I have not tried Sierra before but I hear good things about them. Good luck this fall!
I have shot all kinds of bullet mfg's and weights out of my 375H&H just haven't had the opportunity to hunt anything larger than groundhogs. 250gr Sierra's are excellent for accuracy. Personally I have talked to individuals and read articles on Hornady Interbond bullets. General consensus seems to be that they have disappointed more than they have been liked. Of course you will have those who disagree but just going by general consensus. Barnes seem to be the bullet of choice for quite a few. Haven't had the opportunity to use them myself. I would agree that the Woodleighs, and Nosler Partitions are a great choice of bullet.

The Sierra bullets would be excellent for plains game, I'd use them for moose.

While I have to admit I have not had the opportunity to hunt game with my 375 yet, I have played around with plenty of weights and powders and H4895 works on loads under 300grs, for accuracy I can't say enough good things about 300gr Sierra's behind 78Gr of Win 760 measuring a touch over 2600fps out of my Whitworth

With the Win 760 have you noticed any problems with outside temperatures causing pressure problems. I was told by a person who reloads and shoots about 300 rounds a weekend during the summer that he had noticeable over pressure evidence to his casing when he tried the Win powders on very hot days.
Just curious if you have noticed that as he strongly recommended that I shy away from the Win760 for my 375 when I was working up a load for Africa.

250gr TTSX loaded with H4895. Flat shooting, low recoil, stable and consistent at all temperatures, and a downright DEADLY combination of bullet and powder for the 375.

Try the Speer 235gr, semi-spitzer at 2600fps. Works well on any big game. You can drive them to 2900fps but they won't stay together.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
