First question is do you already have one? No? Then you need one. Not so hard after all. laugh

To shoot .375 bullets. You cain't do that with a .338.

Back in the summer I bought a 700 classic in 375 h&h. Not much use for one here in KY, however. I shot it, enjoyed through deer season after using it on a buck and it went back in the safe. The more I thought about it the more I realized I really didn’t need it. Sold it to a member here last week. The remaining brass and dies are in the classifieds now. I’d own another one day but like geedubya said....it was cheap entertainment.

I say get it. I liked mine.


And on the third day, God created the Remington bolt action rifle, so that man could fight the dinosaurs and the homosexuals.

Your money and your decision but I always ask myself if I'm spending money just for the sake of spending. If the answer is yes, I usually don't.

I'm pretty sure the NYP has that title ass backwards, He in all likelihood set the wild animals free....THEN he killed self. It's never a bad idea to buy a .375 H&H. It's a classic cartridge. I have a model 70 SS classic CRF in .375. I've taken Moose, Elk, Whitetails & Mule deer with it.

I have a Pre64 M70 and worked up a reduced load using pistol bullets and it's a pleasure to shoot and it's a hell of a deer rifle. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

On my third .375H&H. Never hunted outside CONUS. Never hunted dangerous game. As above there is no "Need" for it. But it is fun to play and tinker with...

Ive got one in the safe I bought for a good deal. Its fun to shoot, and has been pretty accurate with 35 Whelen level loads (235 gr Speer, 60-something grains of Varget for around 2575 or 2600 I think).

I have a 376 Steyr being screwed together by a member here, and I just sent an M70 off to become a trimmer H&H than my current 375.

I have no need for 3 375's (and im considering a 375 Whelen) but ya know? They're just fun and effective on anything. Bullet prices are pretty reasonable, and its not hard to find brass on classifieds. Lots of guys own and hunt with one but don't reload, so if you're patient you have a near endless supply of cheap Rem and Hornady brass.

So the REAL is, why haven't you posted pics of your new gun yet?

My mistake I was thinking of the 416 reduced load. The 375 uses a 200gr Sierra FN bullet.

Because your life as a rifleman will not be complete without one. It's neither too big for deer nor too small for elephant.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Need ain't got nothin to do with it.. You might enjoy it, & if the kids aren't going without, why not?

I had one for a few years & I'm glad I had the experience..

Most folk in North America don't need a 375.

Buy it and get it out of your system, same reason I got a .458win then after little while said' ta-ta' to it.. grin

10 yrs later I ordered the new release stainless classic M70 .375, picked it up and said I'm not carrying
that thing around, took a .338win instead no regrets.
