375 Load Enquiry

Recommended Posts

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

Hi

I have done and there is a load for Swift A Frame at that bullet weight but as Barnes do not list any of the Vit powders in their data i was hoping someone could run it on Quickload.

Here you go, it is based on the default data off QL so bear that in mind. As always start low and work up, may not be safe in your rifle etc.....

I assumed a 25 inch barrel as on a CZ 550. Dont know what the case capacity of Winchester cases are in comparison to the QL default case capacity.

Hope this helps

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
