    I got two #3s in 375 win now. Shooting 235gr spire points not bad but looking for better. I got rid of Marlin because of OAL.

    Dmr50,

    If you have the 375, then what about the 411 JDJ. A straight taper to 41 cal from the 444 Marlin case?

    Can't have taper or neck. I live in JDJ country, their about 40mi up the river. My Bro is into them and has a dozen different cals for his TCs.

    Back in 80s we were trying to build a gun to get around Ohio slug laws. This was before they OKed rifled barrels. We used 444 brass
    with short neck to 41 to make a super 410 slug gun. Used Brit Enfield. Had smooth bore barrel fitted that was a new 1919 MG we had bored out. Project was a flop. It would shoot neither 410slugs or 41 bullets accurately, but it did send them down the road at warp 56.

    Tapered cases are legal for deer in Ohio. Many of the more popular Ohio deer legal cartridges are tapered, 45-70, 450BM, 444M, etc., however bottleneck cases are explicity illegal.

    They aren't splitting hairs on 47/70 and such because even though they have small taper the state recognizes them as staight cases. A full taper of significant degree I'm sure would get you a court date at the least.

    I wonder if the 9.3X74R would qualify as a straightwall?

    Case capacity is 83.2 gr. H20. Could load with 200+ grain bullets and probably develop
    a pretty flat shooting round. Pure speculation on my part. I have no experience with
    this cartridge.

    Of course you would need a new barrel for that one.

    T.S.

    you can FF the 9.3x74r to a non-bottleneck 44 cal, affectionately known as the 44 Bodeen Rimmed. The 44 BR has the same case head and mouth diameters as a 444M and holds about 90g of h2o. I and a friend have built a couple of times them, single shot h&r, reamed 444M. Legal gun for deer on ohio. I bit of a handful in a light single shot.

    I'm wondering what could, or has been, done with the Russian 7.62x54R case.
