Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

I have owned 2 375 ultras, the first was poorly put together in my inexperience and was nothing but a headache. I now have another and love it. I feel pretty safe behind it.

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

I just finished my 500 A Square and it is shooting 300 grain barnes original with 120.0 grains of h4198 over 3450 fps. I have some 350 grain CEB Non Con bullets on the way. We just put our bait out 3 days ago. I am going to check it tomorrow and maybe hunt over it if it has been hit. Ross

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

Is there anywhere where its legal to use a BMG?You could throw 750s at 3000+ fps with an improved BMG. Obviously its not needed to get the job done but, theres really no such thing as overkill when facing down a beast that could just as easily kill you. Anyone ever take any BIG game with a .50BMG and 750 AMAXs?

Definitely could be wrong there. I have never shot the 375 Wby, only the 378.
The 375 Whby. Is one of the greatest rounds ever invented, no slammed againts those of you who shoot the 375 Ackley,Mashburn,OKH. The only reason R.W.came out with the 378 was few people bought his ammo. They fireformed H+H ammo in the Whby chamber and reloaded.

I had a 500 A-Square. It was not bad.

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

I just finished a 500 Weatherby. The case is a 460 Weatherby necked up to take the 500 smith and wesson bullets. I loaded 125 grains of R19 and a 300 grain flex tip Hornady and it shot 3 shots at 100 yards under 3/8" I can't wait to use it and the A Square on a spring bear.
