I’m super pumped about the 375 H&H I just got from a TBH member. I’ve wanted one for many years. Those nilgai are going to be hurting big time !!

That's a mans rifle right there. Probably kicks like a three legged ninja. Congrats

Actually, they don't kick too bad. It is more of a push in my opinion. I have a Winchester Model 70 built in 1965 and it is not bad at all to shoot. Great caliber for the big, big game.

Nice! I sure liked the looks of that when I saw it.

I have a blued Model 70. Recoil's not bad. Especially if you shoot it standing. Stay seated upright on the bench. It's when you lay over and get low on the bench or get prone that it'll bite ya.

X2 on the looks, congratulations, that is a very nice rifle.

Also X2 on the ďlay over and get low on the bench or get proneĒ shooting of this rifle. This will provide a powerful demonstration of Mr. Newton's ďfor every action, there is an equal and opposite reactionĒ law, along with a sore shoulder. Again, that is just a cool rifle, good luck with it.

I didn't know bolt guns had a "Hammer".







But do wish I had one like that~!


I was told by a Manitoba Constable that the .375 was an every day gun in Canada. Kinda like 06' and 7mag are down here.

You have to shoot some hogs in the head and let us see the results.

I've got one on a Mauser action and it doesn't push.

Recoil not as bad as a 300 mag. Shot one in Africa last year and nice round. Surprised the recoil was as light, more of a shove than being punched like a mag.

The recoil of the 375H&H isnt bad at all. It's not till you step up to the 378 Wby it starts to tingle. Sold the 378 but still have and use the ol H&H round. Settled on a 270gr Barnes TXS and Nosler's 260 gr Accubond.

Sweet rifle, I have no input on the 375 H&H, as I have never shot one. I believe that is one of the most desired ones to have with the control round feed, not to mention the Winchesters are beautiful. Happy hunting.

Not sure about the H & H but I do have a 375 Ruger in the African Model, It's manageable but a bit more then a shove

They got the "Shove" out of a gun magazine.

That brings back some memories. My brother let me borrow his deer hunting one time. He didn’t tell me it was sighted at 75 yards and how much it dropped. I belly shot the buck of my lifetime at 160 yds. Heart breaker. Enjoy the thumper!

Mine is a blued Winchester M70. The recoil isn't bad, but I don't shoot it much now that I'm in my 70s.

I had great performance from the 270gr Barnes LRX in my 375 Weatherby.



And echoing some responses above: I can shoot this gun all day off shooting sticks, but laying prone or bent over a bench isnít more than a couple shots before Iím done.

You must have **** the 300 in a light gun off a bench and the 375 off sticks lol. Shoot both off a bench and report back

375 off a bench sucks. Itís not bad off sticks!


Glad you bought that OP. I was wanting it bad.

375 H&H off a bench flat out kicks, no shoving involved.

300 win mag is a ***** cat compared to the 375.

I have a 2 die set of Redding .375 H&H Loudenboomer dies that I will never use again since I sold my Tropical. Might have a few reloading bullets too in my stash.
