    Whilst saving towards my potential future investment of a good bolt action, I will was thinking...for lighter skinned game-whitetail, antelope, and comparable species abroad...could a .270 or .243 bullet be saboted into a .375 cartridge? With a magnum capable chamber, the pressure to get it to speed would be easy. The other side...I would need a bulkier powder to fill the .375 case to 80% or so. Just an idea-there are a ton of expanding light game bullets out there-just NOT in .375. Rifling twist may also be an issue. The new 5 zero scopes are a great invention-allows a broader range if cartridges-and a step closer to a "one gun" mentality.

    I would just use a 250 grain .375 Barnes TTSX bullet for everything. Maybe paired up with a non-expanding bullet for the biggest and smallest.
    I would just use the 250 grain TTSX bullet only for everything unless I was going after an Elephant.
    After many years of testing and trying bullets both on the range and while hunting, I have found that KISS is by far the best approach when it comes to hunting.

    They've sold sub caliber ammo over the years Accuracy is the typical shortcoming in commercial sub caliber ammo.
