View Full Version : Anyone ever shoot a 300 h&h?

Thinking about picking one of these up along with a matching 375 h&h,

how's the recoil on the 300?

In between the 30.06 and the 300 Win mag. It usually seems harsher because a lot of the older guns that were built into 300 H&Hs had older style stocks with a lot more drop which amplifies the rise of the gun under recoil and amplifies felt recoil . In a modern stock it's a light 300 Win Mag (about equivalent to the 300 WSM round).

My friend has a Holland double gun set in every caliber/gauge -- I shot his 300 H&H and it was more pleasant than a Weatherby 300... Fine caliber -- what brand rifles are you looking at

I was looking at the CZ safari classic magnum express. Any recommendations?
