    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...

    CZ 550 In 375 H&H With Aramid Stock For Sale

    Hello there! I'm looking for a .375 HH for a trip later this year. The CZ has gotten good reviews from other members on this site. However the one that I had a chance to shoot didn't feel quite comfortable to me. Unfortunately I cannot remember the exact model though it had a very substantial...

    Yes it was! Fine handling rifle.

    Best rifle for Namibia?

    I believe you are correct. The .375 is a great caliber and would make a fine all- round rifle for Africa. I used one provided by my ph years ago in Botswana and found it to be not only very capable but also surprisingly pleasant to shoot. Interestingly enough it was manufactured about 35 miles...

    Best rifle for Namibia?

    Hello all. I'm headed to Namibia in September for some plainsgame but am focusing on eland and giraffe. Any suggestions for best calibers for these species? I don't currently own anything larger than a 30.06 and am perfectly content with that rifles performance. However I'd really like to not...

    That may be what we end up doing. I've flown from Atlanta but arrived in the evening. Has anyone here have any experience flying to Windhoek through Europe?

    Namibia flights

    I'm planning to fly from the northeast, most likely New York, to Windhoek Namibia in September. It might be wishful thinking but I'd like to avoid spending the night in Joberg if possible. It's not a deal breaker but I didn't have the most pleasant experience last time. There is a non stop out...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Has Anyone Hunted With Bandur Hunting Safaris?

    I met up with Pieter from Bandur Hunting Safaris in SA at the SCI show last year and was intrigued with his operation. Does anyone have any experience hunting with him? I am interested in taking my wife who also hunts but is not so keen on traveling out of the country. Thanks in advance for any...
