Re: My Dad's 30/375 S.I. by Straight Shot Gunsmithing

Read the whole thread.

You're making great progress.

However, I think your velocities are a bit puny. If'n yur gonna shoot with the geriatric set yur gonna have to step things up a bit.

Above was tongue-in-cheek but only a little....

Ever think of giving 50 BMG a try. With bullets on the heavy for bore side 50 BMG came into its own, over Retumbo, H-1000 and US-869 300 OTMs in a 338 RUM.

PS: ya best be getting it together before you shoot out that barred.

Its a fun thread. Keepr goin'.

Re: My Dad's 30/375 S.I. by Straight Shot Gunsmithing

Thanks Roy, i think the long bearing surface is the reason my velocities are low, and the fact i am about 2 grains below max. I want to hit 3035 with the 215s so i can just steal Jeff's dope in Townsend and hit my target with minimal work. One of my Dad's friends has a 50 BMG, he uses it for prairie dogs. Lol. I want to give it a try. I only have 144 rounds down the barrel, it should last until the end of next year. I hope the 215s are easy to develop a load for, i start school tomorrow so range time will be minimal.

Oh, my bad, i thought it didnt make much sense when talking about the cartridge. Lol

No i havent, i dont think i would have enough capacity to hit pressure before having to super glue and/or duct tape the bullet to the case to keep it from moving out on me.
