Re: 375 ruger
I have the ruger, I like the ruger alaskan rifle platform and from everything I read the 375 ruger isn't going away anytime soon. Mine is quite accurate. My only use for it would be on black bear unless I become 10-15 years younger and hit the lottery then it will go to alaska. I have not shot any game with it as I have it less than a year. I'm just a rifle fan, what's need got to do with it???. Life is too short for practicality where guns are concerned. Recoil? The ruger is a heavy gun, a lot depends on the weight and stock, recoil pad, etc. It is not a gun you want to shoot a bunch of rounds from the bench, nor is any other big bore. I shoot my other guns enough that when I get behind the 375 I can put 5 rounds where I want them, end of story. My take is if you can shoot a 12 gauge you can shoot a 375. The h&h I shot a few years back kicked more, but it was a lighter gun. I say go for the ruger!
