Re: 0-500 yard accurate THUMPER
I am hearing a fair amount about the 375 H&H and I think it may be in my future at some point. Thanks for the load information, I'll save it. I have a hard time with the 338 wm because I already have a 338 lapua and I want a lighter more woodsy type gun. For what I'd shoot at longer range is primarily whitetail and maybe Black bear in the 300+ range. It seems to me that shooting a Brown bear past 300 does take a bigger thumper so I will have to adjust my thinking on that. I'm starting to think that a Grizzly is probably a 200 yard shot at max and if that's the case than a 375 H&H is more realistic, especially if it doesn't go down quickly. the closer you get probably the easier it is to kill. But then you have the risk of it being closer too. I'm still going to hunt one and I'll have a guide I'm sure, so for that the 375 H&H will have to be in the collection.
I still like the 338-06 for a woods gun, hogs, black bear and whitetail at a distance. I think the 338 bullet selection favors it over the Whelen.
