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.

I was wondering if anyone had a reliable formula for adjusting factory advertised muzzle velocity for shorter barrels

I was thinking (like I need to stop doing that) that a handy little 375 with a 20" barrel and topped with something like one of those holo sights might be a really nice "truck gun" for those evening rides down the pasture.

I love the cartridge, there are 4 in the rack and 2 belong to my daughters so its kind of a family staple

So, anyone have a thought?

.375 ruger alaskan? ;)

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

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
