Not the best pic but here is mine in .375 Super Grade (on top) along with my CZ in .404 Jeffery. Both wearing Swarovski scopes as I was heading to Zimbabwe.

That is some really nice wood on the CZ. How does the action compare to the Winchester? I have a Model 70 Super Grade in .300 Win Mag, and it has the smoothest action of any rifle I have ever owned. I imagine the Super Express is comparable.

The CZ action is nice and very strong. I really like my .375 but the CZ is a real tack driver. At the 100 yard range it groups much tighter than the .375.

My .375 was shooting 8” groups when I got it with Remington factory ammo. The problem was the ammo. I now have it shooting right at 1 MOA using hand loads. See the bottom of the attached photo which reflects two different groups fired at 100 yards off a Bogpod. I have a 200 yard zero and was experimenting with different hold points.

The top target is a 100 yard group off the Bogpod with my .300 Win Mag.

ETA: Both rifles obviously shoot tighter off a bench rest.

Winchester isn't currently offering the Super Express, or I would have bought one. If I have it right, it is a super grade version of the Safari Express. It has high polish bluing and better wood,like a Super Grade.

Here is a photo of a Super Express magazine floor plate I found on the web.


Tks!!!
I have a super express, but I did not know the difference between them

+1 Safari Express 375 H&H. Just used it last month for a Buff down to Klipspringer. Love this gun, better than my 300 WM.

Hi Toby.
I was culling game for a living so that number of Buffalo was taken over a period of many years when I running my Business before the laws were changed. All these, but a few were taken in forrest areas tracking on foot not from a vehicle.
It is only a small amount compared to other game I shot on an annual quota. Cheers....

I recently upgraded the stock on my .375H&H Safari Express - a AH member had it for sale and @huntinlabs kindly bought it and brought it to SA for me when he came to hunt.
