The only cartridge currently available in the Ruger #1 is 7x57. And I don't think they will make them too much longer. There will soon be no more #1's made. Now the used market is a different story. Used (I prefer pre-owned) #1's are out there and available and will be for quite a while. One good thing about used #1's is that most of them were taken good care of. A guy who owns a Ruger #1 is a serious rifleman who appreciates quality and good looks and doesn't care about (or need) a fast second shot. A .300 H&H in a Ruger #1 should not be hard to find. The .300 H&H was also made by Remington in their M721 and I see those available from time to time.

The .300 is what is availible, not the .375. If you want to go big I vote .416 Rigby.

Or even better, .505 Gibbs!

Actually, I have a pre-64 Model 70 in .375 H&H, and anything I can't kill with one shot from that rifle, well..... I don't need to kill!

And anybody that tells you a .375 H&H is a joy to shoot is a damned.... well you know!

Yea, I could have worded that differently but, the good news is that you are still fairly sharp for your vintage and it got you a few more "likes".

Minus the history lesson, the 300 H&H was a victim of cannibalism.

i have no need for a 300 H & H rifle, but if one came along at the right time and price, i'd buy it and shoot the snot out of it! or until my bruised shoulder couldn't take anymore!
