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?
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.
