    I just got my 375 RUM back from being rebarreled by Brian owner of Shoot-Long | Long Range Rifles, Long Range Shooting Rifle was just a Stainless BDL in 375 rum but the barrel was horribly rough and fouled quickly and was very hard to clean. So I sent it to brian and he put a Fluted #5 Benchmark 10 twist 5R rifling finishing at 28" and a .750 CSR brake on it. The bolt is a Spiral Fluted from PTG with a speedlock firing pin assembly. Timney Trigger and Wyatts extended magazine box, The fit and Finish are pretty much as close to perfect as you can get.. This is the second rifle I have had Brian build, the first was a 375 ruger for my dads alaska brown bear hunt and that rifle shoots very well. I expect this one to do the same.

    Nice rifle. I Just got done building a .416-.375 RUM for my new guide companion. I love how your wood looks, but unfortunately I needed something a little more salt resistant and went with fiberglass. I bet the 300 and 320 grain CE bullets would shine for the long rang game coming out of your 28" tube with some H-1000 filling the case. Whatever you feed it it will be a hammer.
