    I acquired a new Remington 700 in .375 H&H that was built by a guy named Frank Wells out of AZ. My dad picked it up in an estate sale and didn't really need/want it so I got it from him. It has a Douglas sporter barrel, action was blue printed and trued by Frank Wells, polished factory trigger, McMillan Mtn. Rifle stock, and a Leupold VXIII 1.5-5x20. I am looking to do some reloading for it start with some 250gr. Game Kings but thought I would pull from the wisdom here first. If you have any load work that you'd be willing to share, please let me know. I have only loaded up to my 7mag so am not sure on the bigger caliber stuff. Thanks a ton!

    The 375 is a great little round. I've had one in my gun cabinet for years. I like rl15, 4350, and I 4320 for it but other powders work well too. Just think of it like a big bore 308/06 powder selection wise and you will do well. I've got a lightweight rem700 with a factory bbl. and a 6x Nikon on top.

    My current load is the 300 tsx with 70.0 I 4320 in rem brass with a mag primer. 2550 fps and moa at 100.
    I also use the 300 dgs with 78 I 4350 and a mag primer.
    The 260 nos ab sings well on 72.0 I 4320, so I suppose the 250 sierra would do similar.
    Expect 2800 fps or so on mid weight pills (250'ish) in this cal, and 2600 fps or so with 300's.

    Reloader 15 and Nosler 260gr Accubond really works good in the 375 HH
