Re: Need some advise

jde512, I think your 30-378 is more than enough at 500 to 1000 yard range on elk size game.

Re: Need some advise

Makes me wonder how a 416 Rigby throated for the VLD 416 Barrett bullets would perform ....

Re: Need some advise

I realize the 30-378 is good to a 1000+ Yards as I mentioned in first post I just would like to try a differant cal for a change and was trying to figure out what would work with this action, the 30-378 preforms very well at a 1000 yards

Re: Need some advise

I think the 7mm-338LM would be interesting. Just order your barrels two at a time.

Would love to hear how it turns out.

Good luck.

30-338 Lapua.... skip the Imp, just go basic and neck down. Outstanding brass, outstanding cartridge.

For elk, go with a 30 or bigger...

Re: Need some advise

im not sure if its possible, but could you do a 7mm-378??? just neck down the existing 30-378 cases, would be the same everything just new barrel, sizing die and projectiles...

the heavy 7mm projeciles are much better (higher SD and BC) for LR work than the 30cal offerings...

Re: Need some advise

Would that be significantly bigger/faster than a 7 mm RUM (which you can buy commercially)?
