:D Happy Day's.
I bought a DW 375 Super Mag-8" bll today,I should have it inhand by friday,came with dies and some brass.I do have 2 -.375 moulds I will have to see if the bullets will fit the DW cylinder.
This will go with its bigger brother (7414) very nicely.

Picked up the DW 375 today,It is in a Monson,MA factory box.
Thank the Lord,I got a real beauty ,almost perfect condition w/slight cylinder line but all else prestine.Also got a set of Redding 375 SuperMag dies AND Lee 375 Winchester dies with the gun,with about 100 brass.The Lee dies have obviously been cut down to DW 375 length.I will shoot some 245gr LFNGC and 200gr Sierra's this weekend,the Sierra's came with the gun also.
I will post a picture when I get time.

As an Update:
I loaded some 245 cast in the 375 SM ,velocities ran to 1340 w/H110 and about the same w/Hornady 220gr .I really thought the velocities would be slightly higher
I found a couple of atricles on the 375 SM at singleactions.com (Lee Martin) concerning barrel twist rate (1-14" for DW 375) and the 375 SM velocities and decided to locate a gunsmith that would make me a few DW barrels 6-8-10" with a 1-18" twist rate .Probably will be 6 weeks or so before I get the gun and new barrels back.
One good thing since I have a 7414 SM w/6-8-10" blls,the shrouds are interchangeble with the 375 SM so all I need are barrels for the 375 and I am ready to shoot.

If you don't mind, how much are the barrels gonna cost?? I have a 8" 357 mag and want a faster twist barrel.

The 24"-375 barrel is 200.00,I had to buy the complete barrel since he has NO need for a 375 barrel,+ 100.00 for each barrel cut and threaded.
He probably has 357 barrels in stock so it should be cheaper for you.
