Hotrod 375s

Anyone here running a 375 Rum (or larger) with the 350SMK or similar?
Experiences, loads and velocities, accuracy reports?

I am currently running the 375Rum, but I am looking hard at the 375 505/408

Thanks in advance!

    Is your rum a custom or factory. I have been throwing the idea around to build a 375-338 lapua imp

    Custom, min spec reamer, 10 twist.
    Shooting it for the first time this weekend.

    I have been looking at the 375/338LIMP (378 capacity), but I am not sure what velocities it comes with (probably 378ish). I also do not think the case is big enough to burn Retumbo properly....Perhaps not even H1000...IDK.

    Is that the 338/375 LIMP?
    If that is a modest and accurate load a guy has to ask himself how much more he needs?

    I know a fellow with a 375 Viersco with a 36 inch barrel...I believe it was rolling 350SMKs at somewhere around 3450fps. Though hardly modest the owner (a straight shooter) claimed the gun was holding around 3/4-1 minute at over 2000 yards.

    He said it pushes the 260 Accubond to around 3800fps...which would flat let the starch out of a pronghorn
