    375 H&H --- Awesome for dangerous game in North America. Including the biggest, baddest bears that roam the great white north -- :yes

    Second choice 338 Win.

    I havn't hunted moose or bear but have shot a few things in the Selous with a 375 h and h.

    You can find ammo anywhere and it is relatively cheap to shoot. You be spending $7 to $10 a pop on 416 Remmy factory loads.

    The 375 h and h kick is more like a push. My 7mm mag kicks harder IMO.

    My furthest shot with a 375 h and h was 200 yards with no problems. My eyes aren't good enough for 300+yd shots.

    Win M 70 are back in production and they make a 375 h and h at a little over a grand. Probably make a stainless one too.

    My father in law shot moose, grizz and the like with an '06 with no problems.

    '06 and 375 h and h both have a 100 year history of doing the job.

    Zebra taken at 260m, with .375H&H 270gr TSX over 75.5gr RL15

    Kudu, first shot 160m, kill shot just a tad over 400m same load. Why it didn't go down with the first shot, neither I nor the PH could figure out, but he didn't.

    So yes, the .375H&H is an all-around cartridge.

    .338 Lapua with Bergers , there is so much data out there for great loads , if you see a griz or a moose @1000 yd

    well you don't have to worry about letting him walk .

    and the griz would never know who to chase if he was wounded:l

    with a good break it kicks like a .308 to me BUT the blast is real BAD :cool:

    I see Ruger has come up with their own version of the .375 but in a shorter case. That would be my upper limits of what I think is needed in NA.

    Nice Safari Photo's!

    To hunt anywhere in the world all you need is a 30/06 and a 375 H&H.:)
