Tried 3 rounds from my MRC for my first test today at 100yds. Swift 300gr A-Frame 375 H&H factory load. Was trying to use a Magnetospeed chronograph while doing it, but with my muzzle brake it wouldn’t record. If it keeps this up, I think they did a good enough load in their factory loads.
Having the muzzlebrake removed to see how I can handle it. The recoil doesn’t concern me, but loading another round and getting back on the target is my concern. I’ve fired a Ruger in 416 Rigby, 338 Lapua and a CZ in 458 Lott without a problem with recoil, but it just took me forever to reload and get back on target!

If it'll repeat, no need to look further.

My 375 doesn't have a break and I can recover quickly. Far quicker that I can my 416 Rem with a muzzle brake.

Hmmm...removed the muzzlebrake and went back to see how it would do. POI with the 300 A-frames dropped 5”! Never thought that heavy of a barrel would be changing harmonics that much!
Other results testing the Swift 300, NorthFork 300 SS and even my 1/2” consistently grouping 250 Barnes TTSX, all groups opened up and POI changed. Rather than starting all over on my loads, I think I’ll just put the brake back on until after my May hunt. At that point, I may or may not start over on my hand loads.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
