    Default Remington 700 XCR 375 H&H did it job.

    DSC_0071.jpg

    After taking my first Lion & Zebra with the Rem 375, I could not been happier with the way the round preformed. The Swift A frame 300 grain did their job and one shot was the ticket, I did add a couple on the lion just to make sure. Now I need a double lol

    Never had any doubt's biggun, Remington makes an amazing rifle. It's fantastic you took that beautiful Lion with a single bill (I'm guessing). Cannot congratulate you enough man.

    Congratulations on a fine looking cat! And why not get the double......I have been trying to think of a reason why you should not get one......and I just cant come up with one. So buy one!!!

    Hey Bigun did you ever get that video to post sure would like to see it. I bought a Remington 700 in a 375 H&H today Deb walked up behind me and said don't you dare just about 3 seconds after I clicked Buy it Now I haven't figured out how to tell her its to late. I know a lot of people don't care for the Remington 700 but I've found that the 700 in a 375 H&H has had some pretty good reviews.

    Mmmm bob i forgot to tell you i have looked after it so well i have worn it out also my wife doesnt know what rifles i have, as here and in the uk only the firearm licence holder can have access/know where the keys to the gun safe/room are. if the police found out any other person knew the keys whereabouts its reason to revoke your licence, and has been used in the past. they have been known to ask other family members if they know where the keys are in a non interested way, and if they say "oh yes" then bye bye licence and guns, and you would have a long fight to try and get the licence back and most likely you wouldnt.........

    It's a damn nice rifle, I have one and the stock soaks up recoil. At 7 1/2 with scope it kicks less than my 9 lb CZ 550 in 375 H&H. It shoots too! Congratulations!

    Looks like it did the job on that Bear, looks like the tag alder on Kodiak Island. Glad I got one hearing nothing but good so far.

    I always love seeing that pic colorado. If I remember correctly that was a very close range kill followed by a follow up in the thick stuff.

    Well that picture answers my question I was about to ask, yes the XCR in 375H&H does come with open sights.

    Very nice.
