    Congrats! Two excellent choices in bullets also
    I love both the A-Frame and the Peregrine! I haven’t tried the Peregrine in 375 yet but it’s performance in my 300 H&H was excellent.
    Cheers,
    Cody

    Best rifle for the price, right out of the box!!! Along with best caliber to do it all if that is what you want!

    Thank you guys.
    Got 100 Norma cases on spesial as well, so now for load development to start. Think i will try and stay with the 230gr Peregrene for evergday use, and then some 270gr for the Limpopo Bush.

    Congrats on getting your new rifle, hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed my 375 H&H. I love mine, not real cost effective to shoot all the time but I took it out the other day just because I enjoy shooting it.

    Congrats on finally bringing the new baby home!

    My M70 in .375 H&H is probably my favorite rifle in the safe right now.. Love the way it handles and shoots...

    IMO, many many! The basic rifle for Africa and Alaska!

    I bought a used one in 375 H&H Mag. from a very caring previous owner off Gunbroker about a month ago. I will be mounting a scope on it in the near future but will probably not take it to the range till after my return from Africa. I'm not worried about the accuracy since all of my other Winchesters are great shooters. Three cheers for Winchester Model 70 Safari Express!!!!

    I also bought the New M70 in 375HH last year. I upgraded the wood and need to spend a little more time at the range with it
