Anybody have any experience with these bullets in the 375 JDJ? It's about all I can find right now. Would be used on most Alaskan big game critters.


Vance in AK.

Not sure if you use it but Gunbroker had some 270gr. Hornady’s the other day.

I have used the 260 grain Nosler Accubond in my Contender SSK .375 JDJ. It shoots great with Varget. I get an avg. of 1800 fps from the 14" barrel and 1.25" at 100 yds from a bag. The only thing I have shot was a
100 lb. whitetail and a 125lb pig. Both times I got a pass through but lost of internal damage. I had it sighted for zero at 125 yds and it was 4.5" at 200 yds. I mostly use Varget but finally found some AA2520 that shoots great. Also I have tried H4895 with good results on the heavy bullets.
I will look to see what I have in .375 bullets. I have a pile of them. I shoot them in my .375 JDJ pistol and my .376 Steyr MOA pistol. I mostly shoot 220 or 225 grn bullets in my .375 JDJ and Steyr. Very good deer round and not as hard on the wrist.

I have one bag, 50ea of the Nosler 260 grain, .375 bullets in Accubond by Nosler. I only shoot a few per year so I could spare these. For sale or trade.
