View Full Version : Anyone shoot cast in 375 H&H

Hey guys, I've got a Rem 700 Classic in 375 H&H that I thought I'd like to try some cast bullets with. I bought this gun with hopes of someday making it to the "Dark Continent" for Cape Buffalo, but don't know if that will ever come to pass. I also would like to try it on Moose or Elk but then again time and money seem to slip by. In the meantime I've shot it with 250-270gr J bullets at around 2500 fps just to take it out of the safe and play with it once in a while. No scope on it yet but it is an accurate rifle. So what say ye ? Anyone shoot some mild mannered loads in one of these...

218bee: Suggest you do a search here on the board for 375H&H,for a more comprehensive array.. I use Lyman 37583 over 13 gr of Red Dot for pot shooting small game & forest "chicken"..It's plain base ,so inexpensive and adequately accurate for intended purpose..Moving up in power & Expense,lyman 375 449 with gas check, 33 gr IMR 4198 (not into the new label cans yet)or 40 gr #3031, ..Either is about equiv.to the old 38/55 "High Speed"factory load.. Bullshop has a good selections of boolits for the .375's , including at least one for serious locomotive stopping..No doubt there other good commercial #'s ,too...enjoy...Onceabull

I've used 375449 with 31grs 4198 and a dacron filler.
It has shot ten into one hole at fifty yards.
BTW, this was from a Ruger #1.

I use the Lyman 375449 GC bullet which casts to 286 gr in WW for me and Carnauba Red lube. I drive it with 40.0 gr XMR 5744 and WLR primers. See little to no metal fouling with this load. Rifle is a Win M70 SS Classic on an HS Precision stock. Rifle has been to Africa and my load for that is a 300 gr Barnes TSX driven by 68.0 gr of RL-15 for 2604 fps.
Groups with the cast load are reasonable for practice on paper plates. Can never get enough of that!

I've been running the Lyman 375248 and either Unique or 2400 lately. I'm going to switch to a gas check design soon. Some links I like:
