I have a two gun battery for Africa and the world; a Pre-64 Model 70 .375 H&H, and a matching Pre-64 Model 70 .300 H&H. Their name are, of course, Harris and Henry, respectively.

The .458 Lott #1 is "The Businesswoman," for her conservatively attractive looks and no nonsense approach.
The .375 H&H #1 is "The Lovely Lady," for her beautiful stock, finish and better manners than the Lott.
The .375 H&H M70 is "Big Bertha," for the length of the action, barrel and generally larger appearance than my other rifles.

All fantastic calibers richly deserved of their names Forrest!!

It has been a while and my addiction has been fed some more:

Bolts:
.500 MDM Wildcat
.458 B&M Wildcat
.416 B&M Wildat
.375 H&H McMillian Heritage (safe queen).

Double Rifles:
Heym .500 NE
VC .450 NE
Heym 9.3x74R to be regulated with a scope (on order due end of May).

Next Africa hunt in August, 2021 is a double rifle hunt. Taking .500 NE for buffalo and elephant and the 9.3x74R for plains game (bait) and leopard. If somehow the 9.3x74R doesn't make it in time then it will be .458 B&M going to Africa instead.

A good friend of mine has a M70 300 H&H that he is intent on having rebarrelled to 375H&H. He says that would be his "big" gun. When he talks the corners of my mouth reflexively inch up as I try to avoid showing a smile. I see myself about 35 years ago doing the same thing and saying to myself: there, that gives me a rifle suitable for any big game on Earth. HA!!, since that time there have been rifles added: 375 Wby, 375 RUM, 404 Jeffery, 458 Win Mag and the most recent addition 470 NE double rifle. At present I figure the 470 will probably be final, but there isn't a law against the possibility of a 500, 577 or even 600 so who knows?

All I can do is warn my friend that getting a 375 H&H is just the First step down the big bore addiction road and is certainly not the last.

I have a Winchester Safari Express in 375HH for a possible trip to Africa but only have a Colt Sauer in 270 Winchester for a second gun. I need to work on the second gun :)
I have a friend looking to sell a 300RUM.
It's a Rem 700 stainless with black synthetic stock.
At 300 yards...~2500 lb-ft of energy and ~2500 fps.
I'd call it a bit of an upgrade from a 270WIN.
PM me if you are interested.

Anyone who has stood up behind anything from a 416 Rigby with 400 grain factory loads on up without a healthy amount of respect is either a damned fool or a liar or both.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
