I bought a new butt pad, trigger and detachable rings for it and waiting for the right scope to mount on it. Right now my primary hunting rifle load development has taken priority so I havent put much time into her.
That sounds like some outstanding accuracy out of that gun. Did you do anything to modify the rifle? How was is the recoil with it? What scope did you put on it? I have yet to shoot mine but I am curious of your initial impressions of the 375 Ruger African?
This Ruger shoots great with everything I have loaded for it. I also saw good accuracy with H4350 with 260 gr Accubonds, and 235 gr TSX.
I have installed a decent recoil pad, glass bedded the recoil lug and had another crossbolt placed in the pistol grip to keep the stock from cracking around the rear tang. I also placed some wood sealer under the barrel to help decrease moisture damage. I plan on having it teflon coated this summer to add a little extra durability to the metal when i'm in a salt water environment.
I did all of the mods to help protect the rifle from the elements not to improve the way it shoots. It shot just as well in factory form.
The scope is a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x40.
