  • 375 h&h + barnes= wow!!!

    Always shot the 260 accubonds but thought they opened up too much this past fall so I did some load development with the 270 gain Barnes TSX's and all I can say is WOW!!!! These are the most accurate shooting bullets I have put through the old H&H.

    My final load I settled on was 76.5 of RL 15 pushing the bullet to an average of 2812 FPS. I shot 3 different 5 shot groups in less than 3/4" at 100 yards. 3 shots all stayed in an 1" at 200. Plenty good for HOT 375 H&H LOADS!!!(Good for ANY 375 LOADS!!)

    Lastly I took 3 milk jugs and placed them at 300, 325, and 350 (my limit shooting distance with the .375) and went 3 for 3. The 350 shot, I held approx.4-6" over the jug and it struck almost in the middle.

    Talk about a great new load...can't wait till April 15th and to see if we can try this new load out on an Idaho Spring Blackie.

    You bet it's a great load for a great old caliber. My load is very similar to yours, 270grTSX pushed by 76grns of RL-15. It is very accurate out of my rifle as well, and I've shot several grizzlies and quite a few moose with it...very effective.

          O.K., That Did It! I am going to give this a try.

          I shoot a Remington SS model 700 .375 H & H, with the factory synthetic stock. I have owned it for about ten years, and during a long and bruising load development period, I finally found a load that was accurate, and matched up with factory load velocity. That was 9 years ago, and lately I have been tempted to try the TSX bullets, but haven't gotten around to it. I know a store that has a fair deal on the TSX 270's, so I am going over there tomorrow, and then I will load some up and see if I can get it to shoot them like yours is doing. Thanks for sharing the load data.
          Best Regards,
          Jim
