.375RUM any good for LR hunting?

Anyone shooting a .375 RUM long range?
Just wondering what sort of rig you are running?

Also what load and velocity you are getting?

Should put a big hole in an animal!

Re: .375RUM any good for LR hunting?

I consider it a good medium range gun. The best thing it is good for is knocking the snot out of you. I have one in an XCR im a big guy and its a punisher. I probably wouldnt buy another. To answer your question no i dont think its a good long range gun. put a 338rum barrel on it
