Picture_0211
375 H&H AI

Description: This group measures just under 3/8's at 100 yards. The load is a 270gr Hornady Sp and 72 gr of IMR 4064 at 2300fps. The scope is a Bushnell 2-6 Firefly. There are two holes on the top and one at the bottom and all the bullets are vertically lined up. With that scope I am VERY happy with that group with such a thick plex.


I thought about trying RL15 or Varget because I could have the potential to get another 100 fps out of the cartridge, but I felt like it I would be hard pressed to beat this group. Particularly sense the bore of the barrel has complete burn and is squeaky clean. Besides, I don’t think any game would ever know the difference.

Duane, I think you`ve reached the high point of success with the group size of your 375. I believe you have also topped 375 JDJ velocities and we all know how much game has been taken with that cartridge. You have yourself one heck of a big game handgun....

What ever you intend to shoot you must want to kill it a lot. L.O.L. Great group!

The .375's are really accurate & hard to beat for big game.
