    lightbulbi had a howa 1500 ss in the houge stock 24 in barrel chamberd in 375 ruger nice gun but had a few problums with it that bothered me so it went off as trade now i would like to build somthing similer i have my action and stock. Right now it is a 300 win mag now i have found reamers from 4d reamer rental for the 358-375ruger and i am sitting on a ton of 35 cal bullets a 1000 or more 200gr rem core lock and about 500 225 acubonds . i dont have a 35 cal rifle to use them in and i have brass from the 375 so i can just form it down. the outher choise would be to sell or trade the 35 cal stuff to someone that can use it and just build a straight up 375 ruger any thaughts or opinnions please.

    The 35 or 338 might have a little more versatility, but I am sold on the 375 Ruger. I have the short lived Alaskan model with the black laminated stock and 23" SS barrel with no brake. It is turning in great groups, and is a bit a of a confidence booster every trip to the range.
