…and oh boy how it functions.

Started with 200 grainers at 2920fps. Recoils is about the same as 30-06 with hunting rounds and suppressor. Took me two shots to get it sighted. Measuring tape, working adjustment clicks and calculator works wonders




Then loaded hunting ammo using 250gr ttsx’s. Didn’t see any pressure indications but stopped at 2745fps as it seemed to be accurate load. Three shot group in the picture



All in all I’m very pleased with the rifle and caliber. I shot 40 rounds today without any pains in my shoulder. Suppressor cuts recoil very nicely helped with the weight of the rifle.
Action functions flawlessy and feeds and ejects without a hiss. Set trigger is something that will take time to get used to.
Now I just wait for the season to start.

    The .375 is very versatile round. Curious as to weight? Im going to guess 5.8kg.

    Are you using the Norma 200-201-202 powders? I am curious to what powders. The .375 with a 270gr bullet almost duplicates the trajectory of a 30-06 and .180gr bullet at 300yds.

    Beautiful
    The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.
