What a quandry I find myself in. I have a 9.3 that's a shooter and was in the process of itemizing the cost of upgrading it with new finish, iron sights and custom stock when I realized it might be a better idea to look for a production rifle that is already closer to the final product I'm looking for (Minus the finish and stock work). I found this in a Model 70 Safari Grade in a 375. Just hesistant on the recoil side of things when comparing the 375 to the 9.3x62. Due to a jaw injury recoil is something I now am acutely aware of. With that being said, so far so good with fairly stiff 286 gr loads. The question is this: is it worth the same amt of money to upgrade the proven and accurate 9.3 or put the same amt of money into the larger 375 and don't look back? I've got a great friend who I am going to be hunting with and now just need to get off the fence on rifle/cartridge selection.
