375 win.

I got my eyes on a buetiful marlin in 375 win practically brand new. I want to pull the trigger on it really bad as its a smokin deal. Problem is I don't reload and getting your hands on ammo is like finding a needle in a haystack unless you want to pay 80 a box on GB. I want to hunt with the gun and shoot it. Anyone got a line on some ammo cause if I could get my hands on 5 or 6 boxes I'd pull the trigger in a heartbeat.

16 years and counting. Welcome to the life of a Buffalo Bills fan!

Sadly, the great .375 Win is a rich man's gun OR strictly a reloader's deal these days...................... and that is IF the reloader can find brass.

If you can find a box of factory ammo for $80, you're getting it about $40 cheaper than the going, secondary market, rate. Typically, it's $5-$6/round for a box of 20. And Winchester stopped manufacturing ammo AND brass several years ago, with no answer as to if or when they will ever resume.

I would tell you to scoop the gun up if you can afford to have it just to sit on for a while..................or indefinitely........ I am hoping the supply of brass and/or ammo will come back some day. I hope it's sometime sooner than later.

You better have brass in hand before even thinking about buying... I would think you could get a steal on it because of the brass issue...hard to find .

I had one. Glad I don't have it anymore. I don't like guns that are a fortune to feed.

Not as cheap as the seasonal Winchester ammo runs of .375 but it is another ammunition option-

HSM is worth a try. I can vouch for the quality of their 41 mag cowboy action loading as it is super accurate in my S&W 657. If you can get quality brass through buying loaded ammo, they might be the way to go.

Also, you can shoot most 38-55 Winchester ammo in 375s, as it's about the same size and loaded to a lower pressure.

Buffalo Bore Comments

this also means you can work up milder loads using 38-55 brass too, once you take up hand-loading, which I would highly recommend. Also, you can work up 38-55 brass from 30-30 as the later was actually made by necking down the 38-55.

Marlin Owners forum posting

Keep your eyes peeled for Winchester brass, as they do make it in limited runs every so often, just like the 358 Win.

Don't let all the negatives stop you. If I ran into a Marlin 375 for a deal, it would be hard to walk away! There's something to be said about hunting with a gun that no one else has.

FWIW, I just got an email from Midway, and they have Winchester 375 ammo for $44/20. I thought it was insanely priced till I ran across this a thread! 200 gr Super X. Regularly $50/20 when they have it.....in stock at the moment.
