I've got a 700 BDL in 350 Rem Mag. I've loaded the 200 gr. Hornady SP and the Sierra 225 gr. SBT with IMR4320. Accuracy is good. I've shot three black bears with the Horndy, and switched to the Sierra. I haven't got to shoot a bear yet with the Sierra. I would guess the Hornady would be a great deer bullet.


If you need Buffalo Bore you are using the wrong cartridge.

Have shot a couple of black bear with the 260 gr Nosler Accubond, over 69 grains of Reloader 15, from my 375 H&H Ruger Number One.

Excellent accuracy and excellent performance on game. Recoil is surprisingly mild, more like a big push than a harsh whack. However I suspect your Rem 700 might be lighter than my Ruger? Not sure.

Have also seen good accuracy with several different 300 gr bullets over enough H4350 to get around 2550 fps. Haven't taken any game with the 300 gr bullets though.

Except for one poor rockchuck with a 300 gr SPBT Sierra... smile

Seems like you latched onto a couple of real nice rifles. Congrats!

Might look at the Ruger .375 Magnum. The Ruger uses a Win 70 like CRF action. Several models from 20" to 24" barrels, and the AK guide in stainless with thread on brake is pretty nifty in the 20" guide series.

The ballistics TOP the .375 H&H from a 20" barrel vs the 24 or 26" barrel of the H&H. No belt on the case, shorter magnum but still a .532" standard magnum boltface.

Unless you want to team your .350rem mag with a .357mag; not much to consider comparing either ctgs you named to the .375 Ruger. There's also a .416 Ruger magnum. Shorter case enables more bullet seating flexibility. I don't think the .350rem mag is done on a short action receiver in the Classic series, but if so, it is not too impressive. The .35 Whelen is much better and there's lots of WSM and SAUM .35 cal wildcats out there.

The .350rem mag is kind of a cult ctg in Alaska as it can be built on a short-action and done on fwt barrel contour, so you got lightweight potential but heavy hitting.

If you're a handloader, the .375ruger mag is a great case design. Great choice for a .338 instead of the ruger short mag. Not much to necking down the parent ctg to .338...

Those who shoot cast bullets prefer the bigger calibers; just easier to get accuracy results from the larger bore ctgs.

If looking to go Rem 700, I wouldn't buy anything newer than a G serial number rifle, with the best being B & C numbers.

Not trying to look a gift horse in the mouth but this is in no way relevant to the question I asked. I already have the rifles and am quite happy with them. Just looking for loads ithers have used or even factory ammo would be fine. And why would I need to team a 350 with a .357?

Win 760/H414 works very well in the 375 H&H.

I will "third" or "fourth" the recommendation for RL-15 in the .375H&H. I found an accuracy node around 2850fps with RL-15 and 235gr TSX's and stopped there. Supposedly could go faster. But, I never bothered mashing the throttle...

In case you're interested in some factory .350 RemMag to hold you over until you develop loads Midway has Nosler Custom .350 on sale:
.350 ammo

I've tried it in my 700 Classic and its pretty good.

I have both and the 350 is one of my most accurate rifles. It likes H4895 & 250 Hornady SP and 250 grain Speers ~ 5 shot groups in the order of 1/2MOA.
I’ve shot my 350 (600) for quite a while. My Classic was new to me last year and now it’s Dyna Bore Coated. I’ve only shot that a little and it looks promising.

I’ve had several 375’s. Unfortunately I’ve only shot them at paper and prairie dogs. FYI: Over penetration is an issue with the dogs.

Seem RL-15 is the most mentioned powder for the .375 H&H, H-4350 not that far behind.

One would think the new powders would work as well, maybe better.

I guess those two old timers work so well, there's not much incentive to experiment.

My PH's allowed that very thing DF, a RL-15 or equivalent powder powering 270gr TSX's at 2700 fps is tops for ALL African game hunting except brain shooting ele.
