Thanks for your time and write up on this.
I have both the earliest versions of the Alaskan and African in 375 Ruger.
The Alaskan, I have hunted with quite a bit, killed a couple of moose with it.
The African, I have only fired 3 shots in it. Just to compare fired brass to another rifle that I had re-barrel’d to 375 Ruger.
One of these days, I will get around to making the time chronographing my loads. The 270 grain TSX have grouped excellent to outstanding in 3 rifles that I have loaded it in.

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
