Re: Long Range Load for 375 H&H
Until recently, I shot my 375 H&H for both deer and elk (now have a 300 RUM for deer, but no desire to use it on elk). I have had really good success with the medium weight bullets, i.e. 270 gr. Specifically, I have been impressed with the Speer Soft Point Boat Tail 270 gr. It has a BC of .43 and I shoot in over 83 compressed grains of Accurate 4350, OAL 3.610. With a factory Rem 700 lightweight synthetic (9 pounds with scope bipod and sling) 24" barrel, I get 2790-2800 fps. I had the Leupold 4.5-14 vari-x III target model on it, and it was very accurate around .5-.8 inch at 100 and maintained 1 moa to 500 (farthest I shot it). I took my first elk with it a 425 and it dropped in its tracks (bullet went between ribs behind shoulder, but did plenty of damage to internals lungs/heart without hardly any meat damage).
I had this rifle for a while, and it is has proven to be a very suitable 500 yard rifle.
Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
