    That's a really fantastic specimen, especially that beauifully figured wood.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    cool! might I suggest, new butt pad? those waffle pads weren't the best new, and that one is 40 years old lol. wouldn't really detract at all from the rifle one bit IMO, but sure would make it more shootable!

    If I was going on a dangerous game hunt I would want a Mauser with that big claw extractor and control feed. Well that's what a lot of us here have said, including me. However, having watched a lot of African big game hunting on television the last couple of years, it's almost a moot point when you've got a guide backing you up with a monstrous double rifle. And sometimes even he has a backup. But another thing, I've been hunting with Remington 700s for over thirty years and before that a push feed Winchester Model 70 and I have never had either one fail on me. Of course there's always Mr. Murphey out there waiting on his opportune moment to throw his wrench into the works. However I have seen and heard of Mausers failing too. Albeit not as often as others but it happens. I really don't think an experienced guide is going to depend on any client as a backup to stop charging pissed off game like a cape buffalo. Besides, what a Remington lacks in the dependable department it makes up for in accuracy. And I don't plan on hanging by a tail upside down and shooting anything, so a push feed is plenty dependable.

    You know Snake, even with DG, I think I would limit that CRF requirement probably just for pachyderms. Buff aren't always that close of an affair anymore, 80-100 yards seems to be about the average shot and like you said, there are commonly back ups for the back ups and really, odds are in a charge you got 1 shot. Elephant and hippo though? Usually conducted in MUCH closer quarters, and both (or 3 or 4 or how ever many) shooters might be required to rack off a few shots post haste. Here, positive, reliable extraction is key.

    But, lets also not forget, the 375 H&H is a great everything rifle! With lighter, softer bullets, no reason not to use it for deer. Its a slow heavy bullet, its not going to blow a deer in 2. In fact it'll likely have a whole lot less blood shot meat then ANY 338 or smaller magnum anything, and probably even less then most standard cartridges besides lever action rounds. Basic, plain jane 270gr bullets like a game king or hornady, loaded medium speeds. dead deer, eat up to the hole.
