    Default 375 HH Varget Loads Chrony'd

    Thought I would share for anyone's interest Chrony'd some 375 Holland and Holland Handloads yesterday...

    Browning A-Bolt Stalker, W/Boss. Birchwood, 10/20/2007. ~35 deg F.

    67.0g Varget, 300gr Hornady RN
    2199*
    2248
    2222
    2267
    2255
    (*First shot from cold clean bbl)

    70.0g Varget, 270gr Barnes TSX
    2539
    2571
    2574
    2571
    2579

    Accuracy with the 300gr was quite good. Next time out I will try some RL15.

    If and when you get to 4350 powder you might find it to work out better than all the others. At least that has been my findings with the .375 H&H.

    Default .375 Loading

    You Might Try H414, It Works Very Well In Every Gun We Have Worked With Shooting 270 Gr Tsx's And 300 Gr Swifts. Most All Will Shoot Sub 1" Groups, And Velocity Is Ectremely Good.

    I have settled on just one load for all my old model 70's and these old Mauser's I have. That work for me and give me good accuracy in all of these rifles. That does not mean this load works for everybody. So approach with caution and work up carefully, insure your rifle is in good condition. You know all the usual lawyer crap!

    Powder> 4350, all brands.

    Bullet> 270 grain Woodleigh

    Primer> WINCHESTER LR

    Powder charge> 76 grains.

    I have not had any shots that I would take at over 200 yards, there for I am not looking to get the last bit of speed out of anything I shoot.

    Please remember that I don't hunt in warm weather here in Our Alaska either. These loads prove vary safe in all my rifles. I don't believe I've ever shot them in temps above 60 degs f.

    Please use caution with this or any other loading data you get from any source.

    I use RL15 in my 375 and have great accuracy with it and Barnes 300gr TSX.

    I'll be keeping an eye out for the chrono info for RL15

    Default For What It Is Worth.

    I have a weatherby and cz-550. Both like 72.5 gr of IMR 4064 and any 270 bullet. Both also like 80 gr. of N160 with Horndy 300 roundnose or spitzer. Hope this helps and good shooting. Work up to these loads.

    Default 375 Chrony readings

    I have not tried varget yet, but here are some of my findings from the chrono and 375.

    All reading were taken at 15 ft from M70 w/24" barrel.

    RL 15
    73 grains w/ 260 Nosler Part - 2750 (accurate)
    74 grains w/ 270 TSX - 2750
    67 grains w/ 300 Nosler Part - 2425
    68 grains w/ 300 Hornady BTSP - 2550 (MAX load)

    H414
    75 grains w/ 300 Sierra GK - 2550

    WW760
    76 grains w/ 300 Sierra GK - 2500
    76 grains w/ 300 Hornady BTSP - 2500
    76 grains w/ 300 Hornady RN - 2450 (accurate)
    76 grains w/ 300 Nosler Part - 2450

    H4350
    75 grains w/ 300 Hornady RN - 2525 (accurate)

    IMR 4064
    71 grains w/ 270 TSX - 2650

    IMR4350
    75 grains w/ 300 Hornady BTSP - 2525

    RL seems a bit fast for the 300's but worked real well in the 260-270 grain bullets. H4350 and WW760 seem to work best with the 300 grain bullets.

    Default My hand loads

    71 grains of RL15 with a 270 grain Barns X is the perfect combination for my Mod. 70
