    the Ackley improved is based on a '06 case.
    Shoots 10% heavier and 5% faster than an '06.
    a .375 is a real workhorse.....my choice of the two.

    As much as I like a .338 bore... I think I'd have to take the .375 for purely logistical reasons.

    It is likely a .338 '06, but there is other possibilitys as far as A.I goes, could be a .338-30wcf A.I >.O

    I'd go with the .338-'06 if i were you.

    I own both a 375H&H and a 338-06AI. The 375 is heavy and doesn't get hunted much, the 338 is managable and I'd feel more than confidant hunting with it for anything.

    That said if I had a 7.5lb 375 it would get used a lot more.
