SCOVILL

Has anyone ever used these calibers? I am looking into either the 338 Scovill or the 375 Scovill. I am thinking that it might be kind of a neat one off gun. Anyone know where the dies are available? Or if anyone has the reamers?
Any gunsmiths that would be up to barreling it?

Re: SCOVILL

Well here you go, since no one has responded, the skinny on the Scovill. 338 Scovill = 338-06 AI (Ackley improved)Its just a 30-06 necked up to 338 and improved. Midway has the dies listed under "Obscure Calibers" The reamer can be rented for the 338-06 imp 40 deg.

Have fun,

Dave

Re: SCOVILL

if i remember these were developed in conjunction with fred zeglin, and based on the 9.3x62 rather than the 30-06. you might check out the z-hat website for information.

Re: SCOVILL

Joe,

Did you follow through on this project?



Has anyone else done so?
