If you have never done it, and love mechanical time pieces, you might enjoy going to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
Determining longitude was a problem that had never been solved. Ships got lost at sea and fleets of ships crashed into rocks at night or in a storm. Everybody thought a star chart or lunar formula would solve the problem. John Harrison, a watch maker determined that longitude could be solved with an accurate time piece that would work even within a raging storm. He spent his life trying to make the perfect time piece. Harrison's multiple attempts are on display at the observatory. He was finally able to solve longitude.
First attempt at solving longitude.

This book tells the story if anybody is interested.
I also have 2 375's, a mostly stock Winchester M-70 and Custom M-70. Is that acceptable?
Not to worry I'm looking for a 404 Jeffery to add.You've had the two 375s more than a few years? And you haven't contracted the big bore addiction disorder? I must refer your case for review. You seem to have some immunity, possibly genetic, but we may be able to isolate it so that it will be available to all those suffering from the disorder. So, has anyone in your direct family been involved with 375s and not succumbed to obtaining yet larger rifles such as 416s, 458s or the dreaded combination of 404s and 470s?
ROTFLMFAODont let them pressure you - I had a 375H&H and then went down to a Flanged. What Ruark meant to say was dont use too much gun....
