Ruger 375 H&H Houston For Sale

OK Tim, the only reason I have not jumped all over this is that it is a single shot. I need a 375 or larger but I really want a bolt gun. Darn it is tempting though! Nice rifle. Come on AH members buy this thing!

I am never going to get that 404 Jeffrey if somebody doesn't buy this rifle and these bullets! My accountant (Kathy) is a terror!

I just spent a wad on a safari, and I am going to spend another wad on taxidermy and shipping. She is not going to give me any wiggle room!

If I don't get the 404, I can't become a big boy and post in Matt's Big Bore Thread, because everyone knows a .375 is a medium bore! ;)

So, come on...can somebody help a bother out here????

You're making me beg....and driving me to drink. :D Booze::D Barman:

:A Stirring:
Tarbe understand I had a pair of ruger RMS 375 and 416 Rigby and just got the 375 actio0n back from Pac-nor and the re-barreled it to a 404. I just also spent a bunch on safari and will have a nice taxidermy bill (However my accountant shot more than me this time). No if you happen to own a TC encore I could be persuaded into trading a 416 Rigby barrel and set of dies for some bullets? and you can wade into the big bore group but I warn you that the 416 is just the entry, then a 404 and 458 and 510 and 12 bore then 8bore well you get the idea Some one give the man a hand with the med rifle, would be cool to see Tarbe's rifle get handed down to several guys in a row to start their migrate up the big bore ladder:sneaky:
Man I wish I could help you out but I have a 375 already and a 416. I also have a big safari bill myself and starting to try and save for another. I can't imagine that this wont sell, somebody should jump on it.

Ok I need pics and details ASAP... Do we have a 404 thread someplace or does this need to go over to the big bore thread? Or do we need to start one?

Sorry Tim, I've already got 3 375's.... But may just need a 404!
Pictures I will have to take. They will rebarrel a #1. Mine is a Ruger RMS 77 bolt action the cost was $ 600ish once you include shipping. They did a great job. I had it shipped back to me in the white so I can add the NEGG sights I want on it and still haven't decided if I am going to slow rust blue of have it cerakoted... If my memory serves me I can include a url link to a vendor but not a different fourm so I am going to put a link to Pac-nors page give them a call they are very helpful. Also the turn around time was right around 90 days.
Actionbob I will start a thread in the big bore fourm when I get ready to start on the work. I am currently restocking a #1 in 7x57 international. The 404 is my next project.
Tim, How old is it? How did it shoot?

Per the serial number (134-34645) and the Ruger website, the rifle was produced in 2011.

I purchased this rifle on impulse a week after I bought my Boddington Kudu. You can imagine the questions my wife had about that!

A fellow on AR was selling it in barely used condition, it was beautiful, and I had regretted ever selling my previous No 1 in .375. So very much the impulse buy. I don't recall what I paid, but for sure it was under $1,000. I think around $900.

I knew the Boddington Kudu would be getting all the attention for at least a year, getting ready for the hunt with Loodt. But I planned on this 375 being in the wings for the (hopefully) second safari which would be for Cape Buffalo.

Now, I am pretty sure I'd be willing to hunt buff with the No 1, but as I have said earlier, I have a bad case of wanting a 404 Jeff (always wanting to play with something new) and there really is no need for me to have a 375 and a 404. I am not Action Bob!

As for how it shoots...I have a total of about 10 rounds through this rifle! I loaded up some 260 grain Partitions and zeroed the Nikon scope that was on it...and that is it!

Royal has infected my brain with an idea.

Maybe I just re-barrel this rifle to 404 Jeffrey?

That is what I would do! Was going to suggest it yesterday, but seems you beat me to it:sleep::sleep:
I have not been on a DG hunt but having a few Mates in the industry and seeing all the video clips, generally you would be very lucky to end up in a charge down situation. Your first shot will always be made from a safe distance and likely your second too.
Make them count!! :P Elmer Fudd:
Sounds like a great idea to me! Tim you apparently shoot those things like laser beams anyway :W Laser::W Sharp Shooter:
