I'm getting ready to shoot my 375 RUM for the first time this weekend...
I have 3 different seating dies, RCBS, Redding (standard), and a Forster Micrometer seating die
Anybody modify a Redding die for a micrometer seater?
Are any of you guys shooting the 353 Lehigh's?
If so, did you have a die company, or a machinist open up the top of the die to get the bullets to seat?
I have a .300" Freebore reamer
What is your freebore?
And at what bullet jump are you finding the best accuracy with the 350 Sierras?
(yes, I know I will tune my own loads/rounds, but I want a head start of sorts)
I know this is way back in the thread,but, had to laugh at it. My 375 H&H Ruger #1 Tropical, I bought back in the 80's, I used to trick guys into shooting it, just to see their face right after squeezing the trigger, and that was with the H&H 270's no brake. I can just imagine with the bigger case....LOLAnything less than a 10-11 # rifle, even with a brake will still kick the **** out of you. I had one of the lightest 338 EDGEs built by Shawn years ago at 11# when he was building most of them at 15-16# to keep them at Idahos weight limit, and even with a brake and the 300g SMKs at 2850fps, it rocked your ***. Just food for thought. I wouldn't even think of a sub 10# rifle in a 375, that's just dumb...Then again, I like heavier rifles, they are easier to shoot at LR especially after you're huffing and puffing up and down the mountain...

Is this Luke?@Earnhardt did you end up shooting the 353gr LeHighs? If so how’d it go? Barrel length/Powder/Charge Weight/Velocity? My barrel is hopefully getting chambered next week. Can’t wait to stretch it out. Seems like with lower weight projectiles people are using H4350, w/ the 350s H1000 (currently I’ve got neither of those)…w/ a 32” barrel shooting 365grers I’m contemplating using N565, N570, or even considering trying H50bmg…there’s no data out there for these heavy monos
