Re: New 375 Sierra game king

I checked Sierra's website and I see a 350g Matchking, but no 350g Gameking. Are you referring to the Matchking?

I know Berger is planning to introduce a new .375 bullet, but I don't know anything about the planned weight or bc.

I ordered some 300g Cutting Edge bullets for my .375. They have a similar bc to the Sierra Matchkings. I believe I should be able to push them to around 2700 or so from my H&H. The down side is that they will be expensive to shoot. They will definitely not be plinking bullets!

I have been thinking about the long range potential of my H&H and plan to experiment a bit to see what it can do. If the CE bullets work out, I hope to use Bergers or Sierras as a less expensive alternative for practice bullets.

Of course, if the CE bullets work out, I will also have to switch to long range glass for my .375. Right now, it is set up as a short to medium range smasher.

67g of RL-17 out of a 29" barrel, yielding 2429 fps at 53,956 psi (so still some margin to work up hotter).

That is the current bullet of choice for .375 Cheytac users!
Do the math at 3100fps.

Re: New 375 Sierra game king

I'm running the standard APS 375 AM load with the 375 SMK @ 3250 ahead of 142.5 grains of Retumbo out of a 30" Pac Nor bbl.

However I would think a 375 H&H or RUM would be plenty sufficient for LRH.

Re: New 375 Sierra game king

That would make the 378 Wea. an interesting rifle, the 350MK for target/long range hunting and the 350TSX for close in mean stuff, along with a good muzzle brake I would think>
