Just looking for general consensus.
I already have a 9.3x62 mauser with a 22" bbl, but am thinking about building a 375R or 416R on my control feed SS Savage action. IE a rebarrel.
Seems like 375R is too close in diam to the 9.3x62 although the 375R packs more punch.
I have owned a 375R before (barrel) and sold it like a dummy. Very nice round.
Could step up 416R and that would be good for anything on the planet, although with the correct bullet most likely a 9.3x62 would also.
Could also go for a 45-70 in a lever action, a bit faster to cycle, but not the range of the 375R especially. 416R either.
I don't think I will ever sell my 9.3x62 since I built it from scratch and if I set up a 375R I honestly dont know how much I would use it.
My gut feeling is I would use a 45-70 more often than a 375R or 416R.
