First I'll say that I have zero experience with Sako rifles but havent heard anything but good. Second, I have zero experience with the caliber. That being said, I am a gun lover and am officially hooked after my first trip to Africa this past summer. There is no doubt I will return, the question is only when and how many times. First trip was what I would consider a pretty standard plains game hunt with nothing larger than Kudu being taken. I am sure future hunts will include some larger animals though. The three animals I am certain to hunt at some point in the future are sable, eland, and buffalo. I realize the .300 WM I carried on my first trip would be sufficient for the above other than the buffalo, but am becoming somewhat stuck with the .375 H&H...or at least the idea of it. I have a line on a Sako AV in .375 H&H for what I think is a good price. Given the first two sentences on of this post, I cant be confident on either the rifle itself or the rifle in this caliber. Those of you with more knowledge than I, please enlighten me with your thoughts on the Sako AV in .375 H&H. And please do it quickly...I think my window of opportunity is short!
