Looking for favorite loads for your 375 H&H ... 260 accubonds are my favorite. Anyone running RL17 or RL26?? Thanks in advance

Yep, RL-17 under 300gr Partitions and BBW #13 solids, partitions run 2680, solids go 2700 fps.

WW or RP brass,
start at 76gr RL-17 with a chronograph.
Fed-215 or CCI-250 primers.

Accurate as hell in the old pre-64 375 H&H I bought from BSA, hell of a rifle and loads.

I'm using 375 H&H, RWS brass with 74.0 gr of Reloder 17, Fed 215 GM primers behind 299 gr Shock Hammers in My Weatherby Safari Classic, 24 inch barrel, mv 2670 fps. Hottest I could use was 76.0 gr getting ejected marks. JM

When I retired my Model 70 almost 30 years ago, it shot extremely well with, R-P brass, CCI primer, 82.0 grains of WW 760, with a Hornady 270 grain SP. When I did my part, it was good for 5 rounds inside of 3/4” ....one big ragged hole in the target! memtb

It depends on what you're hunting.

Cutting Edge Bullets makes some unique products. I've had great results with their 135 gr. Raptor in my .308.

In my M-70 NH .375 H&H, this load worked out really well. I haven't bloodied it yet, did with the .308.

I've heard some African PH's like CEB bullets. I don't think they do well in brush, but for PG and general hunting, pretty impressive accuracy and terminal performance..

They're expensive, but how many do we actually shoot at critters. Practice with something less expensive.

Here are a couple of links. I wrote the second review on this .308 bullet. https://cuttingedgebullets.com/308-135gr-er-extended-range-raptor

Here's the .375 bullet I used. https://cuttingedgebullets.com/375-235gr-er-extended-range-raptor

Well, that kinda group may be hard to duplicate, but it happened once. And, you'd know it would be the one the chrono missed. CEB bullets are accurate and deadly and expensive.... wink

Thats damn good. I loaded the 260gr partitions in my pre 64 375H&H. Loved those pills... Ha ha.. I see gunner commented on that very rifle. That one sure is a sweetheart of a rifle. Excellent shooter with many different weights of bullets..
