    Just build it, enjoy it and don't care about a bit of velocity loss :)
    It will not matter much out to 300 meters anyway.

    If speed is important, you should have 26" barrels or longer for most "fast" cartridges.

    Ditto the Alaskan. I love mine and am getting 2600 fps with 300 gr North Fork bullets in the 20" barrel.

    The 375 H&H is a fantastic caliber, but, The 9.3's, and the 338wm all loaded with the proper bullets have produced very similar results, KE as the 375's... There is a diference, but not by much. Happy B-day 375H&H....

    Though not on the same platform, but I am sure would be close would be the 35's.:p
