Took her out of the safe and went to the outdoor range to run a box down the tube on Wednesday.

Cleaned her up and now I know she's ready for whitetail hunting opening day November 28th here in Pennsylvania...

I went to the Range on Wednesday to sight it in. Today I cleaned it up and prepared the 40 rounds of brass for reloading. I am loading some Matts Bullets 160 Gr. RNFP Bullets over 24 Gr. H4198. I get great accuracy with that load.

I used to shoot a 450 Marlin, but sold it. I don't eat meat anymore so I'm he 450 was kind of out of place. Now I shoot .357 magnum and .30-30 rifles, and a .38 spec./.357 mag pistol, and .22lr pistol and rifle.

Old wood looks good when polished. Some new wood I have seen is not so good.

Well, I have a BB m94 in 375 Winchester made in 1980 that I bought a couple years ago, claimed to be "as new, unfired".

I REALLY love that rifle....well, other than the hard to come by ammo components. Luckily the same shop had 26rds of factory ammo on hand so I bought that too.

Anyway, I sent all the factory stuff downrange, got myself some Hawk bullets in the 200 and 250gr flavor, and cooked up some rounds to try out. I found that the 250gr seemed to shoot best, especially when loaded stout. I settled on that load (30gr of H4198) and was able to make a 1" group at 50yds on paper. I'd like to pick up some 220gr jacketed bullets from Vollmer to try, they seem to get very good reviews from other 375 Win shooters I speak to on other forums.


50yds is my average shot on game as I spend almost all of my hunting hours in the woods. I was especially pleased with the grouping because I find myself really struggling with open sights these days. I'm sure the rifle can shoot better than me, but I will be getting a Marbles tang sight for it in the near future.

Anyhow, what I have been doing with my 94 lately is sitting in the woods with it, waiting for the first successful hunt with that rifle. :)

Here it is posing with my S&W 629 Classic in the woods.
