Thread: price of .375 ammo

  1. #1

    price of .375 ammo

    Perhaps I should have found this out before hand, but what is the going rate for .375 ammo? I live very close to Kynoch arms, so I will most likely get some from them, but interested to see what the price of factory loads are.......

    Hi

    A box of 300grn I have says 44.95/20 - I picked this up a few years ago from a local dealer as it was left over from a 'hand-in'.

    Just reload now as far cheaper on local deer..................

    ok, so twice the price of .308 then........I'm guessing though that unless its being used a lot, not worth the out lay on reloading gear. I suspect that if I get it from Kynoch and return used brass the price will go down (he says optimistically!!!!)
    Thanks for the reply.

    You will be looking at around 80+ a box, especially with premium bullets loaded. Hornady will probably be the cheapest, but i wouldn't shoot anything big or expensive with it. Kynoch ammo is not great at all, and i would advise using Federal or Norma.

    Outch outch and f****** ok, hadn't quite thought it would be sooooo expensive! Especially not the price on Mcleods website Dalua! This could be damaging, Danpd, whats the issue with Kynoch? I haven't used them yet, but they are litterally 500m from my door step so they would seem logical. What about the costs of home loading? Never thought about it before, but might have to be considered!
    Thanks for all responses though!

    The cost of a basic reloading kit will be recouped very quickly on that cartridge - the more you shoot the less you pay so to speak.

    Have you managed to progress the use of the .375 in the UK on deer then?

    +1. With the larger calibres such as .375 H&H and 9.3x74r reloading really is the answer. I don't know about Kynoch as regards quality but their prices certainly frighten me. Mcleods prices are a good indicator of the price of ammunition.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Looking at the prices on Macleod`s reloading is definitely the way to go.... 7.00 and pennies, is a lot of bucks for your single bang.....

    Good luck DS.308 I hope you get a good solution.

    All the best.

    Last time I checked privi did 375 H&H at about 150 per hundred, if it was only for practice or for use on uk species it might be worth a look.
