    Putting the feelers out - WTD 7-375 Ruger

    Long shot, just seeing if anything is out there?

    Anyone have a 7-375 Ruger in a 700 LA that they may want to sell in near future?

    Or even a near new Rem 700 SPS in 7RM?

    Nope but did see a .458 Win Mag in wooden With a Ruger action for sale on the Weekend.

    Trigger was crisp as too - and evidently shoots very tight groups if your shoulder can handle shooting enough shots for a group validation!

    U beat me to it ��. I've got a REM 700 ready to go for the conversion.... still tossing up options of 7-375 vs Nosler28 and a few others.
    But leaning to the 7-375

    Yeah I reckon a 26" 7-375 with 180's at 3100-3150 should do the trick eh

    Talk to @Maca49 - as his mate was selling it. But we all got to handle and marvel at the size of that particular projectile (500gr) and the hole it would make in a Pachyderm or two!!!

    Was 2k and in fantastic order for the metal work - slight blemish on the wooden stock but a easy fix!

    Try @Kiwi Greg he might have something.
    I thought you had 7mm covered with 284win and 7mmSAUM?
    But I like the way you think and 7-375

    Keen on something that can push a 180 fairly quick to give a windage advantage over the 7saum and amax at 3k. But isn't much heavier to carry and manageable recoil in lightish rifle

    Know a guy who runs a 28nosler. 180gr bergers @ 3370fps at the muzzle. Built for waps and reckons he had it built so if he sees a big bull at 800m he can smack it over. Sure he runs a 5-25 nightforce on top. Fair bit of carbon to make it nice to carry.

    You are going to be flat out running all of your Facebook pages if you have one for each calibre.
