I saw some relatively inexpensive .375 H&H ammo at Cheaper Than Dirt & thought I'd pick up a few boxes. Going on a boar hunt in Central Texas in March and wanted to give the new Min Mod 70 a feel; I figured that if I started hunting with it now I'll be more comfortable and familiar with it when it comes time for a Buffalo.

.375 H&H 285gr Grand Slam

Anyhows, anyone have any experience with this company? "Bitterroot Valley Ammunition?"

Looks like a 285gr Grand Slam at about 2650fps. Seems like a decent load for practice and fodder (certainly will be enough for hogs).

They are a good small company putting out very good ammo. I have not shot the load you mention. But I have some 285 Grand Slams for my 375 H&H and think they are a good cape buffalo load. Not to many people use them because of Nosler and Hornady...but Speer Grand Slam bullets are very good.

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

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
