    375 Winchester load data?

    Looking for load data for 375 Win with 200 JFP.
    I used to load Re-7 but loads I now find are anemic. Also, limited powder selection.
    I see articles listing MV of any where from 2100 fps to 2400 fps...
    I suspect that no LVR powder loads exist... too bad.

    I know that posts have covered this before but I cannot find them with a topic search. Maybe too old...
    Always better to carry "too much" gun and too many cartridges...
    Marlin 1894SS(2009), Marlin 1894(1975), Winchester 1886 Ultralight rifle(1910), Springfield Trapdoor carbine(1880), Sharps carbine(1863)

    I'm in the same boat. Lyman 48, 49 and 50 don't show data for the 200gr. Sierra bullets. In what I have been able to find on it, Accurate 1680, Rel-7, H322, H4198 and IMR 4198 seem to be the go to powders for the .375 Win. with maybe a slight edge to the Accurate 1680. I would like to pick up some Barnes 255gr originals, but they are expensive. Barnes lists the Rel-7 as their top pick for that bullet.

    Sierra shows the 200 gr #2900 bullet. They show RE7 as the accuracy and hunting load... Others listed are A 5744, IMR 4198, H322 and A 2230...

    My rifle shoots good groups with 35gr H4198 and the 200gr Sierra. I haven't got around to dialing in a "better" load yet.

    Bill,

    The attached link is to a sticky post I started a few years ago in the Reloading Forum. You will find many load data reference links in the post. Hope you find what you need.

    40 gr to 535 gr, all moving at the most accurate velocity!

    The only bullet I can find is the Sierra 200 gr., so I compare that data with the powder manufacturer's. What I'm currently using is the 200 gr. Sierra bullet and RL-7. Unfortunately this is a heavily compressed load.
