I want to achieve 2450-2500 fps with a 300 grain. With my 20" barrel, I'm not sure its possible.

Ill send you a PM
i'll look into it and get back to you. with the construction of the (solid) TSX it behaves like a 300+ of other traditional bullets, so you may wish to consider it. if my memory serves me correctly, in a 25.5" bbl Steyr it shot in the 2,770 fps range. They say in that caliber that you might incur a loss of 10-25 fps/in of bbl so in 20" you should be in the 2,600 fps range with hot handloads and 2,450 neighborhood with quality factory loads. It's definitely do-able. A 300 will be a tad bit lower in V.

I would look at giving StaBall 6.5 powder a try...it has an edge in both the 375 H&H as well as the 375 Ruger as being slightly the fastest FPS powder Hodgdon has listed for 300 grain bullets. Not sure the exact FPS loss you will encounter with 20 as their barrel length tested was 24 but you should be real close to where you want to be. I have a few pounds of it to try out but haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you have a chronograph you could work the load up close watching for pressure signs but it should get you really close to where you wanna be.

Thanks! I got the Caldwell Chrono, and I love the whole setup with the app on my phone. It tracks everything for you.

I haven't seen any of that powder, but I'll look for it. Thanks again!

Think I forgot to mention but that load was for 375 Ruger not 375 H&H but definitely double check from the manufacturer before trying any loads.

Considering you are in MY want to buy post, I believe he was talking to me. Dang dude, don't be a Hyena .
Well..... I see that you've already bought some of these bullets in the comments above. I also noted that someone else had mentioned they were selling some as well. I too have some of these very bullets that I had considered selling, and was interested to see how much people were asking for their bullets, so I would know how to price my bullets, in case you needed more. But I assume you would never do business with a Hyena, so I will keep mine. Thanks

You should list them, someone will buy them.

I apologize for misreading your comment, but it looked like poaching. You should have just asked what they were going for. But again, I apologize for misreading the situation.

I got up to 2611fps with the 300g TSX from my 23 inch barrel without any issues. Powder was Reloader 17

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
