Re: 338 WSM or 375 WSM

I have a friend back in FL. that built a 338WSM but he hasnt shot it much yet, still setting it up. He also built a 458 RUM (talk about a romper stomper) over 100ft/lbs
of recoil with a 600 gr. Barnes "O" Bullet @
2300 Fps out of a 10 lb. rifle (Yes its scoped too). LOTS OF FUN!! But not exactly long range though. It will however throw a 350gr speer hotcore out at over 3000fps.

    Any data on a .375 wsm? FPS or FPE?

    Would it have the punch for cape buffalo?

    I met someone in RSA who is having one built and said he would use it on buff. I have my doubts but no facts [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Who is gunsmith with 375WSM reamer, please. I hunt deer around Icy Strait area of AK......lots of bears learn about gunshot dinner bell and I hate approaching 30mph snow cloud with brown nose sticking out front of it. Old guy with implant shoulder, bad ears who falls down a lot and dislikes noisy, snow packed brakes. 7mm and 30 fan but need longer recoil push of 375. 9.3X62 just not kinky enough.
