I'd probably use a lighter than .375 H&H for some dangerous game hunting if I happened to live in good African hunting country with plenty of opportunities. A .338 Win or 9.3x62 would seem like a good alternative for a resident hunter with plenty of time to hunt and who can wait to choose a proper shot opportunity.
While hunting with a costly outfitted long distance foreign hunt in a once in a lifetime situation? The cost and inconvenience of using and training with a specially dedicated big bore rifle is minor compared to the overall trip planning and cost. Just suck it up and buy the correct firearm for the job, or rent one.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375

Just checking to see if you got the second package of shells I sent you?
