Let's Talk About The .375 H&H
 
I bought a rifle in .375 H&H not long ago for shooting Nilgai. I found out that it works very well on whitetail deer too though it is over kill lol. Does a real number on hogs too. :D

This rifle doesn't kick as bad as my .270 Weatherby, it's more of a push than a kick, and is firing a 250 grain TBBC bullet at some speed with a lot of punch. I really like shooting it and will start loading for it soon.

Anyone else like the .357 H&H?

I was never exposed to it until I hunted in Africa last year. I became a fan pretty quickly. It seems as though Americans love light and fast while the African guys prefer big and slow. I guess each had its place but it's hard to argue with the success of the .375 in Africa. I made shots out to 250 yards with my PH's CZ in .375 shooting 300 grain TSX and everything was DRT. The CZ 550 in .375 will probably be my next rifle purchase. It's a very versatile caliber. I would bet that nilgai hate it!

I have a Blaser with three barrels (interchangeable).
.223
7mm mag
375 H&H

After three shots with the .375 .... I have had enough.
I purchased it for Africa and it did its job.

I started loading 375 H&H for a friend of mine, and now I have the bug, I want one.

Ok let's talk.... OUCH!!!!

LOL. All joking aside, I haven't shot one, but I did have the .300 H&H Mag, and although not as much recoil, it was a "push" also (not a sharp recoil). So I think I know what you mean when you say push. My buddy's boy got a .300 Mag a couple years ago when he was 14. He said he "Loves the way it pushes me back about a foot when shooting from a lying position." LOL.

If I had to have one caliber it would be a .375 H&H. Duiker to elephant. Saying that, I love my 470 Nitro.

My LGS has a near perfect condition M77 in .458 Win Mag. I coonfinger it every time I go in there. Bigger is better. Right...?

I have a Sako 85 Safari in a 375 H&H and it loves the Nosler Customs in a Partition. Fun to shoot with the pigs and Nilgai hate it

I didn't find the recoil near as punishing as a lightweight .300 Win Mag. Most safari grade rifles chamebered in .375 will be over 8lbs. This helps a bunch. Now the .470 NE in a double rifle is a whole different creature. Punishing at both ends!
