Q: I want to use my .375 H&H Magnum for elk, moose and possibly grizzly on a Yukon hunt. Can you tell me the best powder and bullet to use, particularly the bullet. I know that a good many bullets for this big cartridge are designed for much larger dangerous game, and I don’t want the bullet to shoot clean through the animals without much expansion.

A: There’s a wide range of bullets available for the .375 H&H Magnum in different weights, styles and structure. I used the .375 for buffalo with several different bullets, but finally settled for a 300gn solid, but you don’t want that. There are good American bullets, but I believe I would choose the Woodleigh 300gn PP SN which a friend of mine used very successfully in

Africa on large plains game such as eland. My favourite powder for the .375 is W-760 and in my rifle with 600mm barrel, 77gn gave 2575fps. Extreme spread was only 15 fps and standard deviation wasfive fps. Loading 79gn of W-760 produced 2650fps with an extreme spread of 25, and a standard deviation of 12. Accuracy ran from one to 1-1/2 inches at 100yds. If W-760 is hard to get, try 78gn of AR2209 for about the same velocity.
