In stewing over the available load data for 300 grain bullets in .375 H&H, two powders stand out: Winchester 760 and H4350. Do you have experience with H4350? How's the accuracy and overall performance for this cartridge? I've got some 760 and will try it myself, but I'd like to try the Hodgdon powder because I like their Extreme powders.

Thanks, Ricciardelli! I appreciate the info. Do you happen to know how that bullet works on game animals the size of bison?

Neither my .375 nor my .458 ever saw blood. I bought them for a 4 week African trip, but about a month before I was scheduled to leave I had my first heart attack, which wiped-out around 1/3rd of my heart, and 6 or 7 cardiologists (all big game hunters) advised me to cancel.

Thanks for the info, but it gave me a bitterness attack. You save up for a long time, work your butt off, look for a little reward to help make life worthwhile, and then something like that. I'm sorry it had to happen that way. Hopefully you'll get there some day.
