Thanks fellows I thought that would be a fun question.I am retired now since 1996 and spend a day a week at the range some times 2 0r 3 days weather permitting.I have been reloading now for 50 + years and sure do have fun shooting.
If I could afford it I would have many more calibers to play with.With those long list some of you must be retired too.So you know how much fun I have.
The best to all of you and shoot straight.
My last day was 10/31/95, so we're about even there. I don't shoot as many different rounds as I used to. I financed some of my hunts by buying clunkers at gun shows, tunin' and sprucin' 'em up and resellin' 'em. Now I'm reduced to .22, .260, 20 gauge, smokeless .36 and .50 muzzys. I don't load for the handguns any more, I can buy practice ammo cheaper, and nobody oughta use reloads for self defense.

Mybigredford,
I'm assuming that a 338-375 is a 338 cartridge on a 375 H and H case? Wow! Sounds interesting. Let us know how that one turns out.

yeah i am not sure what exactly it is, i guy a work with has a buddy thats selling it and my co worker says that its a 338 that shoot two different types of ammo, now i wasnt sure about that but what i found was a gun listed as a 338/375,(or maybe it was 338/357) so like you said i am assuming that it is a 338 in a 375 (357) casing, anyways i am anxious to check it out and see what it really is. all i know is that the gun is a weartherby, and it is brand new, never had a full box of shells ran through it yet. oh yeah apparantly it knocks you on your ass, lol, i will let you know what happens.
