    Has anybody had any experience necking down a 375 ruger case to either 30 cal or 7mm? Am interested in how it would compare to the WSMs and RUMs.
    I though Ruger would have brought out a whole family based on this case but they went with RCMs instead

    Cheers Matt

    I know someone who necked it down to a 338, I believe he said it had a very similar capacity as the 330 dakota, with much cheaper brass...

    Thats better known as the .338 Campfire. I started working on a .30 version that I was calling the .300 Cana, but gave the idea up and bought a .300 RUM.

    With my estimations I had early on, it would push a 200gr to around 3000.

    Here was some info I had gobbed together

    A while back I looked at the 375 Ruger for a 7mm chamber. It is very close to the Dakota which puts it fairly evenly between the the WSM's and Rum's.
