    The Swift manual has published loads for the 375 Ruger. It's a nice reference piece and I'd recommend obtaining a copy (not to mention that I'm a reloading manual addict...have almost all of them, several versions of some accumulated throughout the years).

    Swift have very kindly helped me with some data, living in the UK means even some manuals aren't easily available.

    Very nice indeed! How long have you been shooting your 06 with the suppressor? It looks good on your rifle.

    This is my 3rd season with it. Yesterday I had it on my new 6.5 Creedmoor at the range, it makes it a real pleasure to shoot. Thanks!

    Took the Guide Gun back to Wyoming this fall and it did very well. ukhunter used it to take his antelope and I used it to take my antelope and my mule deer. This year I switched from 165 gr. bullets to 150 gr. bullets, Hornady Interlocks were my choice of bullet and they performed with the deadly reliability that I have become accustomed to.

    Worked up loads in the .416 Guide gun with the 350TTX's and was pleasantly surprised at the accuracy and speed. I backed it down from max and am at 2545fps, which simply amazed me in a 20" barrel.

    Topped with the Trijicon 1x6 and Alaska Arms QD mounts, I'm pretty happy with it. Easily a sub MOA shooter and the first MOA dot down is good at 300 yards. I'm pleasantly surprised with it.
