lately i have been testing a .375 winchester ported barrel on my "new model" contender. this 14" barrel by thompson-center is a daisy, and is altogether pleasant to shoot ( unlike my 45-70 barrel ).
cronograph tests with a heavy speer 270 gr bullet and imr 4064 powder run nearly 2300 fps, ejecting smoothly w/o undue case stretching.
i like the caliber, but am dissapointed with available low velocity bullets...and wonder about field exposier/ game effectiveness. anyone have suggestions?
