.375 magnum, prefer H&H or Weatherby

Looking for a .375, preferably the H&H or Weatherby varieties. As I hunt in sloppy weather I prefer stainless/composite rifles. Rifle must be a "shooter".

Let me know what you have & what you are asking.

Thanks

A .375 H&H magnum is a great elk and above rifle, and if you want to step it up a notch the .378 Weatherby magnum is that much better for anything that you want to shoot.

I have a cousin that has a complete collection of Weatherby rifles all the way from the 240 Wetherby to the 460 and his favorite deer and elk rifle is the 416 Weatherby mag.  It is interesting in that he usually wastes less meat with that 416 than a lot of hunters with lesser calibers.

Hmm, is that because of one

Hmm, is that because of one shot behind the shoulder vs. multiple shots some people will put on a game? I'm a weatherby fan through and through but all I own is a 300 and a 257. I would love that have one of each but yeah there are not cheap
