    375 Load Enquiry

    Could somebody please help with a Quickload calculation to give me an idea of starting and max loads with below components. Cartridge .375 H&H Magnum Bullet 300 Grain Barnes TXFB Powder Vitavourhi 150 Primer would be CCI Large Rifle Magnum and Winchester Brass. Currently using RL15 but would like the alternative. Cheers

    375 Load Enquiry

    Hi Srvet Thanks for the info. My rifle has a 24" barrel its a Winchester Safari Express. According to the Barnes load data my load using Reloader 15 seems to be giving better speeds from a load that is several grains away from max. Up to now I have only tried the rifle in practice and on paper. SA trip is off this year and given the right circumstances I may use it to cull the odd deer locally. Obliged

    cut and crown

    Have Jackson Rifles not already disproved the need for re-proofing on end of barrel work such as shortening -screw cutting - re-crowning. I know in our area a very well experienced gun-smith stopped sending such work to the proof-house.

    N150,N550,N160. 3006

    I am using N150 for 180grain Accubonds with good results. Same barrel length. Mind you its purely for stalking I load but they group reasonable and stuff goes dead quickly.

    Stock choice

    I am intrigued who are the "us" in your posts. Are you a company or some other form of business. Just asking so I can understand your posts we seem to have a group or something similar about them. With respect eddieb

    Swiss Load Data

    Hi Is the RS50 the nearest to Varget and RS62/H4350. Both of the Hodgon ones have been my go to powders for sometime. I was thinking of going back to N140 but lots of folks are talking about the RS brand as being a bit superior.

    Barnes 165 and Varget Help

    Help needed if possible. Looking for a load for Barnes 165grn TTSX bullets and Varget powder. Calibre 30.06 Sprg. I know its not on the recommended list by Barnes but according to its burn rate it doesn't look a lot different. Maybe I am missing something basic.

    Rifle stock

    The barrel channel look a bit wide for me initially. But all of the other benefits of the stock outweighed that. Still everybody to their own,

    Extra low 30mm rings

    I have some Talley Rings on a Tikka that go straight on no bases needed and I am sure they do low rings plus they come with screws. You try try optics warehouse.
  23. Someone on this forum sold a similar product a few years back. I had one and it worked fine, then I somehow managed to lose that bipod. They were obviously copies but were at a very reasonable price, Wish I could get another
