I built my bench using three brackets like this one. Got a friend to weld them. For the stand up bench, I bought three longer threaded pipes to get it to chest height, use the shorter legs for sitting bench. No picture of it put together.

I bought a Kimber Caprivi in 375 H&H in 2015. I took it to Zimbabwe and killed my buff with it, as well as several heads of plains game. I took it again this past August and killed a second buff and my wife killed her Rowland Ward class wildebeest with it.

I found the stock of the Caprivi fits me very well. It is heavier than the 90’s era M70 I had (briefly) prior to purchasing the Kimber, and it fits me much better. I have out about 800 rounds thru it according to my reload records. It has become my one of my favorite rifles, and I have taken it on Texas hog hunts and deer hunts as well.

I had a Tiger 375 African prior to 2015, but didn’t trust the stock to hold up after reading of other guys’ rifles cracking. The Caprivi is a more robust stock and the action is glass smooth.

My father and I picked up a pair of Caprivi’s in .375. We shot them a bunch and then took them to Zimbabwe in 2012. They performed flawlessly. Mine loved the Barnes Xs. Took animals from 50 yards out to 250yards on a Wildebeest. They are slimmer then the Model 70 which I owned at the same time. I really like them. They were both topped with Leopld 2.5x8s. I never had issues with it and really enjoyed carrying it everyday. My first shot on the buff was actually with the .375 until I followed up with the .500NE for grins. I wouldn’t hesitate to pick one up.
