375 H&H and here's why
by Joe Jones
Winchester .375 H&H compared to a Winchester .3006
I hunt moose in Alaska and I take my 1967 Winchester model 70 375 H&H magnum shooting 300 grain nosler partitions.
It's blued with a wood stock, no fancy stainless synthetic or laminate.
I have a 2-8×32 vortex scope on it and it works for me.
I own 5 guns, 375 H&H, 243 Winchester, Browning 22 long rifle, 28 guage Beretta, and a 12 gauge Remington. These guns do it all from coyotes, and deer, to dangerous game, and quail to geese. Throw in squirrel and rabbit as well.
The 375H&H is my choice for moose in grizzly country. It's adequate to overkill on moose but just the right medicine if you surprise Mr or Ms grizz.
Can a smaller caliber get the job done? Absolutely. But it's what I have, I shoot it well, and it's got enough power to save me if I was to run into that 1 in 100 grizzly that thinks I look edible.
I'm no sniper wannabe, I keep my shots to 300yds or less and the 375 H&H keeps moose meat in the freezer.
