      Good day Lomadelray

      I read that you had your rifle's barrel chopped off at 18"... I have a Mod 70 375H&H with a 22" barrel and am contemplating on having it shortened to 20" or even 18". With your experience of hunting with a shortened rifle, would you recommend that I do it or rather shop for a factory built rifle with a short barrel?
      I thank you for sharing your experience with me.

      Regards
      Boela.

        I think any gunsmith would shorten and recrown for a couple hundred bucks. So I YES! I say shorten it.

        I have considered chopping a 375 to 20", not sure if I would go 18" though; muzzle blast might be getting a little extreme at that point. But I just prefer a shorter barrel when hunting thick bush.

        One caveat, if that is a mint pre-64 model 70, I would keep it as is, otherwise I would shorten it. Hope this helps!
