NEW BUFFALO BORE APPAREL
“DANGEROUS GAME” 375 RUGER MONO-METAL
270 gr. SOLID @ 2,750 fps / 4,533 ft-lbs
BUFFALO BORE DANGEROUS GAME 375 SERIES
ITEM 375 Ruger DG 270 SOLID
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 our 270 gr. Solid, FN, Lehigh Defense bullet, for use on those bad angle shots of a charging or running away wounded Buffalo or an elephant brain shot. If you want super deep straight line penetration from your 375 Ruger, this is the load. It will penetrate several feet through mammalian muscle and bone.
This “solid” bullet shoots very close to the same point of impact as our 270 gr. TSX load at 150 yards from both of my test rifles.
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 2,700+ fps with this load. A 24-inch barrel with the right types of internal dimensions could easily give another 100-175 fps. This is a great place to ask you to read an article on “Velocity Versus Barrel Length.”
The American gun industry has been duplicitous in claiming bullet velocities. It’s typical for ammo companies to use very long machine mounted test barrels to get very high velocities, but in the real world, with real firearms, you simply will not achieve those results. 23 years ago, Buffalo Bore started to publicly expose this practice and today we are starting to see a few ammo companies get honest with velocities by using real-world guns to generate published velocities. About 35 years ago, (long before I was Buffalo Bore Ammunition) I bought my first chronograph as I had a deep interest in ballistics. (this is being written in 03-2020) I was immediately stunned by how low ACTUAL velocities were, versus published velocities, when it comes to the big ammo companies’ products. When I started Buffalo Bore Ammunition, I chose not to be dishonest regarding published velocities.
