This is very wise advice.There’s good reason why the 375 H&H is so popular worldwide- it simply works. Whilst my favourite buffalo rifle is a 458 Lott because it hits harder and I feel more confident tackling bigger game with it, it actually doesn’t kill things any deader. What kills big game best is good bullets properly placed. The 375 is easy to carry and shoot in a lightweight rifle, and if your ammo doesn’t arrive as happened to me in Mozambique you will be able to find some locally. And it’s versatile, capable of taking a wide range of game very efficiently.
However, as Steve knows, as he also has a 375 Weatherby and has shot mine, they definitely hit harder with a 300g doing 2850fps or so.
My 375 Bee started life as a New Haven Classic Stainless in 375 H&H, the same day it arrived, I re-chambered it to 375 Weatherby and had the reamer cut to .500” freebore. This allows an additional 100fps in most instances due to extra case capacity allowances.
It weighs 10lbs, wears a HS Precision Sporter stock and a compact 2-7x32 scope. The original factory barrel has been lapped, it was very good to start with, but this improved it some.
My custom 416 Rigby weighs only 9lbs, but recoil is not an issue.
This thing just hammers everything it touches.
