    Shoot your iron sights till you are 100 percent sure of sight picture and confident. That could take 5shots or 500. If Murphy's law takes over you'll still be ready I'm a big believer in quick detach mounts and low power scopes. Money no object tally mounts and savarski. Cheers

    Velo,some folks might say your an evil Bastard but I doubt the choice of Optics has anything to do with it.

    I have an old Bausch & Lomb Balvar 3-9x42 on my BRNO. Where I used to hunt it was fairly open so the 3-9 made sense. I would think a lot would depend on the area you are hunting. Heavy cover I might choose a 1-4x20 with a German #4 reticle. Mixed cover I would agree with previous posters about a 2-8. Depends on you feel comfortable with.

    Swarovski 1-6x with lighted circle dot reticle mounted in set of quick release mounts. you don't need more than 6x for anything a 375 will do and you only want 1-2x for hunting DG in close. If budget isn't a swaro then go with the Leupold. You don't need a lot of magnification to get the job done with sensible ranges of a 375.

    congrats on purchasing a great rifle & caliber! have a leupold 1.5-5x20 on a 375 h&h. great for close up & have shot animals with it 200+ yds. initially thought with only 5x magnification a 200 +/- yd shot might be an issue - but it was not.

    My M70 .375 wears a Leupold 1.5x5x20 w/German#4 reticle and Warne QD rings. Works like a charm. However, I am considering changing it out for a Leupold 2x7 or 2.5x8.

    IMHO the best choice is the one you are most comfortable with and suited to the job you want it to do.

    My .375, a Whitworth Express wears a Leupold VX3i 2.5-8 with a post & duplex reticle, I would make the same choice again.

    Ultimately, I think it comes to the distance & game.

    Leupold VX6 2-12 with red dot. A top quality, extremely versatile scope. It's what I have on my .375 Ruger and I can't imagine anything being better.

    +1 on the Leupold VX6 2-12. I have two .375 H&H's and have the same scope on both. Versatile enough to do anything anywhere.

    I put a Trijcon 1-6 with a single post on my Sako 375. I am putting a Leupold VX5 1-5 on my Merkel 9.3x62.... I don't usually shoot beyond 200 yards with either and have not felt handicapped...

    Well done, great choice on the rifle. I have the model 70 in 375 H&H also.. Topped off with a 2.5x 8 Leupold and QD mounts. Have killed two elk here in Colorado one at 40 yards and one at 350 yards. That variable scope really made the difference.
    Best of luck with the new rifle

    Spot on. Great deals to be had on the VX6. I equipped my .375 with a VX6, 2x6 with fire dot reticle.....very happy with it thus far.

    I had a 1.5X5 Leupold, now a 2.5X8. I'm getting older and need more magnification for longer, more precise shots!!

    I fitted an old Zeiss Diavari, 3-9x36 on my Browning. I found it perfect for the terrain I was hunting in.
