While I admire that cartridge, my 700 7-Rem.Mag seemed about the same recoil wise, so I was underwhelmed.

If a gun could talk I imagined this one telling me, "if you do not fear me, I will do your bidding".
I ripped off 3 shots first time and just went, "WOW!"
THAT'S WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!
As I said, it's much easier to make recommendations when you know the purpose of the rifle. Since owning a rifle with prodigious recoil was your apparent goal, I'd say the 375 RUM is perfect.
