NEW BUFFALO BORE APPAREL
“DANGEROUS GAME” 375 RUGER
300 gr. Barnes TSX @ 2,600 fps / 4,502 ft-lbs
BUFFALO BORE DANGEROUS GAME 375 SERIES
ITEM 375 Ruger DG 300 TSX
The 375 Ruger cartridge is an improvement over the 375 H&H in a few ways. When this cartridge was introduced, I was slow to warm up to it as I had been shooting the 375 H&H for decades and liked it. The 375 Ruger functions on a standard (not magnum) length action, it holds roughly 10% more powder than the venerable H&H and generates about 5%-7% more velocity with like bullet weights. What’s not to like?
Buffalo Bore’s rifle cartridges that are intended for use on Dangerous Game, are full-powered, but we do NOT try to milk every extra FPS out of them as we would prefer to have low pressures that leave room for bad circumstances such as a barrel with rainwater, dust, or other debris in it. There is no good reason to have pressures so high as to cause function issues with your rifle under dangerous or adverse/sloppy conditions. This load is SAAMI compliant.
This is the load to use if you want the absolute most penetration out of an expanding bullet, but still, it will not penetrate as deeply as our 270-gr. Lehigh Defense solid load……not even close! This 300 gr. TSX out penetrates the best premium or partition type 300-gr. bullet we’ve tested. There’s no reason not to hunt animals that weigh up to 3,000 lbs. or more depending on shot placement, with this load.
I see this load as most useful in Africa, but if you choose to use it in AK, it’ll work wonderfully on any critter that lives there.

You’ll note that I have two Ruger Guide rifles chambered in 375 Ruger. This is because I really like this style of rifle (20-inch barrel, all stainless, three positions safety that locks the bolt, adjustable length of pull, iron sights and moisture impervious, strong stock) and 30 years ago, had to pay thousands of dollars to get a rifle designed and custom made like the Ruger Guide Gun series, which retails for only around $1,000.00. These rifles only have 20-inch barrels, so you can expect that longer barrels will give higher velocities as Ruger barrels are generally not fast for length but give average/normal velocities per length. Both of my Ruger Guide Guns give roughly the same velocity of 2,500+ fps with this load. A 24-inch barrel with the right types of internal dimensions could easily give another 100-150 fps. This is a great place to ask you to read an article on “Velocity Versus Barrel Length”.
