    What’s your beater rifle?

    No it’s a FN barreled action in a Bishop stock. Its a custom job done sometime in the 50s or 60s. I wish I still had my custom JC Higgins 270. Ebony forend tip and grip cap slimed down stock packmyer rubber butt plate timiny trigger. Shot 1 inch groups all day with anything I gave it. Like a...

    I tell you what though a 375 turns a cinder block into a dust cloud!!! With a satisfying thwack too.

    I think I need to install a recoil reducer. For two reasons balance, it’s a little muzzle heavy. The second is obvious I’m a little more sensitive to recoil than I thought. All I used to own was a 300 Win Mag and a 375 Ruger. But that was years ago. I’ve spent the past couple years shooting 308s...

    Monolithic .375 bullets

    So I have an over active imagination sometimes....point in case I went to the museum with my family about a month ago. My 4 year old son says he has a surprise and makes me close my eyes as soon as we walk in. I’m expecting to see the world class T-Rex skeleton that’s been there since I was his...

    Home made golf ball cannon is the biggest thing I’ve fired. 30~ inch barrel with 2 film canisters worth of black powder. That’ll make a golf ball disappear.

    I know Barnes quit making them in 375:rolleyes: And Nosler makes them. How do they compare and why are they so expensive compared to what Barnes was selling them for?

    Well I just checked and it’s been discontinued by the manufacturer. It was some good stuff.

    I’ve been using Gunslick brand graphite grease. I just lube the raceway with it a watch TV working the bolt. It’s and old tube I’ve had for 15 years. Works great. I honestly don’t even now if it’s still made.

    It ejects with authority now and will feed empty cases. Also a perfect arc just below the scope, cases don’t touch anything but the ground :D I just have dumb luck with rough actions. I was fully prepared for 2 hours of polishing. I’m working the action in now with Gunslick. It’s glassy smooth now.

    I have seen that done and it’s a wonderful idea if you have the scope to make it work. So far nothing I have feed it hits the turret. It feeds empties now after I worked on the massive burrs on the underside of the bolt raceway and polished the feed ramp. Wouldn’t feed anything when I got it...

    She cleans up nice huh! I decided to go with a red triangle post. Very fast and bright during the day. I was crunching some numbers the other day and the Shepherd 3-10x42 DRS P2 reticle off my 308 will work with the 260/270 grain load. So that may be my elk scope I don’t know yet.

    I got my Model 70 Safari Express to feed (.416 Remington Magnum)

    Let’s see a picture of the brass. If it’s scratched length wise that’s a burr on the bottom of the bolt raceway. That will clog up the works big time. I’ve now had to clean up the burr on 2 Kimber's 4 Montana’s 1 FN and 1 Ruger M77 Alaskan
