    Blaser 375 H&H barrel

    As stated. This Blaser R93 barrel is immaculate. Iíve not fired it but Iím told itís been to Africa. My gunsmith believes itís had very little use. Iíve procrastinated over it for a while but Iím just not likely to use it.
    Could negotiate the left hand walnut stock and action with it but I want to keep the bolt head for the 300wm I have.

    Yep. I really like the thought of the chamber but Iíd never have the nuts to shoot it un-braked or un-suppressed. Iím not prepared to butcher this barrel. Itís to damn good. So on the market for someone that can do it justice.

    The problem is I’ve got a 6.5x284, 7-08, 300winmag
    They all kill anything I’m ever likely to hunt. The 375H&H will definitely make a bigger hole but it’ll still be dead lol
    Honestly even now that I’ve listed it I’m conflicted :/

    Yes, while it would help with muzzle jump I doubt it’d do much for recoil. I really can’t say for sure until I fire it.
    If I come across some factory loads I may just have to see.

    Yup have been developing a load with my .375H&H with 250grn Sierra Gamekings running about that speed and find the recoil stout but manageable. Recoil, as always, is more of a problem load testing and sighting in than hunting.

    I shot some fallow in Feb using the .375H&H with 260gr SP. It was way overpowered, but loved the experience of using it and both animals were DRT!
    Recoil was very manageable offhand (apart from sighting in off the bench).
    The Truth shall make ye fret.

    I can't see your problem.
    Four isn't a lot of barrels. And I would probably swap the 6.5 barrel for a 223 if I had concerns about having to many.
    Four barrels from 223 to 375 would have you covered for all situations.

    I won’t be getting rid of the 6.5 I love that barrel lol
    Seriously though, I’ve got the lefty timber and action I’ll never use but would keep the bolt head, which diminishes the action sale. My son does shoot lefty but shows little interest. It was my excuse for the purchase at the time.
    I’ve got a Swaro 1.24-4x24 on mounts that matches perfectly with the H&H
    I’ve got a NF NX5 that I’ll probably not use.
    Doesn’t seem to be a lot of Blaser interest out there at the moment. Seems I’ve accumulated a bunch of stuff I really don’t know what to do with lol
