I have a new 12" barrel with brake coming. Guess I will find out. I have Pachs on my Contender now.

you will enjoy it with a brake- and the performance out to 150 yards is impressive

Well, I got my12" barrel and mounted a NcStar 2-7x32 illuminated scope on it. It came with some Starline brass, and I got 100 Sierra 200 grain FP bullets as well. I couldn't find any load data using H-4895, which I have lots of. I have a small amount of Reloader #7 and read that loads between 30 and 36 grains will work. I loaded 3 batches with 30.5, 31.5, and 32.5 grains. Velocities were 1503, 1587, and 1626 for these. Recoil was very mild and accuracy was good. Really liking this combo.
Heading back to work for 2 weeks, but when I get back I'm going to load some more with a little more powder. Hope to use this for deer this season.

Looks nice but why is the photo dated 2007?

LOL I used my camera instead of my phone as it's easier to post pics from an SD card for me. When I turn the camera on it prompts me to enter date and I never bother. I never even noticed that.

The rings are somewhat high but very secure and they were on hand.

You will like the .375 Win, it kills whitetails with authority.

Nice set up.

I've been interested in this round for awhile. Keep us posted on how it does for you during deer season.

Hunting in Ohio, I too am restricted to straight wall cartridges although they do allow .45-70 and .444. There is no cartridge length restriction.

Good luck.

The OP?s velocity is too low for reliable expansion, he is well below published maximums. Here is current Sierra data, max for RL-7 but he can gain another 100 fps with AA-1680.

Since you stated you have lots of H4895 I thought I might dig around for some load data. On Loaddata.com I found a reference using the 220 grain Hornady FP and 38.0 grains of H4895 in a rifle. I also found a 235 grain Speer SP using a max charge of 36.0 grains of IMR 4895 in a Contender. The 4895's are on the slow side for getting top velocity and AA1680, 4198, and RE7 will produce higher velocities. But in this current pandemic environment you might not be able to find any. You can look at 38-55 data and kind of use that as a guideline. I know the 375 Win case is shorter, but compare the overall lengths of the two and this will give you a better idea that they are not that much different in case capacity. I have a Contender S-14 in 38-55 with no brake and have worked up to 40.0 grains of H4895 using the Sierra 200 grain FN seated to an overall length of 2.700 (just touching the lands). This load is clocking 1850 fps in 90+ degree temps. I haven't used it on game yet, but I'm pretty confident it would work fine for deer. I will offer the usual disclaimer that this data was alright in my firearm and should be reduced and worked up to in your firearm. I offer this info because in these times you have to use what you have on hand.
