Stainless steel does not mean that it will not rust it means that it will not rust even remotely as fast as blued carbon steels if you do nothing to them they are going to rust...

and it's easy to maintain them after cleaning I spray on then wipe off/dry a product called Sheath from I believe Birchwood this coats the metal and displaces moisture.

The Alaskan isn't SS like my other Ruger M77 in .243 - and therefore the Alaskan rusted nearly instantly LOL. It has some kind of coating on it, I called them a long time ago and asked but forget the details. I was disappointed regardless, it is an Alaskan after all, so why not make it a good stainless?

Re: 375 ruger bullet choice

I didn't get a chance to go last year but on May 12 I am heading out for a week and hope to get lucky. Last year I did go caribou hunting and posted the results in the trophy photos section.

I also haven't had time to do much shooting with my 375 ruger so I am not confident with it yet. This year I plan on sticking with my 338L since I know when I pull the trigger I will hit what I am aiming at. The 375 was shooting ok with the accubonds but I have had poor luck using them on other animals so I don't know if I will stick with them for the 375. Granted, everything I shot was hit where I aimed and I got my animal but I wasn't impressed by the bullet performance. I plan on going to barnes if they shoot well in my rifles.

Here's some of the bullets I've been working with from my .375 H&H:


Sierra's 300 gr SPBT, on the far right, has also been very accurate and I've heard good things about them on game, even Cape Buff.
It's back a bit, and not long range, but I stumbled on the picture, and got curious. What's your cast load Guy M ? Thanks!

Yo Bro (Partisan1911) - two weeks and counting and we will be stalking the big brownies. Lets see if we can keep our hunt record alive. Bring the Lapua, we know it will knock down the critters.

I know I'm way late, but these two 260 ABs were taken out of a bull elk at 240 yards. First shot was quartering away. Hit him high on the ham and found it under the hide on the far offside shoulder. The shot didn't tip him over right away, and we were hunting some really steep ground. He turned broadside and I put one through both shoulders. I found it on the offfside as well. Very little meat damage.
I also shot a spike with them at 30 yards running right at me. Rolled him, and no bloodshot at all.

Don't overlook Ramshot Big Game in the 375 R. Believe I use 81.5 gr, and before my stock cracked (african) it shot .5 MOA.
