They started showing more and more in inventory pretty much after I bought mine. Just seemed like every time I had the money for one the inventory dried up. I have had mine for a few months now. I think I may try to buy one in the future but for right now I am still happy with the deal I got on my rifle.

My .375 is the .375 Ruger. Seemed like every time I tried to get one of the Vanguard rifles in .375 H&H they were sold out. I was trying to find the least expensive route for a .375 and my Mossberg Patriot was on sale at Buds for something like $320 or $330 before transfer. I like it but my scope slipped in my rings.
I really really want to get dies. There is so much potential with the .375 whether in the H&H,Ruger,Remington Ulta or Wetherby(378). I was surprised that I shot a whole box on my bench and still had use of my right side. The .375 isnít that bad at all.
Congrats on your purchase cause you were one of the lucky ones to find and purchase one of the Vanguard rifle in .375 H&H.

What about all the ones already out there?

What I meant was since there are so many out there do you think they will be turned in or destroyed in huge numbers? Should of maybe ceased production and grandfathered the ownership.

Congratulations. Everybody needs a .375. Why? Just because. ;D

Congrats, if I ever pry my .257 out of my neighbors hands I may use it on deer also. He loves it and says if he would ever miss something or put a bad shot on a deer it would be his fault not the rifle. He says its a laser. Considering he is Amish itís funny hearing him say itís like a laser.

I have a both also. My neighbor uses my Vanguard and he loves it. I have shot some really small groups with it too. It isnít picky on what you put in it either. When I started handloading for it I had a hard time finding what shot good because all of the loads for it shot really good. I settled on loads that are pretty warm just because. Vanguard rifles are a real good rifle.

That loads that I used with the Great Plains bullet ainít for recoil shy people. I actually recovered one bullet and it was the size of a Quarter. That deer was actually small which surprised me when I recovered the bullet. They create a lot of knock down power.

Chris: Have you ever tried Buffalo bullets in your TC .54 ?

I have got it done a couple times with the Great Plains bullet which is 425 grains and pushed it with 120 grains of FFFg Goex and then 100 grains of FFFg Goex Ole Eyesford which seems to burn hotter.
Do they even make the Buffalo bullets anymore?

Very sorry to hear this. I would keep the boat.

Saw a few deer but no shot. Since I have roundballs loaded I donít want to shoot too far out. One was prolly close enough but just didnít have a good shot.
