I have made a decision. I have wanted for a while a 375 Weatherby magnum custom rifle but got so involved with my 257-300Wby and 270-300Wby customs that I could not afford to do it. Well, in dealing with the 257-300 and the 270-300 I realized that there is going to be a lot of over lap between the two and at times depending on what I would be hunting I would have a tough time deciding which one to use. Well I am bitting the bullet. I am going to build a 375Wby on a Mark V action with a B&C Metalist stock, with a #3 contour 25" shilen barrel with a Brockman on/off muzzle brake which is the same brake on my 270-300Wby. It will have a Zeiss Conquest on it. I have decided to do away with my 257-300Wby because it is to close to the 270-300Wby in capability and they over lap to much and since I want the added power of the 270-300Wby, I will use the camo stock and action from my 257-300Wby. I will be pushing a 300gr Partition at 2800fps and a 300gr TSX at 2860fps and a 250gr A-Frame 3000fps and a 250gr TSX at 3050fps and a 260gr Partition at 3000fps. Now these are velocities from manufactured ammunition. When I reload I will be able to exceed these velocities because these are velocities out of a 24" barrel and when you add my 25" not counting the brake and that reloading generally one can out do factory ammo this will be a good 375 cartridge and rifle. Now I do not know for sure if I will get these velocities out of a 25" Shilen barrel in 375Weatherby. These are just a guess using Weatherby, Conely and Nosler manufactured data. I assume I will exceed them since those represent velocities out of a 24" barrel. I can't wait should have it around the middle of June or first of July. So if I get a chance to go to Alaska in 2009 or 2010 and Tanzania again in 2009 I will have a good rifle and cartridge. Yes I am excited.
