    .375 Ruger Velocity 20" vs 23"

    I loaded up six rounds, same as I used to test my Alaskan before. 300 grain TSX over 69gr of RL15. You gain 22.6 fps per inch. African - 2442 Alaskan - 2374 I'm pretty sick, that I traded for an African to gain 68 fps

    .375 Ruger, 300gr TSX and IMR4350

    Its the fastest listed powder for a Nosler 300gr, so I decided to try it with the Barnes TSX. Eve at 78 grains, I cant get the bullet seated to 3.30, it keeps pushing back out. 3.345 is the shortest I can get it to stay. Funny though, because you can still hear the powder shake inside. Yet...

    Want To Buy .375 Ruger Brass

    My wife "helped" me put my brass away, back before I was setup to reload again. Now I have 60 pieces misplaced lol So I need a few to work with until I find the others.

    What do you make of this?

    I run a camera down my .375 Ruger barrel. I'm trying to figure out if this is a crack, hair, or a scratch.

    Is Solid bullets the way to go in a .375 ?

    Seems like the payoff would be worth it. Take out both shoulders and the heart at the same time. You guys tell me why you do use solids or why you don't use solids. There are no multiple tiers of dead. :)

    Who would by .375 Ruger Ammunition by Barnes?

    I've been talking to Barnes, and I asked about loaded ammo for the .375 Ruger. They asked me if anyone else would want it. So I will make this a poll. Seeing that I haven't been able to get back to reloading yet, I would appreciate something other than Hornady ammo.

    Name the cartridges game: Rimmed Edition

    Just for fun this time, but hey, again it gives me a chance to play with my collection. Plus, people said this was a fun challenge. I believe no one will get all of these, I tried to make it hard. So, what are they?

    Name the cartridges game

    I rarely have a reason to get my cartridge collection out. Usually it's only when someone asks "what does a .990 T-Rex look like beside a 20mm" or something like that lol So I figured I'd have some fun. My friend Jeff, that owns Tango Down, had given me a dozen ink pens/stylus. So the first...

    Scope for a .375 Ruger

    I'm looking at the Vortex Viper 1-4x24, but also wondering if a quality red dot would be better. What are your thoughts fellas?

    Here is my .375

    This is the pics he sent me. I ran the serial number and it's a 2007 model. I really dig the DiamondBlack finish. Is there any problems with these early examples I need to ask about before it ships?

    Hornady 250 GMX in a .375 Ruger

    Has anyone used the Outfitter ammo from Hornady in their .375 Ruger or H&H ? I'm curious how the 250 grain GMX works on Whitetail up to Elk, Moose, and Brownies. Would it be suitable for Plains game on the Dark Continent, or would a 300gr Barnes TTSX be better? Thanks!

    Greetings from Virginia

    Found this site while reading up on the .375 Ruger. I've always wanted one, and I'm finally getting one. It's a 2007 Ruger Alaskan with the DiamondBlack finish. I've got a friend who is a PH in South Africa, and he wants me to come hunting with him, so I'm getting ready. The .375 will be my do...
