375 Ruger ?

Has anyone heard about this? I heard that this cartridge will have 375 H&H Performance in a std. action. I hope it offers a little more, but then again there is the 375RUM.

Re: 375 Ruger ?

I had this in General discussion because it may not be relevant for long range shooters but I found this.

Re: 375 Ruger ?

Have you found any more info on this round? I wonder how close it comes to being a 376 Steyr?

It is faster than that, if you click on my source you will see it is faster than the 375H&H and a little slower than the RUM.

Re: 375 Ruger ?

If the 375 RUM didn't sell well and from actual data from about a month ago, it took 13 shots from a 375H&H to down one elephant and 7 shots from a 416 to down another elephant, what makes Ruger think a 375 Ruger will be a hot item. Maybe its the 'smoothest' feed feature that will allow more successful shots. I also wonder if it will have a DM?

However, the cartrige should make for some interesting moderate wildcats.

Re: 375 Ruger ?

It certainly doesn't take more than one properly placed bullet to dispatch an elephant. (Brain) Those results were from poor bullet placement.

I think the 375RUM hasn't done well mainly due to availability. If Ruger or Weatherby would chamber it in the M77 or Vangard and make it reasonably priced I would buy one.

That's right Roy, it gives us another case to play with. But
I do believe that if this case is promoted properly (part of the problem with other failures), since it offers more
than 375H&H performance in a std action it may do well. More
std. pricing will be avail. like the Ruger 77 Lam. or later maybe the Vanguard MOA, etc. The Rem has the H&H length action anyway, but many don't that can chamber this new round.

As far as the Elephant deal, I believe a bullet like the new 300 Gr. flat pt. TSX in the brain would have worked
just fine, many were killed with a 14" 375 JDJ with less fuss than these mentioned, something is wrong but I don't know the whole story.

But look at the Wildcat possibilities! Looks like a good
one for a 6.5 round shooting the A-Max or Wildcats.
