Remington’s New Three-Seven-Five

I got to shoot this rifle Monday and was impressed. I ran nine rounds through it shooting off-hand at a five inch spinning target at 50 yards. If I were in need of a .375, this is the direction I would go. (For what its worth, all the blabber about dangerous game rifles and control-round-feeding (CRF) has never meant a hill of beans to me. You can jam up a CRF action as tight as a rich uncle and you cannot combat load – drop a cartridge into an open action on one tuned to provide true CRF function.) As it is, I do not need one but would happily accept one as a Christmas or birthday gift. The only change I would make is to remove the rear sight and install an XS aperture rear sight.

    My First Law of Acquisition (to borrow from Star Trek) is if you can’t fix it, feature it.

    I liked Remington’s deal with Zastava and their Model 798, which I found a clever name and even too subtle for some. I was sorry to see them split the blanket, but by the time they did I had already sold my .375 H&H rifles and moved on to the Ruger M77 Hawkeye African, even though I did my first African hunts with a pair of .375 H&H rifles.

    I have an African friend, a Zim PH who uses a Rem M700 in .458 Win Mag, and he hasn’t noticed any problems with his rifle.
