Winchester offers a 200-grain Super-X Power Point

As far as I know, that is all that is offered. It's to bad Hornady doesn't offer ammo with their 220-grain FP Interlock. 375 shooters might email them with the request.

Robby,

Welcome to the group, and congratulations on your new rifle. The boys here have a great deal of expirience with the 375 WIN, foremost are probably Bart Masterson and Sunday Creek, and I dabble with it, some.

The only commercial cartridge is a 200 grain Winchester Power Point, and that is not produced year round, near as I can tell. Midway doesn't carry any right now, or brass for that matter, so I have had to find it here and there.

I reckon the best place is the old gun stores, and you might here things there like "375 Winchester? really?" I found a whole passle of boxes in Greenville, Ky, and that is what the boy asked me, he blew the dust off of the boxes, and then said, "no telling how long those have been there."

A fellow has two boxes on Gunbroker, and that is not a bad place to look, either.

Reloading will give a fellow better flexibility, as I am told that 38-55 brass works, and 30-30 brass can be formed to the rifle, but I have tried neither. A fellow can get 200, 220, 235, and 255 grain jacketed bullets, and this caliber seems like it would be a natural for hard cast.

Good luck Robby, enjoy the rifle, and again, Welcome.

Steve

Yep, haunt the various gunshops in your area, as well as gunshows. Winchester still makes the ammo, and brass, but they make a run once a year or so. Most of the less popular cartridges are done that way.
Don't get discouraged-it's a really nice cartridge, well worth the effort of finding feed for it.

Thanks everyone for the quick response and the hospitality!!! I bought the rifle about 15 years ago and gave it to my brother for Christmas...unfortunately he was killed in an auto accident five years later...so my father gave the rifle back to me, which I gave to my 13 year old son. We use it in the swamps of Eastern N.C. for whitetails and it works great but I only have four shells left...not to mention the sentimental value it holds within our family.

Again thanks for the info I really appreciate it !!!!!!!!!!!!

Being a straight walled case, you could get a Lee hand loader, your brass and powder/bullets. Be set up for rolling your own pretty cheaply and wouldn't be dependent on the winds of fate for commercial ammo.

Cascade Ammunition has .375 Win factory 200 gr power points for $29. Looked like the gray X box. Good luck.
