Question on a caliber?

Welcome to the site Jim. Where are you in Ore?

I saw this when you posted but don't have the first clue about it. There's someone here, Madden I think that has one and Dugaboy. dugaboy not around a lot but don't know where madden is. He'll probably be around before long. What you going to use it on?

I have it chambered in the TC Encore. The barrel is custom, and it performs better than book. Just a cool old round.

note the .22 long rifle near the bottom

Who did your barrel? I see Match Grade Machine http://www.matchgrademachine.com/ has it in their custom chamberings. Personally I think the 9.3X74 in an Encore would make a deluxe timber riflle for elk.

I had it built for Elk also. Mike Sirios of OTT did it. http://www.ottllc.com/
Mine is throated to allow seating the bullet out . It will reach it out there abit farther than the factory rounds.
Currently he's doing a 300-376 OTTR in a pistol length for me, for Elk also. Big smile

Is that a .300 built on the 376 Styer? If so I ought to talk to him. I was thinking of a 8mm/376 Styer.

Yes, it's on the the Steyr case WyoJoe. Mike can make up what ever you want. All you have to do is let him know what the dimensions you want. Or if you have him do it on his design, it will have a radiused shoulder. He's done a .338-376 also. Also he will make the dies for you too. Mike, as far as barrels goes, is unique. He patented his EDM process for machining the chambers, and his tolerences are tight. And they shoot awesome. You can either send him a barrel blank, or he uses Douglas.
One must have patience, he is a one man shop and he is busy. But his work is worth the wait. I just received 4th barrel from him. He already has #'s 5 and 6 there. Another for the Encore, and then he's rebuilding my XP 100.
#5 being the .300-376. The XP is being set up strictly for long range target and Prairie Dog work, chambered in the 6mm AI.
