Or just 235 grain .375" bullets at about 2800 - 3000 fps... (y)


Now you're talking!

7mm Mags practically grow on trees and can be picked up virtually anywhere.... .375s do not.

Guy, you have to much time on your hands.

Visit Hodgeman and use that 375 for a brown bear hunt, then go on a moose hunt with Dr Mike, then head further north and go on a muskox or white bear hunt with Cheyenne, then ask Jamila to take you on a Cape Buffalo hunt and maybe even a lion hunt. When you have accomplished all of that get back to us and let us know if you still want to convert it to a 7 mm (-:

Laughin' here!

Ya, well, I did mention I had a few things to do with it as a .375 first...

I'm pretty sure it will continue to exist as a .375 as long as I own it. (y)

Keep him on the straight and narrow, April! (y) I imagine Guy will make the right choice. :grin:

Nice shooting and that is a lot of gun. I am not a fan of hard recoiling rifles and not afraid to admit it.

Started my relationship with a .375 H&H in 2009 as I recall. Dang... I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it's got a "big push" instead of the "sharp slap" of so many magnum rifles.

Not long ago, earlier this year, I introduced a lady to rifle shooting. She LOVED the .375 H&H! Didn't like my .30-06 so much, said it kicked too hard...

So... there ya go. Food for thought.

The .375 obviously produces much more recoil, but maybe in a more "user friendly" fashion? I dunno, I just enjoy shooting it.

Regards, Guy
