My boss sold this to me today, for a very good price, and I think it will be a great gun, I will have to buy reloading dies, and work up a good load for it. Oddly enough, it does not have a muzzle break, and doesn't show signs of heavy usage. I'm very excited about this.

Nice, Have you ever shot 1,they have the worst recoil. Worse than a 460,416 be like shooting a 5lb 375h&h.
Load it to h&h velocity then work your way up. The barnes x 270 grainer looks like a winner for anything that walks and loaded to the max shoot as flat as a 300 mag.

What in Arkansas would need a 378 to kill it?:werd:

I kinda thought the same thing, but, for $450.00, it seemed like it was too good to pass up.

i found this tidbit...The .378 Weatherby Magnum will generate considerable free recoil; an average of 104 J (77 ft·lbf) from a 4.1 kg (9 lb) rifle. This is in comparison to an average free recoil of 27 J (20 ft • lbf) from a rifle chambered for .30-06 Springfield. It is written that the .378 Weatherby Magnum will create a greater felt recoil than other cartridge. This includes two of its off-spring; the .416 Weatherby Magnum and .460 Weatherby Magnum

shoot it and tell me about it.
ive got my hands full with the .300winmag:bigeyes:

Wow. Now lets remember, along with it's tremendous recoil comes equally tremendous stopping power. Looks like a good gun, Midas.
