Is this ammo no longer produced? Can it be found on shelves? Doing my homework online and im not finding much except for the history. It seemed like a popular round for big game cant see why they would stop production.

Winchester makes it in batches, and when it come up for sale you can expect to pay a premium for it. It's definitely worth reloading if you can.

Last time I saw factory ammo in stock (Ellsworth, Maine) it was over $60 for a box of 20.

It's a wonderful cartridge that never took off. I use Sierra 200gr bullets or Barnes 255gr.

Yea im not skilled in reloading. I do have a friend that may be able to help me if I get him what he needs. 60 bucks is a little steep for my blood. Thanks Dradian!!

Ok thanks for the help. So it's a hit or miss ghost hunt pay though the nose. Or I could look at it as an an opportunity to learn a skill and start reloading.

I had a shop where I was getting a box of 20 for $50., but he went up to $60 for the same box.He said Winchester went up so he had to, but I think he was blowing smoke up my butt because he was the only one
carrying them on a regular basis.

Learn to reload. It's not difficult. Brass and .375 bullets should be easy to come by. You can also cast bullets for it. I cast for the .38/55 which is almost the same caliber. I believe you can also make brass out of .30/30, .32 Special or .38/55 brass if you can't find the correct brass. Reloading has many benefits. Ask your buddy who reloads.
