    Does anyone have any experience with the cutting edge 320 grain 375 cal bullet? I'm thinking about ordering some and giving them a whirl. As you know they aren't free ($107.64 for 50) so the more information I can scrounge up the better. Of course letting them rip out of my 375 RUM.

    Thanks for all your help.

    No experience yet. . . .but . . .

    Had a long talk with the boss man up there. His recommendation was to go with the MT, non-hollow point, bullet, to mess with. 2 grains heavier otherwise exactly the same as the MTH offering.

    I'm starting with the 352 as I have a few more grains of powder capacity than the RUM.

    If that works well I'll give the 375 a go.

    If they do as I expect they will, I'll then move to the hunting offerings.

    Gonna be a fun winter.

    From my studies I don't think you will have much of a risk involved….

    I've heard tons of good things about them. I've also heard the banter that could be had with any bullet.

    I'm going for it.

    That's awesome Roy!! Riley mentioned these bullets awhile back but we decided it would be a cheaper route to play with the Accubonds first. However, .4 isn't the worst bc for the 375, but I wanted more. Are the 352's a repeater or a single feed?

    I have used the ceb 330 grn in my 375 rum improved and they are a very good bullet. They killed a mule deer at 75 yards with a very impressive bullet path, high shoulder shot thru the backstrap with no bloodshot meat. 1200 yard shot on a rock with 2 1/2 feet of windage with a crosswind so strong you would loose your balance in it.

    Ok...Outlaw pushed me over the edge :D. I'm going to score a box of 320 ceb's and let them fly. I will send the results as soon as the holidays come and my surgery schedule slows down. I then should have time to do some testing. Until then, I'm still interested in peoples experiences with these bullets.

    Roy,

    Riley gets his drivers license on Friday the 13th....(Fitting I know!!):D:D. I told him that if I spent the money for the bullets, he had to come over and help me load them. They were his idea anyway. Let me know how you come out with the 352 grainers.

    Glad to help! :cool: That whole peer pressure thing always got me too. I will be anxiously awaiting your report, that could be a great combination.

    Riley in a vehicle... can he see over the steering wheel? :D Sorry little bro.
    Kinda odd that he gets his license on the 2nd Friday the 13th of the year... bad juju:cool:

    Funny Jayson didnt mention its a 9 hour round trip drive, 580 miles round trip/ 23 mph gallon = 25.2 gallons of gas. x $3.13= $80. Its gonna cost me as much to drive there and back as it is going to cost you in bullets!!

    T, that was funny, made me laugh, but ya, i can see over the steering wheel of my grand prix. :cool: LOL

    I figure they're single shot as the action is a Bat single shot……

    They about as long as a short fishin' pole. :)

    I realize this is yet another old thread, but I have to ask how those 320's turned out as I've been researching them, and they seem like the cherry on top. It seems I am following in other's footsteps going down the 375 RUM rabbit hole, and I'm playing catch up.

    Thanks,
    GP

    I couldn't get the 320's to shoot the way I wanted them too. They were very inconsistent. The bullet itself is very well made. I found that the "seal-tite" ridge was just that...super tight. I almost wrecked a grip-n-pull trying to get them out. My go too now is the 350 smk. They are so extremely accurate and they are devastating on game.

    Sad about the 320's, was hoping they were a sweet spot (might still try them to see if my barrel likes them). What's your loads look like in the 350 SMK's? [EDIT: score! Just found some of those 350's online and ordered a box.]

    Reloader 26 is a crazy good powder for the 375 rum. I can't exactly remember the grains but I'll let you know tomorrow when I load some up. It was so deadly that I shot all my deer and elk with it. It's just a tad longer than factory magazine so I have to feed them single. Doesn't matter though cause it only takes one with this combo. Here's a picture from a group at 200 yards with the 350 SMK.
