just ordered myself a factory 375 h&h barrel and I´m curious if it´s possible (safe) to (ackley?)improve it
probably not something I´m going to do but it would be nice to know if it´s safe or if somebody has tried it before.
I have wondered the same thing myself. I believe Van Horn sells the
.375 Wea. & they would be good to ask. Many times in an AI re-chamber
the barrel needs to be set-back in order to obtain proper headspace. With
the Encore barrel this is not an option. The .375JRS is a little longer to the neck with the same parent case (8mm Rem. Mag). & you should be able to rechamber to that. I am not as sure about the 375 Wea. Mag. concerning this dimension but I do know you can fire 375 Mag. in the Wea. like you can in an Ackley. I think Van Horn rechambers existing barrels so again I would contact them.
TRick, I haven´t gotten around to it yet.I´ll send an email to van horn and j.d. later.they´ll probably know what´s safe in these guns.
I´ve been thinking about something like the rigby or taylor,but I have to test the h&h first.
In my opinion it actually helped with the balance. The barrel on the 416 Rigby is like the 375H&H, a heavy barrel. A few of my friend were very impressed with the lack of recoil, the balance and mostly the accuracy.
