Even in an ever-more-crowded field, the .375 H&H Mag. remains one of the few truly “great” cartridges. For more than a century, the medium bore has proven its merit on all manner of game, up to and including pachyderms. In fact, in some countries its .375"-diameter bullet is the smallest permitted for hunting dangerous game. In North America it’s a favorite among bear, elk and moose hunters—especially for Alaskans. Despite the “medium-bore” moniker, the .375 H&H Mag.—unsurprisingly—generates generous perceived recoil, particularly in lightweight rifles. However, full-strength ammunition isn’t always needed. For practice or the pursuit of non-dangerous species at reasonable ranges, try the reduced-recoil recipe below. Make no mistake, the load is no pushover; energy levels exceed those of standard, 165-gr. .308 Win. ammunition—at the muzzle and at 200 yds.—with a .375"-diameter (pre-expanded) bullet to boot. Please note that the 53,000 C.U.P.-load, which is found on Hodgdon’s Powder Co.’s website, should be adhered to exactly—no component substitution or changing charges.
