    I have a Rem XCR II in 375 Weatherby and have been thinking about it. I've loaded the non-HD versions to 2550 fps but haven't shot any game with them, that's a little fast for their non-HD design. Haven't heard many reports about the 350g HD version.

    Thanks!

    Depends on what you'll use them on.Worked just fine on water buffalo out of a 378 @
    2810 fps.Ranges were 30 - 90 yards. Worked okay on rear end shots, would anchor them enough for a finisher. Side on they would lump up under opposite shoulder.

    Brown bear mainly. I've had good luck with 300g A-Frames at 2700 fps thought I might try them.

    If you find that the swifts work ok , use them. The woodleighs won't perform any better or worse , & the swifts will definitely shoot flatter.

    The 300g A-Frames at 2700 fps work fabulously. Here's one that traversed an 8'6" brown bear diagonally from a range of 13 yards, still weighs 299.5 grains.

    Was talking to a bloke at the grocery shop a couple of hours ago, asking him what projectiles he was running through the .375H&H he bought from me. He’s using these big Woodleigh 350 grain HD RNSNs and says they’re emphatic on buffalo. Showed me a picture of the latest bull shot, and it was tremendous, and sank absolutely devastated upon being hit.
