    Thompson-Center Contender in .375 Winchester

    Here's my TC Contender in .375 Winchester.

    One of the early, 4-digit serial number, blued frames with a stainless steel Super 14 barrel that I had KG Koted in matte black.

    Burris 2x Posi-Lock scope in Leupold Dual Dovetail rings/mounts.

    I use it every year in Ohio for hunting whitetail.

    With Wisconsin Cartridge Company loads topped with a Hornady 220grn FP, it'll shoot 3 rounds into 1" or better at 100yds, prone shooting off a ruck.

    The ammo picture is a .375 Winchester round next to a 175grn .308 for comparison. The .375 Winchester is basically a .30-30 run straight up with all the bottleneck removed.

    I don't mind the recoil at all. I've shot up to 20 or so rounds in a sitting without problems.

    I use it for deer hunting in Ohio. You have to use a shotgun with slugs or a handgun that meets the following criteria:

    1. Minimum barrel length of 5"

    2. Minimum bullet diameter of .357"

    3. Cartridge has to be straight-walled, no bottlenecks

    It rarely gets shot anymore. I when it looked like federal was going to quit making 375 winchester I bought 13 boxes of it. Should be a lifetime supply. Hunting these days is usually a 45 caliber caplock Kentucky rifle or 50 caliber flintlock. A gun without ammo is just a fancy club. And not a good one of those....
    Their ammo does look interesting.
    How is the recoil on the hand cannon ?

    gunnutt, are you reloading for your .375? If not, try some of the Wisconsin Cartridge Co 220grn FP. It's less expensive than the Winchester 200grn load and uses a much better Hornady-made bullet.

    I own a Winchester model 94 Big Bore in 375 Winchester. It packs quite a wallop. Can't imagine what the recoil on the pistol must be like.
