You'll like your Ruger, I love mine. Keep your eyes open for a donor action then go with a LH build. I mean, you can't have too many .375's can you?

I've got one of each, both a 375 ultra in a remmy LSS and a 375 Ruger Alaskan. I handload for both and I'll honestly rather shoot the Ruger than the ultra mag off the bench. Both loads are hot, and they both make little rocks out of big rocks, but that 8.5lb ultra mag is brutal.
I shot the ultra mag 12-14 rounds about a month ago, trying to get a 600 yard drop chart worked up. The day after, I wasn't hitting on all cylinders.
I agree with your 458 comment, as both are stout and I shoot them often. I've unleashed a few rounds from dads 416 Rigby in a #1 Ruger... thats in a different ball field. I actually had to crawl back up to the bags after I touched off each round.
