.375 ruger

Postby skybuster20ga » Thu Jan 25, 2007 8:53 am

im a big bore fan and have several 350 mags and a few whelens but this new cartridge relly interests me. its too bad that ruger doesnt put the new 20" barrell in a wood stock. Also, remington should throw it in something similar to the model 7 only long action w/ a 20 " pipe

I just can't get too worked up over the .375 Ruger. If you take the inital writer's BS out of it with 200+ fps over the H&H, and see what most people are getting, it does the exact same thing as the 'ol grandpappy .375 H&H. Besides action legnth difference, and figuring what cost of brass is...think I would stick with the H&H.

However, a Model 7 in .375 would be a really great gun.

i agree that it is very similar, the cost of brass doesnt bother me too bad since i reload, just getting your first batch of brass then your all set. i dont see it as a cartridge that you would shoot all the time. i like odd or less popular cartridges like the 350 mag and things but reading about the 375 it is just an interesting caliber and since i dont have a H&H i would probably buy one.........not a big ruger fan though spite the fact i have a bunch.
