My 378 had shot nearly 3000 rounds and was still shooting OK but I hated the light #3 profile factory barrel. I personally think it needs the same profile barrel as the 460 and a different stock. The standard walnut Monte Carlo stock does it no favours and I swapped it for an aftermarket laminated straight comb stock.

The rifle is now a 300/378 and I expect to get about 1,200 rounds through it before it goes off. Next barrel I am thinking of a 300 Lapua Inproved or a 375 Lapua.

The 460 should have good barrel life, probably 3,000 to 4,000 rounds. I don't expect to burn it out.

My personal opinion for you is a CZ 550 chambered in 416 or 450 Rigby. Very plesent to shoot and a classic looking rifle in the Rigby tradition. It will make your 30/06 feel like a pussy cat. The Mrs might even want to try it out.

Haha...my missus won’t touch the 260. The 223 and .22 - yes...that’s it.
My 06 is surprisingly bothersome. Weighing 3.2kg with scope - on the bench it cracks hard with 180’s.
I imagine any of the 300’s will add 20-30% to that and the shoulder busters your talking about - probably double the 06 lol.
I think you might n looking for an organ donor making recommendations like that lol

get a 375 H&H and ream it out to 375 weatherby, 300 fps better than the 375 H&H and just shoot the 375 H&H cases in the 375 weatherby to form :thumbsup:

have been kicking the idea around for for mine for a hell of a long time but problem is that BOB from KUDU has shut shop at the moment ill and he is the only smith I know of that has the reamer :unknown:

Detached retinas can be fixed, I am with Marksman. I don't think you need any more speed in a 30 cal but a 375 can deliver a heavy payload. I shot a 375 Ruger and it was a pussy cat. The 375 Weatherby is a handy thing too, you can load them down so they have no sting or run them fast for a bit of fun.

No mention of the 30 Nosler or even 33 Nosler? sounds like it would suit your intended purposes with little fuss as you can use a win mag action. Brass will be around for a long time as many factory rifles and ammo available for 26 / 28 Nosler. The ballistics aren't too shabby either. Interesting article: https://gununiversity.com/300-norma-mag ... 30-nosler/
Iv been thinking of a 30 Nosler, or as mentioned above, wildcatting the 375 Ruger cartridge to either 338-375 or 30-375.

Isn't the Nosler just a shorter RUM. What can it do that the Ultra Magnum cannot do?

The 338 WM is a bit like the 308, it does nothing badly but not outstanding. It is only a small increase in caliber over a 30 cal, smaller selection of more expensive projectiles compared to a 30. The Tikka would shoot 200 grain projectiles well but so can your 30/06.

it is :thumbsup:
IMO that rifle would suit a short distance sambar hunter who wanted to stop the big buggers in there tracks, a good useful rifle for that :drinks:
you would be better spending your money on a new 300wm howa 1500 long range magnum with varmint barrel from cleavers, IMHO

That’s so darn cheap - I think I might have to do it and see how it goes.
Awaiting PTA now...
Might be my first foray into replacing stocks and learn / get something a little more friendly....
Cheers for advice - I think we have a winner.

A bit more research undertaken.
In regards to a 300 - What would be the benefits of buying something like a sendero vs a howa 1500 ? The price difference is significant- andvim sure the 700 would be a better quality, but more than likely not a better shooter - are there additional benefits RE aftermarket stocks etc?
