    Default Help with a load for 375 H&H

    I have a box of 270 gr. hornady for my 375. I haven't been able to find a load for them in any of my reloading books using RL-15. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    I find it odd that no one has answered this question yet, so many 375H&H shooters up there.

    The 8th edition Hornady manual has the data on page 699.

    24" barrel
    1:12 twist
    case trim 2.840, Winchester
    WLRM Winchester

    270gr #3711 SP-RP
    COL 3.570

    RL-15 62.7gr - 74.3gr
    2300fps - 2700fps

    270gr #3715 RN
    COL 3.605

    RL-15 62.7gr - 74.3gr
    2300fps - 2700fps

    yeah, I think my load is right at 75 gr. Mind you that is above the published data, however I have nil pressure signs on the brass or primers and my velocity is still under 2700 fps. I am betting that once you get the velocity you want with that load, that you will be really pleased with the accuracy! for some reason those 270 gr round nose Hornady bullets just shoot awsome out of my rifle! but I dont think they make the 270 RN any more, so dont shoot them all up!
