Anyone have thoughts or done work towards a 37 Nosler? Simply a 33 Nosler necked up to 375 caliber. It would be a bit shorter than the 375 Ruger case (2.46" vs 2.58"), which would be the attraction. It would fit very well in a Tikka action and/or keep long bullets from being seated so deeply. Additionally, less powder and needed barrel length required than a 375 Ruger to help further make a lightweight and shorter build sensible. Case capacity would be about 5 gr less than the H&H case, which, after factoring in likely better efficiency, would be a wash. A more ideal case design, less recoil, still matched with current bullet construction, and opening the door to even better BC bullets for a standard length action.

It fills the "gap" between the .376 steyr and the .375 Ruger.

Love my little steyr.

...............Interesting thought.....I did back in 2008 purchase a new Ruger Alaskan w/ 20" barrel and CRF action. Other than a few minor aspects regarding a 37 Nosler build, the Ruger Alaskan will do everything you mention above without any potential headaches of doing a build and less $$$$ too....

Sounds interesting but the cost??? I'm having a G&H 400 Whelen being made and though austere in amenities it will cost $ to do. Be Well, RZ

Not too concerned with filling a tiny gap, rather a case that can fit into a tikka action for a lighter weight rifle. And it wouldn’t hurt to have a shorter case to seat bullets out farther, like what the creedmoor does compared to the 260 Remington.

Love my Ruger Guide gun and FTW in 375 Ruger too, but they’re just at a different level of rifle weight.

It may be just a rechamber and rebore or barrel switch. But come on, we aren’t here in the wildcat forum to save money wink
