    Howdy,

    Been using R15 74 grains, 270gr TSX Great accuracy, but It gives me a sticky bolt all the way back to 69 grains the cases show good.
    Shot a couple boxes of the new hornady 270 grain superformance and they chambered great and were as accurate, took one apart and there is 80 grains of a powder I wish I knew what it was. They are 125 fps quicker than the R15 load.
    Read a load on H4350 and they show 78-83 grains and 100 fps slower, havn't tryed it personally.
    It also appears that they will have to be crimped unless there is another trick, put three in the chamber shot a group and all 3 decreased in total length twice.
    Going after a brownie in september, this is serious business :D
    Thanks for any imput!
    Jeff~

    Start lower in your gun and work up like I did! My 375 Ruger has a 24" barrel and may be faster than yours.
