Re: 375 ruger bullet choice
If I were using the accubond, I'd go with the 300. I've read too many questionable things about the lighter 338 and 375 accubonds. Mainly that they may not penetrate enough because of over expansion.
On the other hand, I'd have no problem with the 270 gn TSX. In fact that would be my first choice if it were accurate in the chosen rifle.
But many of the other mentioned bullets like North Fork, GS, Swift A-Frame, or the good ole Nosler partition are just as good or better. I'd use a 300 gn in each except the GS and TSX. Really don't think it is necessary there.
The trouble with the 300 gn GS HV is it needs a 12 or faster twist when used for dangerous game at close range. I'm not sure what the 300 TSX needs to reach a stability factor of 1.6. But A fast twist is best to keep those long bullets stable on impact.
At least that's what would make me most comfortable.
