The Model 70 Alaskan in 375 H&H Shotshow edition is the ultimate weapon for dangerous game and for other animals with the correct bullets. It is the caliber that most hunters would carry if they had to hunt all over the world with just one rifle being available. I was experiencing a throw back to 1963 when I wanted this rifle with the 25" barrel and all the refinements the 1963 model had. The weapon is absolutely stunning in the blued barrel, satin Monte Carlo wooden stock, folding sight, and the smooth Mauser bolt action. The trigger pull and all other refinements left me not disappointed. I appreciated the Hinterland courtesy and fast action getting this rifle to me. The shipping charge was $9.95 and that was an excellent price. All in all the Winchester and Hinterland organizations have impressed me and I hope to work up loads that will group as well as my other 375 H&H at less than 1" at 100 yards. I cannot recommend these companies and this rifle strong enough!

Very pleased with this rifle. The bolt is smooth and easy to operate. The wood is beautiful and the 25 inch barrel keeps the muzzle blast at a nice distance. I use starting grains of H4350 with a 270 grain tsx bullet, and the recoil is comfortable in my opinion. It is an excellent rifle to put quick release rings on. Be sure to purchase the Win express post 64 base so the mounting holes will line up. I bought Leupold QR 50063 and they work well. Glad I bought this rifle; it is enjoyable for reloading, versatile for hunting, and great for shooting fun!

I had wanted a .375 H&H for sometime before I finally decided to purchase one. I went to a local dealer who, after several phone calls, told me he 'might' be able to get one in about four months.
I didn't want to wait four months for a 'maybe' so I went on line. I found Hinterland Outfitters, based in Houston Texas and ordered the Winchester Model 70 Alaskan in .375 H&H.
I had the rifle in my excited hands nine days after Hinterland Outfitters received the FFL info from the local dealer. I think such quick delivery was phenomenal in today's 'anything guns' buying climate and I only paid $9.99 for shipping and handling.
While I'm not opposed to plastic stocks (I have rifles and shotguns wearing plastic), nothing pleases my eyes more than a rifle with real wood stock and blue steel. The classic lines of this bolt action rifle, flawless bluing and black walnut furniture makes this Model 70 a 'thing of beauty'.
It has a three shot flush fit magazine that maintains the 'classic' lines. The mating between stock to steel and stock to the Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad are almost seamless.
The rifle features controlled round feed which is basically an claw extractor that holds the cartridge base against the bolt face once it is stripped from the magazine. This extractor maintains control through chambering, firing and only relinquishes control when the base of the shell comes in contact with the fixed blade ejector when the bolt is near its full rearward travel.
This could be a life saver if a nervous shooter (which could happen if being charged by an animal that is intent on eating you or stomping you into a blood puddle) pulls back some on the bolt handle rather than a continuous forward thrust.
The push feed cartridge could jam whereas the controlled round feed won't. Of course practice, practice and more practice will minimize the chance of this happening even with a 'push feed' but in my book controlled round feed is a confidence builder.
The bolt is smooth as glass. According to the manual, Winchester pre-sets the adjustable trigger (Winchester calls it M.O.A. Trigger) at 3.5 pounds and it is crisp and light. The trigger break surprised the fool out of me each time I fired on the range.
After reading the manual and cleaning the rifle it was off to the range. The range for me is the dam of the pond in my back yard that is a little more than 100 yards long and ends at a clay embankment.
Besides my hearing and eye protection I decided to cheat any recoil and wore a Past Recoil Shield. Because of the iron sights and my old eyes, I set up at 50 yards. From a sitting position I squeezed off the first round. As Jed Clampett would say 'Mmmm Doggie!'
Now that's a magnum! The felt recoil was more a push than a punch but a pretty stout push. Altogether I fired three shots with bore cleaning after each shot.
I really (really!) shouldn't even mention the precision because the spread is a reflection of my (in)ability rather than the M70 but, for the record... The group was one inch left of center and overall spread of a little more than 1.5 inches. The bullets used were Federal 300 grain soft points. The rifle is fun to shoot; something I've never said about my 7 mm Remington Magnum (not a Winchester).
Over all rating of Hinterland Outfitters and the Winchester model 70 African:
Exceeded all expectations!
No lions, tigers and bears around this neck of the woods but if a 800 pound rabid raccoon comes tearing out of the woods toward me I have his numbers; 70 and .375.
