.375 Barrels for big magnums

hey can anyone reccomend a barrel manufacturer that makes a suitable barrel for a .375 Cheytac firing 350gn+ bullets, looking for 1:11 to 1:11.5 twist rate

Re: .375 Barrels for big magnums

cheif,
Here are just a few:

Krieger- 1:12x
Lawton- any twist you want
Shilen-1:12x
Pac Nor- 3 groove 1:12x and 1:15
5 groove 1:8x and 1:12x
6 groove 1:10x and 1: 14x
Broughton- 1:12x
Depending on what bullet you plan to shoot in the 375, barrel twist can be quite critical.

cheers for that,most of the hand-lathed high B.C bullets that i have found reccomend a 1:11 twist, would I be better to have more twist rather than not enough for those heavy bullets?

I'm not familiar with what twist would be required for the solids, but I beleive 11x would be about right for the 350gr SMK.
