Buy the Barnes loading book. 270 TSX is an accurate killer.

........Yep!!...Here is some load data that I have duplicated and used in my own 375 Ruger Alaskan.

Go to......."gunblast.com",,,,,,then click on,,,,"archives",,,,and then speed scroll down to the date of,,,,,2/6/07.

There you`ll find a Jeff Quinn article about the 375 Ruger African containing about 20 reloads using bullets from 235 grs on up to the 300 grainers. Deduct maybe 60-70 fps for the shorter Alaskan barrel.

There are several 270 gr TSX loadings there.

Hint!!.....I use two powders; H4350 and RL15 exclusively in my Alaskan. Veeeedy accurate!!!

A good read too!! As most of what he writes should also apply to the Alaskan too.

.........Any hunting stories, pics, killing performance, or whatever you`ve seen or read about the 375 H&H, would also apply equally to the 375 Ruger.

I've used the Alaskan version in AK several times to take 2 black and 1 brown bear at ranges from 40-330 yards. The bullet was the 300 grain TSX driven by H4350 to about 2550+. Less than MOA accuracy out to 300 yds on paper. RL-15 also works well as do the 270 grain TSX and the factory loads. Haven't tried factory loads on game, but as far as accuracy and advertised MV they work well. Have seen a small brown killed with the 300 grain factory round nose - did the job. Great cartridge and rifle. My main modification was to replace the Hogue with a Borden Rimrock, a matter of taste.

I have also used the African version in 375 Ruger (also less than MOA at same range, same loads), but that one is now re-bored to 404 Ruger. Used it in Africa on Cape buffalo and some PG. Would recommend either version depending on your intended use, but would caution that the wood stock (African) should be appropriately bedded (preferably fiberglass) by someone experienced with Rugers and the action screws torqued to specs.
