Re: 38-55 LOADS FOR 375 WIN
As long as you use .375 brass, you can safely load it down to .38-55 level using .38-55 reloading data.
Use rifle primers though...don't use pistol primers (regular or magnum)!
I don't have any data for BLC2 in .38-55 so I can't give advice on that particular load either. If you have data from a manual that uses BLC2, ythen you should be able to use it. Just change those primers to std rifle or whatever the data calls for.
A friend of mine has a .375 and he uses H4198 with 250gr cast bullets for a light load. I don't know the weight of his powder charge though.
.38-55 brass is 0.06" of an inch longer than .375 brass, so if you try to fire .38-55 cartridges in the .375 chamber, you will most likely have a dangerous situation.
