Hi all,

This is my first post on this fourm, I have been reading on it for a while and decided to join.

Recently I traded a Marlin 30-30 and an old 20 gauge shotgun for a Marlin in 375 Winchester. I am looking for data with a 200 grain bullet, any takers?

I should add, that I do not shoot cast bullets yet. I haven't had the time to learn. Well that is going to change! What book gives the best info for learning about cast bullets and how to load them?

The best place to find out about reloading lead has got to be Lyman cast bullet handbook,also you can do a search on this site for the 375 win. I have the new 38-55 cowboy and love it can't wait for deer season to open. Hope this helps.

If you've been reading this board for a while you'll know this is my favorite round, and therefore not restrain myself from putting in my &#36.02.

I've not tried any 200 gr jacketed to-date, but have experimented some with the Hornady 220 gr JFP and (what else?) Re7. I worked up to about 37.x gr before running out of bullets...not to mention that the first order of BTB 250's arrived!  Additionally, these Hornady's are a bit on the high side, at around &#3625/100, for casual shooting.  They should be deadly on deer sized game though.

As for reference on loading cast lead, I believe that Veral Smith's book has a good reputation, assuming you can find a copy.  The Lyman and BTB books are good too.

Hey Guys,

If you go to Sixgunner.com and scroll clear to the bottom of the page you can still get one of Veral's books.  His wife had a small stock on hand when he went to prison, and has been selling them to try and stay afloat.
