When I decided to build a .30 cal, I wanted to do something a bit different so I decided on a 300H&H, figuring it would compliment my 375 H&H nicely. Well, after a long year, it finally showed up in the mail this week. I haven't shot it yet but hope to get out soon. The paint job was inspired by a kudu hide and goes nicely with the zebra theme on the 375!

My friend, that is one cool looking rifle (and that is from one of the old school walnut clan). Love it when artistic flair finds its way into an extremely practical thing like an all-weather rifle. And the 300 H&H is one of the world's truly great calibers. I am bitterly jealous! Who did the work?

Well let's get that pop gun to the range! We need a full report! Bet it's going to be fun to shoot!

M70 action? Can't quite tell, but a beauty. Will you be hand loading for it?

I'm not a fan of painted/camp stocks at all, but dang that looks good!

Congrats and well done on the design.

I will have to make it unanimous! I love that caliber and the rifle is very well done! What will you use it for first?

Awhile back I bought some Rcbs dies and a good amount of new brass for 300 H&H on the discount table at my local reloading/gun shop. Now I just need the rifle. Hoping to come across one someday. Beautiful rifle. Looking forward to the range report :)

And another walnut guy who has to applaud what you have done. An all round great looking package in a classic cartridge.

It's the new CRF action from Defiance. I will eventually be handloading but will break it in with some Hornady Custom ammo. I suspect I may have to watch it make its first kill. Vanessa drew an antelope tag here in Alberta and she figures that would be a great way to break it in.

Keep in touch. I've got two pre-64 M70's in .300H&H and still not have in earnest started load development on them.

Like many of the others, walnut is king with me, but I like this one!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice
