What coal with pictured round? 3.7?? We probably only have 150 rounds out of it and we've had it for 4-5 years, we need to put a break on it, its not fun to shoot at all, two full tilt 180 grain loads and i am done, yet i can shoot 15+ full tilt 280 grain loads from a 338 Lapua so i dont think im that sensitive to recoil. How is performance compared to a 300 RUM? same bolt face?
Ya, with my bullets seated into the lands, it is 3.727". The 215 Bergers are about 3.705" to lands......Rich
Barnesuser, I would recommend a brake but in the mean time, I have a a decelerator slip on recoil pad that I use with my un-braked Sendero 300 RUM. I have shot as many as 50 rounds on the bench in a couple of hours and could have easily shot more.
I use it on all my un-braked heavy kickers from 7 RM on up.
You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.

I have both the straight -06 and the improved. And the Sherman or similar would be very nice.
But someone replied to an old thread that they had a 6.55x55 AI and had done real pressure tests and had posted very impressive velocity.
My long term bolt plans would be to do the 30/375 SI and try the 6.5X55AI in the future.
