    Shims on bases?

    Anyone using shims on their bases? I’m having a heck of a time raising the elevation on my M70.

    .375 HH Ammunition availability

    I placed an order with Target Sports USA. They had Barnes in stock and are located less than an hour from my house. I’ll call them later this morning and ask about pickup. Thanks again for all of the advice

    .375 HH Ammunition availability

    Unfortunately Midway is the company I had the issue with. When I called customer service to speak to a representative about why my orders were canceled they told me it was a 14 minute wait for the next available agent. Unacceptable and disappointing

    .375 HH Ammunition availability

    I’m quickly approaching my Namibia hunt and have been doing some shooting in preparation. However I’m having difficulty finding a reliable source of ammo here in southern New England. Not only did I visit my local Cabela’s but also made a fairly substantial order of last minute gear and ammo...

    Winchester M70 .375H&H optics/mounts

    I spoke to the nice folks at Talley in North Carolina this morning and they were extremely helpful. They have bases in stock with the appropriate rear dimensions. I can’t order rings until I figure out which scope to put on it. I like the Leupold and Vortex. Both have mid range options that will...

    Winchester M70 .375H&H optics/mounts

    Shootist!!! That’s exactly my issue. I’ve been to Cabela’s twice. Can’t seem to match up the rear holes. The receiver has a cut out to accept the length of the cartridge. It would appear I’d need to make sure the scope would have enough tube length as well. What did you end up using for a scope?

    Winchester M70 .375H&H optics/mounts

    I ve narrowed my choice of scope for my new to me Winchester M70 .375H&H. Now I’m realizing that there are so many choices for mounts and rings that I need so expert advice. Do I start with the bases and move to the rings? I’ve already been up to Cabela’s and walked out without rings or mounts...

    Want To Buy .375 H&H

    I'm not sure if I need to start another thread but since I've got the rifle purchased I just need to find a gunsmith to put some finishing touches to it. When Winchester was still in New Haven CT they had a custom shop but not any more. Any recommendations for a good quality gunsmith to add...

    Want To Buy .375 H&H

    Thanks for the links. I'll check them out. Hopefully I can find an owner that knows his rifle inside and out but no longer needs or possibly has upgraded it.

    Want To Buy .375 H&H

    I'm looking for a .375 H&H for an upcoming hunt in the fall is 2019. It doesn't have to be a work of art as all of my rifles have been purchased (and used) as tools. However it does need to be in good working condition. The closer to New England the better but will consider all. A neighbor is a...
