Safe to say that someone has tried virtually everything you can think of, but there's no reason not to do it again!

Check with Handloader magazine. They had an article on the .375/.308 back in the late 1970's or early 1980's.

I know of a fairly obscure wildcat called the 375 Forsberg that was a 375 bullet in a shortened 308 case. I think Frank Barnes listed it in a volume of "Cartridges of the World". HD1

HD - do you happen to know what the case length was for the 375 Forsberg?

I think the .375 Forsberg uses a similar case length as the 308 x 1.5" cartridge. I'll look for my copy of C.O.T.W. I can't remember what edition it was in, but I'll check. HD1

Dies from CH/4D ... figure on about 2400-2600fps with a 200gr projectile from a 20" barrel.

I built one, sold it ... about to build another. Wont do anything a 358Win wont do, but its a fun little cartridge.
Cheers...

Don't know anybody who went down to 30 caliber but I know of a guy who went down to .338 and he loves it. I have no numbers only that he seems to be pretty pleased with the results.
