Re: necking down

mike as soon as i get back next week i will post the load . i do know it is h1000 with a 130 and a 215 primer. the load we use is at about 3400 and there is more there i have no sign of preasure. i also have 6.5 300 wbys and 6.5 stws and this runs in the same speed range and looks like it might get better barrel life my 6.5 wby gets about 900 to a barrel and the stw got 1000.and thoughs were both with 7828 this gun didnt like 7828 shot best with 1000 and 8700 the slower the better cant wait to try rl33. i have 4 for the 375 case wildcats and this one does not get used much.

    I neck my 375 down to 300 by using a .338 RCM and then a 300 SAUM. You might get away with .308 to .264 but that is a fairly big step. If you anneal the neck first, you will likely soften the shoulder as well and I wouldn't do that. I am amazed that your barrel life is that good with that kind of capacity and that short of neck to boot!.......Rich

    I appreciate the feedback,i am not to concerned about barrel life the 2 guns i have slated for swapping the barrels out are not going to see that much shooting,i looked at doing this with the dakota cases before ruger/hornady came out with the 375,i thought these would work just as well.
    These are gonna be call your "squeak"at 1000 yard guns and deer/elk medicine during the fall,anyways my thoughts are a pretty health dose of US-869 and 130 to 140 maybe even as heavy as 156gr woodliegh ought to do quite nicely.
