Looking for 375 H&H Loads

I'm new to the forum and I thought I may as well dip into the well of knowledge right off the bat. I just bought a Win M70 in 375 H&H and would like to work up some loads for it. I will be shooting 270 gr Speer BTSP and will be pushing it with RL 15. It seems like all the literature shows it at 2700 +/- which is right where I want it. What kind of info have you got?

Welcome to the site. Let me be the first to impart knowledge on you. That's gonna hurt like hell to shoot! Big smile

Allright, I've never shot one. Maybe one of our Africa guy's will be around.

It's a good idea to buy a reloading manual for anything you plan to reload. The load data is published by many powder, bullet, and ammo maker companies. Speer, Hornady, IMR, Hodgdon, etc.

Nope they are a kitten, fun to shoot and always a great conversation piece at any campfire. You will enjoy the rifle. I don't have one, but my hunting partner does and I bum it all the time to shoot.

Looking for 375 H&H Loads

I have and shoot a .375 H&H and I have to say is pretty easy to shoot. I have an Encore rifle with heavy barrel and muzzle tamer. It weighs about 9 lbs and shoots like a 30-06. The best thing you can do is add a Simms Limbsaver recoil pad. It's unbelievable how effective it is.

I use the same bullet loaded over 70 gr of IMR 4064 and the recoil isn't bad.

Looking for 375 H&H Loads

I find a good source of reloading data can be had at the "AmmoGuide Interactive' website. You must be a member (Less than $20) to get the deails of reloading data.
I just looked at the data listed for the .375 H&H,it showed data from 200 gr. to 350 gr. bullets. For 270 gr. it showed loads from 2300 fps. to almost 2800 fps@ 4692 ft.lbs. of energy.
I read an article years ago on how to build a ".375 improved",the ballistic data was very impressive! Thumbs up
If you are interested in some very hot loads for a given calibre,this is a good place to look.
Obviously hot loads are for experienced reloaders and should be carefully "worked up to."
