    So my local guy to buy .375 Winchester just jump up $10 on a 20 pack. They were $50, and I went in today and it went up to $60. He had some when I bought some the last time and I doubt he is selling much of it, but says they went up on him and $60. is what it is now.

    Sounds like he knew you would be back to buy a somewhat hard to find cartridge.

    $3/round? Holy crap. You wouldn't have to shoot that many to pay for reloading equipment.

    This! JFC that's approaching 50 BMG prices. You definitely need to start reloading. Unless this is just a hunting rifle that gets shot once a year? Even still, I would recommend reloading.

    I'll see if my local shop near Foxwoods has this caliber (kind of doubt, it, but you never know). I know he has had some older stock .38-55 and .32-40 recently.
    I've got two varieties of 300g bullets in .375" diameter, but that doesn't help you much. Besides, these are more suitable for .375 H&H and other pointed calibers.
    Ron's Guns (East Lyme, CT) probably has it, but he isn't cheap either. Besides, unless you commute to NYC, it wouldn't be worth the drive or shipping expense.

    Actually, I do reload for the .375 Winchester, but figured I would splurge after selling a bunch of hunting stuff in a yard sale.
    I figured I should spend some of it before the wife decides to spend it on something useless ( at least to me ). I wasn't expecting the price jump,
    and was going to buy some .35 bullets for the .35 rem. but he wanted $50.00 for 100 Hornady Interlock soft points. So the .35 bullets stayed there.

    Go to shooting supply.

    Great cartridge to cast for. Keep an eye out for the next casting seminar.

    Maybe just me, but I could not find any .375 Winchester ammo at Shooting Supply

    This is one of the calibers that got me into reloading. Thank goodness I stated saving brass 20 years ago.

    I find the 200gr JFN bullets shoot the best in my rifle, but I have heard of some people just using hard cast lead.

    I was suggesting getting some reloading supplies.
    Or ask mark to order some ammo. I bet his prices are better.

    Oh, OK. Actually I have all the components I need to reload, but had some money to spend before my wife spent it for me. Including some 220 gr hornady bullets.

    Nice.
    Looks like a good round for cast bullets.

    Well then you must be ready.
    Best thing you can do as a reloader.

    Some of the guys here get together and teach a seminar in southeastern MA in the fall. $30 a head pays for breakfast. Lunch and a many Bullets as you can cast while you’re there.

    No excuses. ;)

    We had a dude from Virginia last seminar.

    Of course if you’re from Gloucester we all know the shooters from up there are too good for us lowly bullet casters.

    From N.H., not Ma., the state won't even let me have empty cases never mind cast bullets.

    Blah you just cast and ship them home to yourself. You’re over thinking it. ;)
