</ref> }} The .375 Ruger (9.5 x 65.5mm) is a rimless, standard-length rifle cartridge designed for the hunting of large dangerous game. It is designed to provide an increase in performance over the .375 H&H cartridge, yet to be chambered in a standard length action rifle. The cartridge was designed by Hornady and Ruger in partnership and released commercially in 2007 and chambered in the Ruger Hawkeye African and the Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan rifles.<ref name=“JJ01”>

Design & Specifications

The .375 Ruger uses a unique case designed by Hornady and Ruger. The case is of a rimless design having the base and rim diameter of

which is the same diameter of the belt on belted magnum cases based on the .300 H&H Magnum and .375 H&H Magnum. This allows the cartridge to have a greater case capacity than a belted magnum case given cases of equal length. As Ruger intended the cartridge to be chambered in standard length bolt action rifles<ref name=“JJ01”/> the case length was kept to

which is only

longer than the .270 Winchester case. The maximum overall length of the cartridge is

which is similar to the maximum overall length to standard length cartridges such as the .338 Winchester Magnum or the .30-06 Springfield. Unlike Remington Ultra Magnum cartridges, the Ruger Magnums can be chambered in standard length bolt action rifles. This allowed Ruger to chamber the cartridge without extensively redesigning their M77 rifle platform to adopt them to the new Ruger cartridge.

While the .375 H&H Magnum is longer than the .375 Ruger, the latter cartridge has a greater case capacity than the Holland & Holland cartridge. This is due to the .375 H&H Magnum having a long tapered body while the .375 Ruger follows modern cartridge designs in that it has very little taper and a sharper shoulder. The case capacity of the .375 Ruger is 99.0 gr. of water (6.43&nbsp;cm3) while the .375 H&H Magnum has a case capacity of 95.3 gr. of water (6.19&nbsp;cm3), an increase of 4%.

:

Cartridge standards for the .375 Ruger was issued by SAAMI in June 2007. SAAMI recommends a 6 groove barrel having a bore Ø of

and a groove Ø of

with a groove width of

. The recommended rate of twist is one revolution in

. Recommended maximum pressure for the cartridge is

.

Performance

Currently Hornady and Double Tap manufacture ammunition for the .375 Ruger cartridge. The Hornady superformace ammunition drives a Hornady

SP-RP bullet at

and the

DGS and DGX bullets at

. The Double Tap gets 2825fps - 4700&nbsp;ft./lbs. with a 270 grain Barnes TSX from a 23“ bbl. Ruger 77 African. The.375 Rugers slightly greater case capacity, and the “short fat” cartridge efficiency lead to increases in the neighborhood of 150 fps over the H&H cartridge. Their capabilities remain essentially comparable.

Like Nothing You've Ever Shot Before!

The 375 Ruger is one of the most practical, hardest-hitting cartridges EVER for large and dangerous game. Cutting edge cartridge geometry and technologically advanced propellants enable the 375 Ruger to exceed the performance of the benchmark 375 H&H. When fired side by side with the 375 H&H with 24" barrels, the NEW 375 Ruger delivers 170 fps more velocity from the 270 gr load, and 145 fps from the 300 gr loads!* Even when fired from a shorter 20" barrel, the 375 Ruger still delivers ballistic performance that exceeds the 375 H&H.

Featuring a newly designed rimless, beltless case, the 375 Ruger has the same head diameter as “belted cases” but a greater case capacity due to its increased body diameter. The best part is the fact that it is the same length as the 30-06, so it can be chambered in any standard length action.

Over the past several decades, the names Hornady and Ruger have become synonymous with “The Best”. The 375 Ruger is no exception.

Exceeds 375 H&H performance

Smoothest feeding dangerous game cartridge on the market

Field proven terminal performance
