Just got back from Texas on a freezer filler whitetail hunt, I ended up taking 2 smaller management bucks to fill my freezer, I used my sako AV 375 h&h with 275 gr cutting edge safari raptor bullets as a little science experiment and noticed I had far less meat damage with the 375 vs my other "appropriate" deer rifles so I believe I may have a new deer rifle

Was this a paid hunt or your farm? Well done. I've been thinking about using the 375 H&H as well. We have some big hogs here in GA, and would like to try it out. :)

Interesting about the .375 on whitetails. I have also taken a couple of deer with my .375 H&H, using the same 300 grain A-Frames that I used in Africa. (This was partly an experiment, but also because my favorite .270 was being re-bedded in its stock at the time.) Like you, I found that the .375 did much less meat damage than my "regular deer rifle." I'm not planning on turning it into my go-to deer rifle, though.

Good job! Where abouts in Texas?

I went to a friends ranch in La Salle County (south Texas) last weeked and had a good deer hunt too and filled the freezer.

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,
