I'm sure there would be a lot more 375 long range shooters if there was a better selection of bullets for the would work well for long range applications. Amaxs certainly work well for long range applications.

Hey Lefty...

I would think you could get pretty close to that number with one of my RUM's

You should be able to... the 338 rum and edge will do it with 300's given enough bbl.. Something like the 250 gmx with a bit more weight/ bc would help a lot. I know the 260 ab hurts when you touch them off and they group decently so bonded is a possibility.
The 375 h@h will flat scream in the data that barnes #4 has. I have some v540 around; I may have to try that stuff with the 300tsx; They are quoting 2655 fps from the 300 tsx (I'm at 2550 with I 4320) and 2800 fps with the solid. I've been wanting to build up some engine block busters anyway; or are they big bore coyote loads??

I hate to rework a good shooting load though....
I'll probably build up a group or three and see whether their data has merit or they simply have a fast rifle.

I'm not a big fan of the a max for hunting purposes. However, if it gives us a bullet with a .8xx bc or better and under $2 a bullet... It's a win win.

Bullet selection is the only thing keeping my next build from being a 375. I'm sure there are quite a few more just like me. Really wish Berger would do it but I'd love to see Hornady get the ball rolling

375 tejas shooting rocks and steel, hunting mostly elk, 100-200 per year, the cheaper the bullet the more I will shoot.

Hornady, Sierra, and Nosler are all capable. They just seem to not even wet a finger and stick it up to find the way the wind is blowing anymore. They're all too busy putting out existing stuff, and if they don't watch it they will eventually succumb to the obstinance that eventually weakens mature businesses. The only refreshing thing I've seen out of them in the last few years is the lrab, and I'm not sure that was much more than a design update for their tipped pills to keep from eating Berger's dust in the BC department.
