Ok, I have been after a medium bore elk round/bear stopper if necessary. 35o rem mag was high on the list, but I want open sights and the cost and getting someone to put on the front sight is a problem. The only rifle I like that i can find is the .375 ruger african. So is it feasable to use reduced loads for deer/moose etc when not in big bear country. I see in my manuals for .375 H&H 235 grain and 250 grain up to 2600 which should recoil similar to a .338 and full monte 270 grainers when hunting elk up North in bear country. I guess a 358 Norma is what I really want and need but factory rifle/brass etc is appealing and i particularly like the Ruger rifle. So there is the logic. What are the problems? What loads do .375 ruger owners use for practice at the range? I don't imagine you shoot 30 rounds of full monte 300 grainers for fun?
