    Im fairly new reloading but wish to have a good starting point for my .375 RUM and heavier 350gr smk bullets.

    does anyone have a good load that i could start with? I open to suggestions and have read Retumbo is one of the best for these larger magnums.

    I have Retumbo,H4350 and H4831SC avalible to me.

    Any help for overall cartridge length and power weight would be really helpful. Thanks!

    Hot loads? Sorry my friend, you are on your own for that one. Get a loading manual, follow it's guide lines, they all have good loads you can start with.

    Move slowly until you learn what you're doing and stay safe. IF you're a fast learner, in a few years you might be ready to start working toward HOT loads but most of us never do that. (I think it's something about intelligence and maturity.)

    Each rifle is an individual and hot loading for each requires individual work up...by people who know what they are doing, not following some anonimus suggestion on a web site.
