You need to get behind the 375 AM and powder some basketball sized rocks with it to appreciate what it has to offer, it'll give you warm fuzzy feeling

Im sure it does!! But i think if it makes Roy have to have 2 kidney surgeries its a little much recoil for me.

Roy's just lived in the fast lane to long and is paying for it, the recoil of that 375 AM is far less than your 338 Lapua Savage I will guarantee you, it's a dream to shoot!! I shot it at the same time we were shooting a 338 RUM and it had less recoil, the brake is the size of a mans hand and it works very well!!!! The only thing you'll feel is giggles

I can see one of these in my distant future!! How is barrel life on that monster? Roy, how much does your rifle weigh?

Re: Most Wicked Long Range Wildcat Debate!

For anyone with a .375 AM; have you tested out the 400gr and 425gr CE boolits? Whats your barrel length and whats the average velocity youre getting with these two? Ive tried finding this info everywhere and its not real clear. Cutting Edge website makes it seem as if itll do 2700fps and thats about it. Ive heard of others pushing the 425 to 3000fps with a Cheytac-Imp case. Anyway, just wondering what the REAL world velocity is looking like with these..

Thanks

Re: Most Wicked Long Range Wildcat Debate!

Riley,

She weights just a wee bit over the Idaho 16 pound limit.

bigngreen was able to observe each of his shots from for the whole time of flight to 1k. Not the vapor/atmos disturbance but the base of the buillet. His comment was something like, "She sure breaks nice".

I'm gonna have to learn his secret as I have only been able to spot each shot.

The kidney problem has nothing to do w/shooting. Something called renal cell carcinoma caused some fella to root out a hunk of the kidney. It takes a lot longer than one would think for the sucker to reattach itself.

Went looking, unsuccessfully, for a 1 mile shooting spot. I'll find one, that's for sure!!

The 350 SMK is goes sub sonic @ 2700 yds @ my home elevationand 30* and beyond 3000 yds @ hunting elevations.

Re: Most Wicked Long Range Wildcat Debate!

Mr Roy, I assume you dont have a fast enough twist to shoot above 350gr? Have you tried the CE 350s? Id like to see some results on game..
