.375 bullets

Any one use a .375 for elk I am looking for the best bullet for elk hunting for long range hi BC is important but also needs to open up at low velocity (around 1500 fps impact velocity)

Re: .375 bullets

>>needs to open up at low velocity

Why? .375 is not enough for you?

Richard plans on making one (or so the rumor goes).

My 375 RUM shoots the 260gr AB really well (not really a high BC, long range bullet). It also likes the 300gr Sierra. Come to think of it, Kirby's creation seems to like anything I load up in that gun.

Haven't shot any critters with the 375, but judging from the rocks it busts up I'd say it should do fine on elk.

I think there are plenty of us waiting for something better than the 260gr AB.

Re: .375 bullets

Dave, thank you for the courtesy of your update and the very good news. I am about to become like the fella who was up to his butt in alligators but his mission was to drain the swamp--will appreciatre an e-mail, gca747@bellsouth.net, when they are released as my distributor has zero data from Sierra. Cordially, Overbore [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hopefully once a new 375 pill becomes available someone will post here. I think it's an awesome caliber waiting for the right projectiles.
