    Anyone out there have one with a 26 inch barrel or longer what kind of velocity and accuracy can I expect? I plan on shooting bullets anywhere from the 235gr to the 270gr. I was thinking of one with a 28 inch pipe on it.

    Let me tell you about my "Monkey Blaster" [​IMG] (A Rem 700 in a Sendaro stock with a 26" barrel and chambered for 375 H&H.)

    In truth I don't know the actual velocity but I expect to get somewhere near that advertised for the factory loads,
    http://webpages.charter.net/375magnum/factory.htm#rem

    or about 2,600 fps for 300 grain projectiles.

    To me it looks like a 375 H&H will have about the same trajectory (come-ups) as a 308 Win and that's why I've placed my order for one.

    Thanks Dave, You will have to let me know what you get for velocity when you get your monkey blaster back [​IMG] I have been kicking the 338 Win or 338 Ultra idea around but the 375 I think would be close to 338 Ultra if you put a long pipe on it and a bigger hole to boot.
