270 gr. Lehigh Defense SOLID Mono-Metal @ 2,750 fps/ME 4,533 ft-lbs
20 Round Box


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.

We could achieve more FPS from this load, simply by adding more powder and compressing it with the seated bullet. I do not believe in heavily compressed powder charges with dangerous game ammo, so this load is slightly compressed, but not heavily compressed.

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 H&H, this is the load. It will penetrate several feet through mammalian muscle and bone.

At 150 yards, this load also shoots very close to the same point of impact as our Item 54C, which utilizes the expanding Barnes TSX, 270 gr. bullet. We prefer a 270 gr. solid for deep penetration over traditional 300 gr. solids.

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.

➤  2,851 fps -- Encore, 28 inch barrel
➤  2,746 fps -- CZ Mod. 550, 25 inch barrel
➤  2,749 fps -- Ruger # 1, 24 inch barrel
➤  2,759 fps -- Kimber Talkeetna, 24" barrel
➤  2,620 fps -- Mauser MK X, 19 inch barrel

NOTE: We started making 375 H&H ammo many years before we came out with our “Dangerous Game” loads in various rifle calibers. (375 Ruger, 416 Ruger, 416 Remington, 458 Win. Mag. and 458 Lott) Rather than change the name and item #’s of our established 375 H&H loads and confuse our distributors/customers by changing those item numbers, we’ve chosen to leave these item numbers as they were when we introduced these 375 H&H loads many years earlier. While these loads are true Dangerous Game loads, designed for African and Alaskan game animals, we simply have not included the common term of “Dangerous Game” into the name or item numbers.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
