Enjoyed the read Ardent.

I too am surprised by the 505 on the penetration test. It would be interesting to know what the 375 does with solids if you ever get the chance.

All the best.

Certainly, on my mind too, I'd like to do the .375 with 300gr abd 350gr solids and see what I get. It will be awhile as all the planks are frozen, -25 up here now and will be below zero for many months yet. We're trying to organise another Wood Bison hunt if my partner and I can buy time from our wives and kids, and I'll be sure to bring something heavy and compare it to his .300 Mag. We'd get close and aim for identical shot placement is the idea, a lot of variables still but it's a start.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
