375 and 416 high BC bullets

I have been playing with my 375 ultra quite a bit here lately and I have to say it is quickly becoming one of my favorite chamberings. I have been thinking about a new build for some time and I have am thinking I want a long 28-30" heavy barrel 375 or 416 ultra mag. I am going to base my final decision on bullet selection I think. I know about the .375 350gr smk's that are around what other high BC bullets are available in 375? and what is there for 416? I dont want to pay any more than about a buck a piece for bullets if I can help it.

    If you don't wont to pay for high BC 375 or 416 bullets you might be better staying with the 338 berger?

    After a little more research it looks like ill be paying closer. To $2+ per bullet. Which is fine i guess i just want to know what is out there. So disregard the price limit. (I already have a 338 lapua and run 300 smk's in it.

    Tikkamike,
    I'm going to build a .416 weatherby mag. I'm going to shoot the cuttingedge 375grn bullet at an easy 2800fps. This bullet has a B.C of .825. This will be my longrange canyon hammer

    I shoot both 378 Wby and 416 Wby the new Barnes TTSX are promising. Wish I could get more weight however running the numbers the lighters do better inside of a grand anyway. They are fun to shoot, every thing I have touched with th 378 dumped, moose, wolf, brownie. Used the Barnes X 270 grn on those. Loaded some 260 ABs but not shot anything yet, they group well.

    260 gr Accubond run .473 the cutting edge bullets run a lot higher if you get the speed up to about 2800+ don't know the numbers for the smks. Been too hard trying to find them but would love to try them.
