Re: cz 550 magnum for .375 Cheytac?

Hi Benchracer,
thanks for the research!
But: I have measured the inside dimensions of the magazine box of the action. It measures 3.82 inches, and the case length is 3.04 inches. So, with a hunting style bullet and not one of the overly long VLDs, it would work not only as a single loader... I will post here what I`ve found out after talking to my gunsmith. Thanks again for your efforts!

Glad I could help! Given your intended use and bullet choice, it sounds like your idea would be doable. Now I'm really curious.

Given the velocity potential of the Cheytac, I would plan to stay with mono metal bullets of some kind. Bonded bullets at the very least. Either way, I am thinking that it would pay to go with a faster than standard twist.

What do you have in mind for recoil control? Muzzle brake? Heavy barrel?

Ähhhh... recoil... yes... It will be an issue. Muzzlebrake for sure, and concerning that the whole project is about the rig still being portable, i`m not sure how much weight to add and where... A mercury reducer might be an option, but recoil will be the biggest Problem for sure.
