still not sure what this does that the 376 Steyr does not already do, except maybe have the Ruger name and endorsement.


Most importantly to me, it will come in a Ruger package...

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 is a 99% solution.

That and I think that more than likely the others and ammo mfgs will support this a bit better than the steyr. I can not recall ever seeing steyr ammo on the shelf.

I think it will beat out the RUM in sales, too. The RUM could not be chambered in rifles with a 3.4" magazine or .30-06 length action.

I'm thinking M77 RS. I hope it has the old sights. Oh and Stainless.

This case should taper more than a standard magnum 2.5 or 2.6 inch case, since it starts at the diameter of a conventional case's belt, rather than the body. If the .375 H&H has its reliability in part from the taper of the case, this one should be reliable too. If there is any advantage to a beltless case, this case has this second virtue too. I like the .376 Steyr and the .416 Taylor. When is the .416 Ruger going to be introduced? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I am not understanding the attraction to a "lighter" rifle with the same power as the 375HH. One of the incredible benifits of the old 375HH is that it's the most powerful rifle cartridge you can shoot for your investment in felt recoil.

So we lose that feature, The wonderful long taperd feed and extract case design, ammo available nearly anyplace you would want a rifle like this, the sloppy to unrealistic CRF function of Ruger rifles.

If you're really serious about spending the money on a rifle cartridge that will likely save your life, who picks this one over the old faithfull 100% reliable and 100 years of proven performance Holland and Holland?

On another note I have serious doubts that it will shoot a 270 grain bullet at 2800fps or a 300 at 2600fps without pressure issues. How are you going to get more powder in a case with less capacity? I would suggest it will meet original 375HH factory spec, but not what can be realized with handloads in that 375HH.

Now the upside is that Ruger will make money on this. It keeps them in business and we need every American rifle maker pumping out guns to stay afloat. For that I hope it sells like crazy. I want it to be a success and see great use across the globe. I'm just not believing all the Hype surrounding it right now. I suppose there are already too many little guns flooding the market. Why not go for the bigger ones.

Ruger is certainly the leader in new releases today. From the little 17 caliber up to the 458 Lott and several unique big bore handguns. I give them credit for the effort!


I absolutely had to bring this back to life. "Answer to a question no one is asking" hahaha now look at it.

It's also funny that people thought it was a necked up .300WM lol

Exactly. I've maintained from day-one that the .375 Ruger is a solution in search of a problem.

Don't agree... the .375 Ruger is an excellent cartridge of modern design principles. I have a Ruger M77 African rifle in .375 Ruger and a M77 Mark II Stainless rifle in .358/375 Ruger... I carry the latter a lot while guiding, loaded with 225 Accubond, it is a flat shooting, heavy hitter.

Both cartridges are great. Choose whichever is chambered in the rifle you want.

375 Ruger is readily available in South Africa.

"375 Ruger is readily available in South Africa."
AB please tell me specifically what retailers in South Africa carry Ruger 375 cartridges? I am asking in case my ammunition is waylaid travelling.

I agree, that the 375 Ruger is an excellent cartridge. I also think the 416 Ruger is an excellent one.
I have both, no regrets, and thoroughly enjoy using both.

Then it would surpass the ai versions of standard rounds and be close to or surpassing the belted mag version. Not sure here just pulling a wild guess.
