I am happy to say that this rifle ranks as one of the most accurate rifles I’ve had the privilege to shoot. I started this project after competing with my 28 Nosler Long Range Handgun in the 2018 National Match NRA 1 mile shoot in Indiana held at Camp Atterbury. I finished 17 out of 36 in the competition and received membership in the NRA One Mile Club. To the best of my knowledge I am the only individual ever to receive this award using a Long Range Handgun in an NRA/ELR rifle match. Towards the end of the match I was informed that I would not be able to compete using my Long Range Handgun next year due to current rules that stipulate all weapons must be shoulder fired. After receiving that news I decided to build a 375 Cheytac rifle that complies with NRA rules for next year‘s competition. The build and ammo components are as follows;
    Accurate Rifle Systems Chassis,
    Tac 408 Action,
    TriggerTech Diamond trigger,
    38in 1-7 twist K&P Barrel,
    T5 Terminator brake,
    Henry Rempel Bipod,
    Stephen Ivey 175MOA Adjustable Mount,
    Night Force 15-55 competition,
    Peterson Brass,
    Retumbo Powder,
    Lehigh Defense 353gr Match Solid Bullets,
    When you take a quality build with quality handloads using the best projectiles available (Lehigh Defense) the results are amazing as you can see in the photos above.

    Very cool. Definitely something different for a change. That .375 sure makes big holes! What does it weigh and how is the recoil?

    Thanks, Paul

    Would you mind providing a cost break down per round to reload? Im honestly interested in building something big, but cant justify it yet..

    The way the rifle set it weighs in right at 40 pounds, as far as recoil it is very minimal using the T5 Terminator brake.

    No you can't shoot it in the steel match at Briar Rabbit!
    Great looking rifle, please bring it to the next shoot for show and tell.

    7F - from the action you used, it would appear that you are using the ARS ELR chassis. Did they do a custom inlet for you? Who did the smithing?

    BTW, how do you like the shot-filled side panels?

    Thanks.

    I used a 1.6 dia Tac 408 Action with the ARS/ELR Chassis, they will inlet for just about any action. Smithing was done by a friend of mine. I am not using any shot in the chassis at this time.

    Now that is a nice setup. Makes my Surgeon Remedy 338 lapua look old fashion.

    It shoots great at a thousand yards but I have not been able to take it out beyond that yet.
