grouping with the ABs in the 378 - he wont be loading. I figured if its not that accurate, he could upgrade it - my 30-378 would never shoot accurately so Dan Lilja recommended a 30" barrel for it and Dave Viers added a Manners stock he custom cut, added a custom trigger, bedded it and now it regurlarly groups 6-9" regularly at 600 yds. It s a great carry gun although my 375 /408 CTs certainly are great for reaching out to beyond 1000 yds. Appreciate your comments about the 378. I also take to heart your comment about the ammo might be more difficult to get hold of if ones checked luggage is checked - clearly 375 H+H is easier to get hold of in Africa.

Re: Anyone shooting the .375 350 gr SMK?

I have been shooting the 350 gr SMK's in my 375 H&H. W/ max load of H4350/IMR 4350. Getting 2450 fps from a Brux barrel 1-10 twist. Target shooting out to 1K yards, I'm getting around 9/16" MOA. I also tried the factory 1-12 twist barrel and it wouldn't stabilize the bullet. In case you were looking to get a new barrel, I just ordered a second from Brux and the wait was only 8 weeks. Everyone else was 8-12 months.
