    Congrats on a very nice rifle !
    I topped my .375 with a Leupold 2.5-8 VX3i with a post and duplex reticle and it has worked very well so far, I have used it in near darkness on hogs with excellent results.

    If you wouldn't mind to move up in magnification a touch, the VX6 with a firedot duplex can be had at considerable savings right now from Natachez.

    I have two scopes each set up differently on QR mounts for my 375 H&H. The 1-6x sighted in for 100 yds using 300gr bullets for DG and the other a 2-12x sighted in for 250gr bullets for plains game hunting using a 6” point blank range. I carry both scopes utilizing one as a backup...just in case an oops happens.

    I currently have a Leupold VX-R 3-9X40 on my Win Mod 70 .375 H&H with Talley QD's and it is fine. But the Swarovski R8 1-8X24 on my 9.3 is way way better.

    Congratulations. A good looking rifle.

    On my 416 Rigby I have an Aimpoint scope as well as a Trijacon 1.25-4X24 picket Post reticle. Use the Aimpoint for most work. The Trijacon for anything over 200mts or rabbits over 50mts.

    When I read the title of your post I was fully expecting to see a gun that shot one of these:

    Not a gun that shot one of these:

    But still... congratulations on the rifle! I love mine and they are very soft shooting! Have fun with i!

    I bought a new Winchester Model 70 Safari Express chambered in .375 H&H about a month ago. I topped it with a Leupold VX 3i 3.5-10x40 mounted in Warne QD rings. I am very please so far. I have shot it a couple of times and am working up loads based on Barnes bullets. Avoid Remington factory ammo. It is junk.

    I visited the Huntex expo this pass weekend in Midrand, Johannesburg and I bought a vortex viper 1-6x24 for my .375 H&H.

    Nice glass! Let us know how it holds up to the .375 once you get a couple of boxes of ammo through it.

    I ended up topping mine with the new Zeiss V4 1-4x with the illuminated reticle.. (I mentioned earlier in the thread I was looking at a leupold option and the zeiss V6..)...

    We got a stellar deal on the V4 after they were initially released at the SHOT Show.. I couldnt pass it up...

    But.. I've always really liked Vortex.. they make great glass for the money (IMO), and their customer service is top notch..

    I have a Leupold VX5 in 2×10 on my 375HH. It's not the one with the dials. Just dirt simple. Nice glass and the adjustments are accurate and repeatable. I like Leupold and Nikons genetally

    Congrats on the new rifle. I topped my Kimber Caprivi in 375 H&H with a leupold vx3i 2.5 x 8 with leupold rings. It served me well on my plains game hunt last summer, and plan on it servo g me well when I go back after buffalo.

    I just got the same rifle from Sierraone on here. Beautiful rifle!
    I’m in the same boat so I will be interested in what you decide on.
