.375 Ruger - Anyone have one?

Hey All. Looking for opinions on a .375 Ruger. I have the itch to get a big caliber and was liking the ballistics of this one. THANKS

Re: .375 Ruger - Anyone have one?

I've shot one and really unless you have a need to have that kind of power and expense of owning and shooting one.. lots of power for sure but you don't need that kind of power in pa..they are big bangers for sure, fun to shoot free hand but not off the bench. You might be better of with a .338 WM.. but it haint no picnic either..however you gotta love them for a shoot or two!

I enjoyed touching off the .338's I owned. Something about a BIG BANG.

375 ruger is in my list, almost bought one earlier this year. Maybe next year since the gun money just got used up for this year.

Re: .375 Ruger - Anyone have one?

I was really leaning twards the .375 Ruger for my (long range, big critter rifle). I just happened to settle on the .338 RCM. The .375 Ruger is on my short list, but the only thing I could think of hunting outside of africa that I could want more power than the .338 RCM would be brown bear, and even then the .338 would work.

I'd love to shoot one. I've shot a .375 H&H and it's no joke off a bench. There will be a lot of recoil there, but I don't find the .375 HH as sharp of recoil as a .338WM. Bullet wise... I'd bet you could take deer with the .375 Ruger just fine, and get practice for the big critter hunt.

i prefer the h&h, but you cant go far wrong with a 375 of any make.

Load some 235 gr. Speers in the .375 flavor of your choice and you have a superb deer rifle.

My choice is....... well ......... rather obvious.

Re: .375 Ruger - Anyone have one?

I ended up with a pair of them....the African and the Alaskan. Both easily shoot factories into an inch and a half at 100....

A person needs to be comfortable shooting big rifles or should avoid...
