Ep 128: 9.3x62mm vs .375 H&H vs .375 Ruger Comparison

Following along the same trend as the past few episodes, we’re going to step down a little bit in caliber again today and discuss a few slightly smaller, but still really effective and popular dangerous game cartridges today in the 9.3x62mm Mauser, the .375 Holland & Holland Magnum, and the .375 Ruger. In this episode, I’m going to do a detailed comparison of the 9.3×62 vs .375 H&H vs .375 Ruger and discuss the pros and cons of each one so you can make an informed decision regarding which one will work best for you.

If you’ve listened to all my podcast episodes on Africa and really paid attention to what Kevin, Phil, and I had to say, then you probably know WAY more about hunting in Africa than most other people.

If you’re ready to take the plunge and go on the hunt of a lifetime in Africa, then get in touch with me and I’ll set you up with an outstanding hunt out in the bushveld for buffalo and/or plains game. We have a few openings remaining for 2021, but we’re almost completely full. 2022 is filling up FAST as well, but I still have some great dates available.

These hunts are for serious hunters who want to experience wild Africa. These hunts are not for everybody and I actually have to turn away people who are interested in hunting with us each year because I don’t think they can hack it or because I think they’re looking for something we can’t provide. 

But, if you’re a serious hunter looking for a true African hunting Adventure, check out Big Game Hunting Adventures (or visit BestSafariHunt.com) and we’ll get you set up with that hunt you’ve always dreamed of. 

Mention that you heard about Big Game hunting Adventures through the Big Game Hunting Podcast for special pricing on all our hunts.
