    7-375 Ruger

    I have built a couple of rifles with this calibre now.
    I have two reamers one for short throat T3 Tikkas, 162 at mag length, & one for Rem 700.
    It can be made by reaming out a 7mmRem Mag.
    Both of the rifles I have built were done this way.
    Recoil is basically non-existent with my T2 Terminator muzzle brake.

    This one is the 700 one it weighs 2.915 Kgs.









    It shoots very well for a thin factory barrel that has been fluted





    Here is a target shot at 618 yards with the Berger 180 Hybrids



    It is basically the same size as a 7mm Rem mag but doesn't have the belt & has less taper.

    It's performance is very similar to the big 7mm STW, so falls between the 7mm Rem mag & the 7mm RUM.
    This one with its 25.5" barrel pushes the 162 A-max around 3250fps & 180 Hybrid around 3150fps.

    The Tikka 695 had a 24" barrel & was about 30 fps slower with the 162s

    Here it is 280ai, 7mmRM, 7-375 with 162 & 180 Rem 700 long throat



    Very impressive performance for an easy mag feed 7mm round.

    I have brass & dies available

    It can be a very easy & economical to build by simply reaming a 7mmRem mag

    The price for this rifle is $3480 Inc gst.

    Built on a new Rem 700 SPSS 7mmRM

    This includes fluted bolt & barrel, alloy rail, lightened trigger, alloy bolt shroud & lightweight firing pin, T2 Terminator Muzzle brake, Stug stock, load development, 100 Hornady brass & all freight.

    McMillan Carbon stock an extra $450

    Hornady dies are $150

    With all my builds I can supply powder, projectiles, scopes, etc

    All the machining on all the rifles I sell is done by professional gunsmiths during normal working hours, with their own reputations & businesses at stake.

    It depends on the model Toby

    The Hunters Edge looks the same & is the same weight.

    The A3 & A5 are heavier & suit more of an LR rig.

    Here is another 7mm-375 built on a 7mm Rem mag Remington SPSS.
    It weighs 7.6lbs with the VX6 3-18x44 in Talley rings.
    It has a T2 brake, Stug stock, fluted bolt & barrel, lightweight firing pin, bolt shroud, mag box, bolt release, bolt handle & receiver.
    It shoots the 162 amax at 3250fps sub 1/2 moa.

    You mention a tikka 695. is the mag long enough for this 7-375? I have a 695 in 7mm rem mag that I was going to re-barrel to the same calibre, but after seeing this im having second thoughts. How do you go about necking down the brass?

    I have two reamers, a long throat for Rem 700s & a short throat for Tikka T3s, the 695 is between the two of them so just get it throated to suit.

    I have dies that make it pretty simple to neck the brass down from .375 to 7mm, then it gets a light neck turn to clean it up.

    Could it be done without turning the neck? Would want to neck down the 375 brass myself, but if its too much hassle would just stick with 7mm rem mag. Would be cool to have a wildcat though

    I can supply the brass ready to fire no problem.

    It only has to be formed once.

    I have fired a couple of cases more than twenty times so brass life is pretty good

    It generally is about 200fps up on a Rem mag so a pretty reasonable performance increase.
