Re: And then there was 1.........
I'm inclined to believe that. Some folks make fun of the notion,but if you can shoot one accurately,the 375 H&H is a wonderful chambering. A friend of mine bought a M70 375 H&H a couple years ago on a whim. You know,it isn't that bad. Oh it kicks a bit,but my 300 RUM with the 200gr pills "Feels" worse. I have always been convinced the Remington BDL, though a beautiful stock, is far from ideal when it comes to recoil. My M70 300 Winchester mag "feels" better than my wife's BDL 270. At least on this old body anyway.
I wouldn't count out any of the 338 rounds,wildcat or factory, for an all around rig. I have even given thought to the 325 WSM. Not too practical, but a stout little package. I know folks like to stay with the over the counter chamberings, should you forget or loose your ammo. If I'm going to spend 30 or so hours in the truck seat getting to my Elk hunting destination, I'm going to be relatively sure that the ammo is in the truck. The airlines are another matter. I have flown once with a rifle. They lost it for one day. It arrived about 2:00 in the afternoon of the first days hunt. I borrowed a Kimber from my hunting companion and off we went to the brush. Actually,it was the only time I have had a chance to use a Kimber, lol.
