    I picked up 100 325gr hard cast gas checked bullets off of gunbroker to try out in my 375 H&H. im hoping you guys/girls could suggest some starting loads for these within my very limited powder selection.

    all I have available to me at the moment is:

    - W760
    - IMR 4064
    - IMR 4350
    - IMR 7828

    im open to other powder ideas but its unlikely ill be able to find them as store shelves are still empty around here.

    thank you

    You can make any of those work, you just need to be mindful that the bullet will most likely not want to be driven much past 2,000 fps (lots of variables will determine the actual limit).

    Are these just for plinking, or do you plan to hunt with them?

    I have a Lyman 49th at the house. I will pm you some starting loads tonight.

    Too bad you don't have powder in the Unique to Reloader 7 range.

    You aren't near Houston are you?

    I checked cast data in two different manuals.

    Reloader 7 was the slowest powder listed.
