    Are we back? OK.

    Here's my 602 in 375 H&H:

    In the past few days I picked up a Remington Model 30 from Gunbroker and sent it off to a smith for rebuilding. It's a 30-06 and I will have it rechambered to 300 H&H.

    Boxhead- where did you get that safety? I have a 602 .375 and the factory safety is noisy beyond belief

    That safety was on the rifle when I bought it. Ed LaPour makes them.

    Disregard the other two rifles in the picture. The bottom rifle is Ruger No. 1 in .375 H&H

    Kimber 8400 Talkeetna in .375 H&H Mag, Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40mm with RZ600 reticle and Talley stainless QD rings ... I couldn't be happier with this rifle/scope/rings combination.

    New Custom 300 H&H

    A 700 Rem. BDL action, trued; Timney trigger set to 2 lbs; Rock Creek 5R stainless barrel, 26", #6 contour, chambered to .300 H & H; McMillan fiberglass stock HTG general purpose hunting model, green molded in color textured grip and fore-end. (Randy's Custom Custom Rifles, Wapiti, WY).

    I've settled on Hornday brass, 68 gr H4831 @2800 fps MV. 190 gr. Sierra Matchking. Shoots .5 MOA at the proving grounds thus far. That is a standard Sightron Fixed 16x 30mm.

    300 H&H requires hand loading. I've got my Ruger No. 1 shooting 1 moa with hand loads. Factory hunting ammo? forget about it.

    I remember seeing them in rifle magazine years ago, did not know if they where still around. I see you are not using the set trigger. Choice or you don't have it?

    That is what I started out planning. I have a 30 in heavy barrel 22-250. Hadn't found one at a decent price. Looks like the action would be great for it tho. Keep us updated when you get it back

    OK, it is totally cool that some guys are still getting rifles made for the .300 H&H. Mine's a Remington 721 with a custom stock. (Frantically searches for picture...) I'm currently thinning out the herd I have, to finance a trip to Africa to use her where she was intended...

    Sorry, no pics but I have a Rem 700 XCR II in .375 H&H. It produces 3-shot <0.5" groups at 100 yards with my hand loads. I have it in a bedded B&C Medalist stock in Weatherby configuration and Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 scope in Leupy QR (quick release) bases and rings.

    Lots of beautiful rifles in this thread.

    Out of curiosity, why do some manufacturers put sling swivels on a barrel band? Doesn't that prevent using the sling to stabilize an offhand shot, because it would put pressure on the barrel and hinder accuracy?

    Bobson, in a rifle that has a bit of recoil, the last thing you want is a sling swivel smashing into your hand, especially when shooting off sticks. I really don't include a 375 in this category, but the 416's and 458's and up, for sure.

    With the big rifles it's generally an up close and personal affair, and pinpoint accuracy isn't necessary. You're usually shooting standing from sticks, or kneeling, and neither do you have support from your support elbow (you switch knees when you use sticks from the kneeling, so your strong hand arm rests on your knee)

    Okay, I'll play on the H&H topic, since these cartridges are, ah ... "topical" again. ;)

    Early Ruger #1 in 300H&H (not the later Boddington run).

    0213v2-1.jpg

    Lon Paul-customized BRNO ZZK 602 in .375 H&H.

    BRNO-10.jpg

    BRNO-3.jpg

    AHR 550 DGR in .404 Jeffery ...

    yeah, I know, techically it's not an "H&H," but hey, ... don't they all play together at some point? :D

    My Winchester Safari Express in 375H&H. Once I got the bedding and crown fixed it became one heck of an accurate rifle.
