    Yeah, I’ve bought some dumb shit at 3am! But who doesn’t need a 9th 375H&H?o_O The best one was when I bought all three sizes of Glock in 357 Sig because I decided over some whiskey that I really liked the cartridge design and bet it fed really well!

    I've been drooling over a Ruger Hawkeye 6.5x55 at Cabela's and now you have a 275Rigby as well?
    Congrats!

    Pics and a range report when you get it in.
    Side by side with the 6.5 would be a nice comparison.

    Coming to a thread near you..........I can definitely vouch for the Swede, that’s why I snagged the 275 Rigby!

    Received the Rigby today, bottom of the pic. Mounted an older Conquest 3-9x40 MC and she’s ready to go............just as soon as the Arc hits land again.

    Excellent Ruger. You will love it. It is a sweet deer caliber!

    Yes my Swede shoots that good as well with 140gr partitions. Hoping the 275 Rigby follows in the Swede’s footsteps.
