Another fine performance - .375 Rgr/270 TSX
Here is another testimonial on how well My 375 Ruger performs with the 270 grain TSX. I have been loading it with 74.5 grains of RL15 and pushing it to around 2750 fps. This combo has been lights out for everything I have taken with it. Much like my Valdez Black Bear earlier this spring, this Brownie fell to one well placed shot. Bullet cleanly passed through with very little hide damage.
Nice bear Brent. Keep the testimonials coming.

Got some of those pills loaded up for my .375-338.
Need to get to the range and dial in my iron/aperature sights.
Using the same powder, but I have a smaller case. I should be able to get 2,700 fps I think.
My first handloads
Got my dies a couple days ago. I loaded out of the barnes book.
CCI 250 magnum primer (not the barnes specified primer)
79 grains of IMR 4007ssc
270 grain triple shock3.369 coal.
my rifle is 3.474 to the lands.
I got 1 inch groups at 100 yards with this.
There was absolutley no high pressure sign either
Im going try try to seat a little deeper so I get a better crimp on the bullet. Right now im barely hanging on to the edge of the bullet where it meets the groove.(well you know what I mean) It might be possible for the bullet to squish out the way it is now. My dummy round I made failed the pry it loose with your fingers test. And something that I really like was the recoil was a lot less than the factory 300 grain roundnose. And There was a lot less barrel heat than the regular hornady stuff. Only thing this I dont own a chronograph so dont know that part of the mix.
Nice! The 270gr TSX puts the hurt on critters, no doubt. It's my favorite hunting bullet in the .375H&H.
