Hey Gang

I too havenít seen many people who have reviewed one, but itís an S2 Vanguard, so itís almost guaranteed to be a shooter. What are you getting after with the 375 H&H?

it was just to good of a deal to pass. always wanted a 375h&h and decided it was time to own one. if my 340 takes a year off it might go moose hunting with me.

.375 H&H is great for Asian Water buffalo.. Maybe a trip down under for a trophy bull would be a good excuse to use that rifle  ;)

Closiest I have to it is a Howa 375 Ruger.A heavy push not sharp recoil with max loads.Muzzle rise is another thing.It was a wild child. ;D I ended up putting a brake on it and it is now a pleasure to shoot even off the bench.Sure you will like it.

Thought I would update the post and let everyone know my rifle arrived and I am extremely happy with fit and finish. I have almost $200 less than msrp invested in this rifle and its guaranteed to shoot moa. Haven't had a chance to get out and shoot it yet (ice fishing has been at its best) but I don't really have any concerns. Maybe there is but what else can you buy in this chambering and quality for that kind of money. BB it would be a pleasure to have a beer with you Roger and Chris after a day of buffalo hunting!

He wouldnít know what to do with a redneck from Indiana and Texas/Arkansas.  I am still searching for one in .375 H&H.

Now the first thing you do, is send it back to Weatherby, and have them ream it into a 375 Wby and then you will have a real 375  ::)  :D  You should not have no problem getting it to shoot well, I have never had any 375 H&H shoot poorly, it's a well behaved caliber.  8)
