Mech 8,
Thanks for that info. I actually just joined Load Data Monday and found some 4895 loads to try when I get back home. Also looks like I can go higher with the RE7 than I thought I could. I get home on the 5th, and will have 2 weeks before our gun season to get a good accurate load.

Managed to try some hotter loads today. Still using Reloader #7 and 200 GR Sierra bullets I tried 34.1 grains, 35.1 grains and 35.8 grains. Velocities averaged 1738, 1798, and 1850. All loads were very accurate. Under an inch at 25, and barely over an inch at 50. Recoil was starting to get stout but still manageable.
Now I need to either find some more #7 or load up some with H4895.

good luck finding powder right now. I found the best powder to be #7 but use what you can find. you are still under max on your loads and can get more if you really want to, i am getting 2000 fps with mine, the recoil was stout as you described until I put a brake on it and now it is a pussycat. with that said it will kill anything you shoot with it at reasonable ranges. good luck with your 375 and post pics when you kill.
