Swiss RUAG has developed a new Sniper Round to replace the .338 Lapua Magnum.
https://fragoutmag.com/ruag-am...rformance-made-easy/

Based on a modified .378 Weatherby Case it REALY gets 2845fps. using their own 350grs. FMJ Bullet.
Yes, and belive it or not, it will stay supersonic at about 1600 Meters.....

I don´t know what someone is doing with some "real accomplishment" as they describe it....

Help needed......

Best

What is the case head diameter?
Is it comparable to the 375 Chey-Tac?

How soon before one of these guns is converted to 500 Jeffrey?! It’s already got all the feeding kinks hopefully worked out.

This is exciting to have a new source of brass for wildcatting and for making 500 Jeffery cases. If I read this correctly, the rim is larger at .588” vs .575” of the Jeffery so a Rigby or Weatherby bolt could be used.

This needs a new wildcat idea...
550 Swiss/Jeffery! It would be a 400 Whelen like shoulder. Maybe 550 Fondue is a better name.
