I ended up settling on the 270 Hornady round nose, 60 grains of IMR3031, CCI250 primer, Rem/Fed/Win brass ( all are the same weight) for 2410 fps and 1.5" 100 yard groups out of my Sako AV. Pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

I have basically duplicated my .35 Whelen when it is loaded with stiff hand loads, which is one of my favourites for elk and moose around home. And I can still load 300 grain bullets at 2500 if I need more thump for Buffalo on my next safari. Bonus is that both loads shoot to pretty much the same POI at 100 yards.

I'm liking the .375 more and more as I gain experience.

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.
