# Thread: bullet drop on a 375H&H

1. ## bullet drop on a 375H&H

I have a A-Bolt in 375 H&H w/ a24" barrel and shoot Fed. perm., 300gr noslers. I've only shot it at 100yrd range. Does any body have a ruff bullet drop from a zero at 100 yrds. for 200 and 300 yards? Or where does your rifle hit from what ever yardage you have it zeroed for. Thanks in advance.

2. ## 375 traj.

A few assumptions have to be made but here goes some ruff numbers

100 = 0
200 = -5.7"
300 = -20.2"

Norma has a good calculator but quit supporting the English version- ya!
But here's a link to a pretty good calculator

3. from federal site

100--0
200--5.1
300--17.7

4. My .375 H&H, when I had it, shot 270 grain bullets with almost exactly the same trajectory as a 180 grain bullet out of my 30-06.

A 2" high zero at 100 yards left me about 8" low at 300.

Very true and a good place to sight in a 375 when used as a general purpose, multi-tasking rifle.

It all comes down to velocity and the BC of the bullet, and of course the initial zero. I have a well used 375 Sako that shoots 270's at 2750 and 300 at 2570. I sight the 270 grains in 2" high at a hundred for that 30-06 trajectory and the 300 grains bullet is zeroed at 100. Yes I've swapped ammo in the field to make the 300 plus yard shot with the 270 grainers and hunt the heavies up close with the 300 grain load. Works like a champ.

6. Good thoughts Murphy. I never got to know my .375 like that. I'm very likely to get another one in the near future...I miss that rifle.

can easily find at gunsandammo.com, or any sight that has ballistics, can even just google ballistics tables 375

8. That JBM small arms ballistic site looks good, here's another online ballistics calc
