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!!!
