375 Ruger reloading info

b*arhunter338-06 said: I just bought a Ruger in 375 ruger. Would like to hear what you have for reloading info. I am thinking of the 260gr Accubonds or the Barns 270gr tsx.

S*perCub said: Don't overlook the Hornady 270gr SP for range blasting and hunting as well. I'd use them in my 375, but it likes the 260gr Nosler ABs better. .

G*tehouse said: I use 84gr H 4350 for the 260 AB (2750fps) and 83.5gr H4350 for the 270gr TSX (2735fps) Both loads shoot small cloverleaf groups.

All I am going to do with that load is shoot milk jugs and bang 8" gongs from 25 yards out to 400 yards with it, I don't care if they all land in the same hole.:) I tried out the 260gr Accubond load that had shot so well when the Hogue Stock was installed, and it did pretty much a repeat performance of the original groups: http://usera.imagecave.com/chef/Rifle/Leopardhide275-copy.jpg

B*omer said: In attempting to get the velocity with we wanted (2700 fps) from 260 gr ABs in my pal's .375 Ruger Alaskan, I didn't have much success with H-4350 and Winchester 760 was equally disappointing producing a velocity of 2600 before high pressure was observed. We then tried Re-19 and 90 grs broke 2800 fps, but required a drop tube which I have little patience for. The 89 grs load made the target velocity all right, but still required a drop tube. Finally I ordered some Hybrid 100V and liked it so much it has become my go to powder, not only in the Ruger, but also for my .375 Ultra and the .30/06. We settled on 86.0 grs of Hybrid 100V which drove the 260 gr AB at 2734 (5 degrees C, at sea level) and it did not require a drop tube to charge the cases. Accuracy was .75 MOA for 3 shots from prone.
