To be honest H/F, my Model 700 classic in 375 H&H doesn't weigh any more than say, a 7mm magnum in the same gun...Kicks more though ...I shot a couple of doe with it and it doesn't put any larger hole in them than a 30-06, but it does lift them up off of the ground and flip them around sometimes.hunt/fish365 said:My biggest concern with a gun like that is shear weight.
Bullet weights( handloading )for the .375 range from 210gr Barnes X to 350gr Barnes TSX and LOTS of weights in between from various other manufacturers. One of my favorite bullets is the Speer 235gr SP. It shoots as flat as the 180gr '06 and does not ruin meat on deer sized animals. Recoil is not at all bad with that bullet and while grossly over-gunned, I'd take a whack at groundhogs with it just for practice.6-DASHER said:a standard .300 win mag will kill just as good, and you can use it for deer, bear, groundhog's or target shooting at a fraction of the cost..I wonder how many of use are going to buy $75-$100 dollar boxes of shells..even reloading would be costly for .375 caliber bullets and the choices would be limited, not much practice at those costs fer sure
