Hi guys

Due to paying ï½£60.00 for 10 rounds for Norma PH .375 H & H 350 grain, I have decided to load my own.
Would like some feedback as to what loads you are using, also loads for .300 Win Mag 180 grain.

Hi DavieH,
Although I do not have a .300 Win Mag, do use my .375H&H. I hunt with it personally and if required and after instructions, use it for backup shots on all plains game.
Because most of the back up shots will be further out, I like it to have some legs, thus loading a light for calibre bullet. I use a 200gr bullet in the .375H&H, which runs over 3000fps. I make use of GSCustom bullets, which should be available to you. They are actually manufactured in South Africa in Port Elizabeth. Here is their website: GS Custom Bullets - Designed in South Africa - Proven on the toughest game on the planet.
Read up about their different bullets. Their performance is absolutely crazy. 98%-100% weight retension.
Otherwise I would look at something like the 250gr TSX by Barnes.

Best Regards
Marius Goosen

For quick success with a 180 grain .300 try RL22. I shot F-class with 190 Bergers and SMKs seated over 79 grains of H1000, and the 200 grain Accubond over 78 grains of the same powder resulted in a serious long range hunting load.

The majority of my .375 game was taken with 760 (H414) powder and 270 and 300 grain TSXs and 270 grain A-frames. Since I've migrated to the 270 A-Frame for everything, I've switched to useing RL15 for an extra 100 fps and less muzzleflash.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
