    Default Savage 116 in 375 Ruger

    I recently purchased a Savage 116 FCSS with a 22 inch barrel. Can anyone help with a accurate handload with a 270, 235 and 260 grain bullet for this rifle.

    Thanks
    Jim

    I use 75 gr RL15 for either 260 Accubonds or various 270's. Not real hot but good load in my Ruger 77 African

    My load is 73.5 gr. RL15, Barnes 270 gr. TSX, and a Federal GM 215M. This load is unbelievably accurate for me!
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    72.5 gr. of 4064, CCI 250, and any 270 will do well in most 375's.

    My .375 h&h has loved 4064 and bullets from 225 to 300, 250gr TTSX and Sierra SP have been most accurate.
