The .375 EnABELR Cartridge — Big and Fast
The .375 EnABELR cartridge is slightly shorter than a .375 CheyTac so it allows the round to mag-feed. Applied Ballistics is currently using brass made by Peterson. The .375 EnABELR has achieved impressive velocities — 2990 FPS — with prototype Berger 379-grain solid bullets fired from a 1:7″-twist 30″ barrel.
A while back, world-renowned ballistician and shooter Bryan Litz of Applied Ballistics contacted Derek Peterson of Peterson Cartridge and explained his idea for two new calibers that he believes will be high performers in the ELR (Extreme Long Range) shooting community … the .338 EnABELR and the .375 EnABELR.
The name “EnABELR derives from the combination of three concepts:
- En – representing “Engineered”
- AB – representing Applied Ballistics
- ELR – for Extreme Long Range
Litz’s premise was to create a caliber that is shorter and wider than the CheyTac® calibers, but that holds almost as much powder. The theory is that the wider case will allow the powder to burn more efficiently, resulting in less, to no, unburnt powder build-up in the rifle barrel.
