The paper on the Enabler is loaded with bias so it's far from being a fair and serious analysis (with lots of apple to oranges...) and I love AB claim about the Cheytac not being "magazine feed-able with the longer bullets" WTF???Even though the OP was concerning the 375XC and 375CT I'm going to mention the 375 Enabler only because of Bryan Litz's comments in his write up about the Enabler. In summary he was stating that the large capacity cartridges were having issues with velocity deviation due to the fouling caused by the larger case capacities. I'm not sure where the 375CT would fall into that category but I assume the 375XC with its lesser case capacity would be right in line with the 375 Enabler...
I've no experience or knowledge to disagree with you in the least. The info on the Enabler is certainly a sales driven informational piece that paints the product in its best light.The paper on the Enabler is loaded with bias so it's far from being a fair and serious analysis (with lots of apple to oranges...) and I love AB claim about the Cheytac not being "magazine feed-able with the longer bullets" WTF???
Having said this, I'm working on a 37XC build (not 375XC ) and the performance is there. Don't understand why some people claims the 375CT can go faster because most of the comparisons are based on different barrel length. 37XC case is longer than 375CT which at least should put them on the same velocity potential at the SAME barrel lenght.
Yes sir, will follow on as soon as I get it done.I've no experience or knowledge to disagree with you in the least. The info on the Enabler is certainly a sales driven informational piece that paints the product in its best light.
I found it interesting and educational that the fouling was driving the velocity deviations. Good info to know going forward for sure.
Are you going to be posting your experience with the 37XC? I would be very interested to see your results, it looks to be a very promising round.
I use a regular old rock chucker to load my snipetac. It fits just fine so don’t let that deter you from the bigger round.I'd do some research before committing but the 37XC does seem like a decent sort with a lot less upfront cost than buying a big enough action for the CT. As for the DT there are guys who do barrels. I built a 33XC for my DT and so far I'm impressed. 31" barrel and I'm getting 3350 out of the 265 Cutting Edge Lazers. Heading out to a shoot next week to see how far we can go. I'm going with a friend who was hitting at 2700 last year with his Desert Tech HTI in 375 Cheytac. We shall see how it goes.
I will say the 33XC brass from Peterson seems to be pretty good. The dies I got from Tubb for the XC can be used for the 33 or 37 by switching bushings and the dies work well. I'm seeing .001" of runout or less so far. I like the idea of being able to use my 338 Lapua action for the longer range 33XC. Love to have the Cheytac but don't want to spend $6K to get started.
Brass for the XC is a little over $2 a case but I'm using the press, shell holder and other equipment I've already got for the 338 Lapua so don't need to buy all that.
You must choose. I'm thinking I might buy a blank for the 37XC and give it a shot in the not too distant future.
