Re: Lightweight .375H&H bullet results?
I use light bullets in my 9.3x62 which is .366 cal.
232gr bullets in the 9.3x62 are available from Norma (Vulkan and Oryx) and allow 2,600fps instead of 2,200fps with 286gr.
Lead on moving shots is reduced as is, recoil and muzzle flip. I have shot 3 bull moose and a bull moose calf with the 232gr and found them to work well on a well placed shot but there is much less margin for error.
The last bull I shot was a raking shot as it ran diagonaly away. The shot was perfect for line but the bullet stopped short at the diaphragm. The bullet had over expanded and with the lesser momentum penetration was lacking.
This problem is likely to be more accute with the extra velocity of the 375H&H. A barnes X is likely the answer. That is what I plan on using (250gr in the 9.3)next time.
