Back in 1992 I bought a new Browning A-bolt 375 H&H in stainless/synthetic form.It came with a Swift 3x9 scope and its been basically the only gun I take with me on my hunts.
I've finally decided to put some money into it and make it more pleasurable to shoot.Upon reading other forum members talking up Stan Jackson's work I dropped off the rifle last monday and had it magna-ported,trigger worked on and a MUCH better butt pad.
Got it back on friday and went shooting yesterday,shot a box of 20 and shoulder is great.Very pleased....Question being is Stan mentioned that I could also have the action blueprinted,moved and glass bedded.I wont even pretend that I know really what all that means but he did say if my groups were spaced out on paper that this work would definitely tighten them up.Would the process be worth it if I'm hitting 6 shots at 150 yards into the size of a softball?I would do this if it improved the gun much....Would it be worth spending another $375.00???
Also,I'm ready for a scope upgrade.I like to use the rifle for different hunts,not a bear only gun.Would the Luepold Euro 30 2-7x33mm be a good choice?From the very little I know about scopes I really liked what I seen through it at the gun shop.Much better eye relief than whats on it know. Would 2x7 be best choice for all around hunting?
Lastly......(promise)......How does the make/model rifle I own rank with other 375's out there? When I bought it I just walked in,liked what I seen and walked out with it.I'm by no means a gun buff,just curious of what those who do know alot on guns think of this rifle.Havent really started using it till bout 5 years ago and its done alright by me.....3 moose and 5 caribou.Any opinions and advice much appreciated in advance.
