    The .375 Rimless sends a 270 grain bullet down range at 2200 fps using IMR 3031 and at 2250 fps with H4895. Original factory loads using 45 grs of cordite sent it at 2150 fps, from a 25" barrel. I think the velocity loss for a shorter barrel will...

    I have a 219 Zipper Improved. It is a great cartridge. I have read that the 255 Win case is stronger than the 30-30 case you will have to use to make your cartridges with; but I haven't cut a 225 Win case in half to confirm this. They are just...
