I've done it many, many times.. Only two issues I see. You will not be able to eject a loaded round as the ejection port is not long enough, and depending on the thickness of the brass rim, you may have extraction issues. The extractor will need to be removed, and reduced in thickness by about .015". Sliding extractors are easy to remove and correct.
Other than those two issues, the BAT is a good choice.... Until the Curtis .408 action arrives.:cool:

Thanks for the help I was not aware of these issues. Are there any actions that accomadate for these cartridges with longer OAL than the standard Cheytac? And extractors that need no removal or modification?

My 375 AM is built on a bat action that is stamped CT72 after the company address.

I guess its a CT???? The M is hex I think though not sure.

No problems whatever...
