can a .375 factory round be fired (once) in a weapon chambered .375 H&H?
Your question is a little vague. You say a .375 factory round but you didn't say what the factory round specifically is, other than .375. If it's a .375H&H round then you should certainly be able to shoot it in a weapon chambered for the same, but I'm sure you knew that. If the factory round is something other than .375H&H, DO NOT put it in your .375H&H.
There are a few rifles calibers out there designed to handle rounds in multiple chamberings. For example I know you can fire a .458 Win Mag round in a rifle chambered for .458 Lott. That said I wouldn't put a .375RUM or .378 Weatherby in a .375H&H chamber. I don't think it could be done even if you tried. The .375H&H case tapers from wider to narrower from the rim to the neck, part of why it extracts so nicely. The RUM and Weatherby versions do not have this tapered design. Furthermore the RUM and Wby cases are wider overall than the widest point on the H&H case.
Again, with the info you provided my advice is DO NOT do this.
If it says .375 Ruger don't use that ammo either!
..all factory rounds are fired only once. If it's a .375 Holland and Holland factory round, then fire away. Anything else would be, methinks, rather reckless..
Hmmm... eh wot?
Only fire .375H&H ammo in a .375H&H.
If the rifle however is a .375 Ackley Improved it can fire .375H&H, .375 Weatherby or .375 Ackley Improved.
