I like my Savage .338 - very accurate. First impression on the recoil - not nearly as bad as the legend. I have never fired a .375 H&H, but many people say the .338 kicks harder. My guess is they are shooting a "sporter" weight .338 vs. a "magnum" weight .375. I load 200 grain Nosler Accubonds at 2,950, and they have noticably less recoil than the 250's at 2,700. Most folks split the difference and go 225. A day on the bench will wear you out (e.g, 60 rounds), but so will a 7 mag. Enjoy it.
