    load information needed for .375 winchester using 350 lead bullet

    I ended up with some 350 grain lead bullets that i want to use in a .375 winchester just can't seem to find any load data. Any help would be great.
    thanks

    I'm not saying this is the only way, or even the best way; but if it were me doing this, I would take a good hard look at data for a single shot .38-55.

    I know I have seen data for lead bullets in the 325-330 grain range, not sure about 350.

    Overall length will probably be too long to cycle through a lever action, so unless you are lucky enough to have a Ruger #3, it may not work.

    Actually, Robert, I sold him an amazing little Ruger #3 in .375 Winchester. He's a lucky guy!!
    I never got the chance to shoot it, so I'm not going to be any help, though.

    I see said the blind man...

    I thought long and hard about that #3 when it was in S&S, decided to stick with my Marlin 336CB in .38-55. It evens out though, I recently got a #3 in .22 Hornet.

    I too thought about that #3 when it was for sale but I really wanted a Winchester Big Bore, which I just got. I now have the availability of getting a #3 again. Decisions, decisions!

    the .375 winchester should have come out with a 24 or 26 inch barrel, it is a totally different firearm with that long tube
