Re: 375 rum for long range hunting

I have Hornady's 9th Edition and it doesn't show the 300gr SpBT interlock as discontinued. But my manual is a first printing so maybe things have changed. I too have found tough game bullet turn to FMJ's when the velocity drops. Fact is there are no perfect bullets. Pick's this one for this an' that one for that...

Nice to see someone else use the 45/70 up close. My Ruger #3 can take a lot of pressure so a 300gr does 2400fps and the 400gr goes 2100fps. The drop for the 300gr is 12" @ 300yds when sighted @ 200yds and it doesn't climb more than 3.5" above the cross hairs. It is the Hammer of Thor on everything inside of 200yds!!!

Re: 375 rum for long range hunting

Chuck. I have finished my 375 and got to the range to test some loads keep in mind my gun has a 32in barrel first was 87grs Imr 7828 no psi and under 1/2 moa all 3 shots same hole then 91grs RL25. Same thing so now I need to put them over crony hoping to get 2800fps with the long barrel I have had good luck with RL 25 so I'm going to run that I could go up 3-5 grs and still be ok but accuracy was great so as long as volcity is over 2700 I'm good if not ill push it will not except less

Are you using the 350gr smk's? I have to ask because there has been a fair amount of different bullets talked about here. Did you ever try H1000?

Thanks, Eric
