    Default F.M.C Bullets

    Winchester Super X 300 gr. F.M.C. 375HH Mag
    Winchester super X 300 gr silvertip 375 HH Mag

    I bought these bullets from another forum member. I bought them for my new gun. I figured if there no good to hunt with I would just use them for target practice and save the brass for reloading.


    I know it is older Winchester ammo, and I have shot a few moose with Winchester 220 gr silvertips before, so I know they are OK to hunt with.

    My question is are the full metal case any good. I think they are used for African big game. Would a guy use them for moose or bear?


    Thanks

    I will trade you FEDERAL .375 H&H "PREMIUM Safari" ammo for your factory FMC .375 H&H. Or other ammo, but don't waste the FMC ammo plinking. I have about 400 rounds of NEW Factory .375 H&H available for sale or trade.

    Default FMC

    There were different manufacturers of FMC bullets for Western/Winchester some of the bullets were of exceptional quality (giving high penetration) while others performed like a modern premium expanding round. These were the observations of hunters that used them in Africa on extreme large game.
    As for use in Alaska they'll do fine if you desire to use a FMC as a back up on heavy animals; regardless of which bullet you have.
    The ones that tended to expand were said to have a round nosed flat point appearence.

    375 is a great well balanced caliber; Regardless of which origin it is.
