As both of my current 375's are blued/wood (Pre production CRF Winchester Super Express from '93 and a CZ Safari) I was looking at the Rugers. The Talkeetna from Kimber is very nice but very spendy as well.
Anyone have any success stories with the Ruger? Ammo availability? My reloading stuff will all be in storage while I'm in Dutch Harbor so I'll be at the mercy of OTC ammo.
The Diamondblack version is a coated carbon steel if I'm not mistaken and the early ones were problematic with the coating staying on (what I read) so I would probably go with the plain old, ugly stainless (I know, I know, it's a tool).
Also, recoil compared to an H&H?
