    Who has a 375 H&H?

    My dream rifle but would just be a safe queen unfortunately. Still gotta have one though.
    Fired a mates BRNO and it was stunningly accurate and not unpleasant.

    What have people got and are they getting used?
    What type of hunting experiences have you had with your rifles here and offshore?
    Any preferences between Sako and BRNO/CZ?

    Then they will be very good rifles.

    The Zkk602 also has the set trigger installed.

    I would buy Kiwi Gregs BRNO 602 if I didn't have the calibres either side.

    I like my 602 just a tad more than my 550.
    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.

    The Sako Kodiak on trademe and here recently are also excellent rifles. Excellent open sights and probably a bit lighter than the cz.

    Nothing wrong with either of these rifles, both shoot well.

    Brno 602 375 H&H | Trade Me

    CZ 550 Magnum 375 H&H | Trade Me

    I have another one sitting in customs at the moment, really don't "need" three 375 H&Hs

    There were two 550's in the safe before I found a 602. Both excellent accurate rifles, the .375 H&H in wood with cross bolts and the .458 Win Mag in kevlar.
    The 602 has the European style stock and is slimmer than the 550 it just feels better to me. Cross bolts are not fitted to 602 375 rifles the walnut was a better grade.
    I like the simpler look of the 602 action.

    The Kevlar stock is also slimmer and feels good but I dont like the 550 actions used as an advertising bill board.

    The difference in the end is a personal choice and the Brno 602 gets a couple of extra ticks from me.

    There are different grades & species of wooden stocks & two different styles of those stocks.
