Reloading The .378 Weatherby Magnum

Loads for .378 Weatherby Magnum:

(Note: These are near maximum loads, you should use 10% less to start.)

(See note on Powders below or read all about various

Due to different barrel lengths, type of bullet, seating depth, primer type
and other factors, you may not get near the FPS charted. It is just a guide
and the reason you should start under these charges and work up.

235 grain JFP (Jacketed Flat Point)
H450 117 gr. 3,147 FPS
H4350 109 gr. 3,224
270 grain Hornady JSP (Jacketed Soft Point)

Discussion: Only Alliant (Reloader 19 and 22) and Hodgden (H450 and H4350)
show loads for the .378 Mag. I have never shot one, but I included these

3,000 Feet Per Second. Talk about stopping power!

Bullseye, Unique, 2400 and the RELOADER series, are products of Alliant
(formerly Hercules) Powders. Clays, Universal, HP38, HS6, H4895, H450 and
H4350 are products of Hodgdon Powders.
