Boys, I'm going to start reloading for the 375 in the near future, and am getting the neccesary supplies gathered up.

I'm going to use hornady brass, fed. 215M primers, and a variety of 300 gr. soft/solid bullets. Which powder should I start with? I want the loads around 2400 fps., and I don't want to use a compressed load. I have always liked Hogdon powders, and contemplated H4350 or H4895. For those of you already reloading the 375 are there better poders to look at?

Those would be my first two choices as well, H4350 for 300's and RL-15 for anything lighter. Though good old IMR4895 will also do quite well with bullets in the 270-grain range.

Never loaded 300s, but RL15 did superbly for me in 235 and 270gr bullets.

I've had such good results with RL-15 (even with 300gr bullets) that I've simply not tried anything else.

+1 with RE 15. I has been very accurate with everything I have tried out of my 375 H&H.
