Certainly, I have. I just think they balance the gun out better for me. It had nothing to do with speed or accuracy. I look at my 10/22 Ruger, it's super accurate, but kinda hard to hold still. Then I look at my Win Super Grade 7mm Rem Mag, it's accurate too, but I also find it balances well too. Part of it is the weight too, I don't mind a heavy gun as long as we are not going sheep hunting.Have you tried the shorter barrels?
I'm in the same boat of choosing which rifle to buy (although my caliber choice is a bit different) for me it would come down to ammo availability. Which could you get more easily "In Country" if your airline separates your rifle from your ammo, it wouldn't be the ruger. Frankly, it makes me nervous buying rifles chambered in proprietary rounds. Granted the holland & Holland was at one point a proprietary cartridge, but it has long since graduated to the widely available category.....the jury is still out on the ruger. Who knows wether the round will even still be loaded in a few years. Truck loads of new chamberings have come and gone over the years that the 375H&H has been with us.
I agree, common calibers...ammo can be found. What can go wrong....DOES. Especially with that stupid law that ammo must be a seperate piece of luggage.
And Matt is correct Ruger components, higher priced and less availability.
Sorry to hear that you have experienced lost ammo on a trip to Africa. What airline?
