Thanks

I have 2 loads for the 30-375R.

77.7 gr H-1000, Fed 215M, 240 SMK at 2925 fps which I don't use much anymore. This is at mag length in AI mags to be used as a repeater and was my original load.

79.5 gr Retumbo, same primers, Berger 230 hybrid at 2960 fps, 3.770 OACL. I'm having to single load it to get close to the lands since the rifle is throated for the 240SMK.

Re: New 30/375 wildcat

Those are excellent numbers for the powder charges. Can't wait to see this thing get kicked off. I'm really interested now. That is about where I would like to be with a heavy 30 bullet. Great stuff!

Re: New 30/375 wildcat

I just ran some numbers for my hunting conditions here in PA. It would be a legitimate 1400yd deer rifle. That is farther than I could probably get here in PA. It would be about the limit due to the woods depending on where I was set up.

Thanks for the affirmation Rich.

Yes it is a 30" 9 twist barrel. I have approx 1500 rounds through this barrel now.

I'm exited for you that your 30-375R project is nearing completion!!! I'm sure you will be very happy with that rifle/cartridge combo.

Here is a link address to a map/pic of the ELR match and distances. Most of the far plates are 96"x48" with a good mix of smaller ones at closer distances, (less than a mile).

After this last weekend I've decided to stay with 30-375R. The cartridge just flat out works well. Less powder and recoil than the 338's too.
