The 375 H&H with the 260gr accubond has 2000 ft/lbs of energy @ 475 yds.
The 375 RUM with the same bullet has 2000 ft/lbs of energy @ 675 yds.

The H&H produces 2000 ft/lbs of energy at 425 yds with the 300 gr bullet.
and the 375 RUM produces 2000 ft/lbs at 550 with the 300 gr bullet.

Drop with 260gr- H&H= 130" @ 675 yrds.
RUM=99" @ 675 yrds.

Drop with 300gr- H&H= 89" @550 yrds.
RUM= 72" @ 550 yrds.

If the shots are all going to be less than 100 yrds then it doesent matter except
when confronted by a large brown bear intent on ruining your day then an extra
1000 ft/lbs of energy @ 100 yrds could improve the odds.

Assuming a moose weighs 1500 lbs the H&H is recomended to 125 yrds the RUM
will have the same energy @ 275 yrds.

With that said you be the judge as to what you want to hunt with.

I dunno .375 H&H has been used for dangerous game in Africa for over 100 years...

Re: 375HH mag or 375 ultramag?

Hello from Tok Alaska
I have a Remington Custom Shop 375 RUM I use it for everything I hunt.
This rifle is as good as it gets.
I use Remington ammunition only in 300 Grain.
My last Caribou was shot at 614 yards. I have never used more then 1 round to drop my game..
I have never had anything get up from this round and the majority of my shots are well over 500 yards.
For my dollar this is the best of the best in the 375 type rifle
