  • 375 bullit help

    I was given about 4 , 375 bullets that look like they where made on a Lathe and have a T on the base , any idea?

    Is it a round nose, boat tail, flat base?

    How much does it weigh?

    Is it a solid or copper and lead?

    Can you take a picture and post it?

      Jack Carter's Trophy Bonded Bear claw bullets (or Sledge Hammer solids). The soft points are solid copper base with a lead core bonded to the front half, the solids are solid copper alloy. These bulets are now made by Speer. (TBBC)
      Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

          No need, sounds like Murphy has it dialed in.

                I beleive those look like the 240 grain TBBC's and old Jack Carter bullets at that. They aren't lathe turned just solid billets of copper hardened and the nose section is CNC'd out then poured with an alloyed lead that is quite hard, it is essentially soldered to the copper nose cavity, thus the name trophy BONDED.

                If those are the 240's he intended them to be a leopard bullet but they are too tough for a leopard except at the highest velocity. A rapid expander is the best for the spotted kitty cats. I have some of the 240 grain TBBC's in 375. They make a good bullet for the occasional long shot with the 375 H&H. Can you weigh those and lets us know what they weigh. That bullet is long discontinued if it is the 375 240 grain.

                      Oh, I've stuffed a bullet or two in my time. Thanks for the encouragement guys. You've gotta sleep pretty late to get a head of ol' Murphy.

                        Hey here's a quick question. Whose bullet has a 'K' on the base.

                        This combat flyer distress symbol, 'K' with feet (walking K) to indicate the direction of travel. (That information was classified top secret about 40 years ago so don't spread it around.)

                        Answers:

                        A: Bullets made by former combat flyer (Vietnam era) Don Allen.
                        B: Bullets made by Karl and Mike in Douglas, Alaska.
                        C: Bullets made by Captain Kirk.
                        D: Bullets made by Navy fighter pilot (Vietnam era) Ray Zincain.

                          I'm leaning towards (D) Ray Zincain, just a little more than a WAG but not willing to put money on it.
