    A very popular option is to get a Marlin 336 and send it off to JES for a rebore that takes a 38-55 or a 375. His rebores are supposed to be 376 and take about anything available for the 38 bore. Barnes is starting to offer their OS 38-55 bullets in 375 and 377 diameter. And there is another maker of J bullets people are happy with Vollmer Bullets. Lead bullets are also available as are molds. I like the Lee 250 grain mild and the Lyman 264 with gas check. For close and dirty work the Lyman gas check mold would be the ideal.

    I don't know if a standard 94 action would take the 375 but many were made in 38-55. I believe the Big Bores were beefed up actions. I shoot the 38-55 quite a bit and enjoy the caliber. The Barnes OS bullets were effective on deer.

    Another source for jacketed for the 375 Winchester is Hawk Bullets.

    .356 is very close to the older but effective 348 cartridge. A very good choice for game larger than deer.
