Now up front I understand that the following is just an exercise in dreaming what if. I once owned a Browning BLR (steel frame) in .358 Winchester it is one of those rifles in hindsight I wish I had never let go of. It handled so nice and being in .358 Winchester packed quite a wallop. That said being one of those people that tends to hunt in heavier cover than most since after the first shot is fired on opening morning I have found that the smartest and biggest trophy animals tend to head for the hills far from humans and into the deepest, and thickest cover they can find to avoid people. That is one of the reasons I hunted blowdown timber looking for "elk nests" where a big bull could hide out and recover after the rut while avoiding humans to lazy to do the work to find them in those "jungles." The odds were on the elk's side that they were going to see, hear, or smell you before you saw. them but man was it ever FUN! Some guys carried .45-70s, .450 Marlins and some .358 Winchesters for such close "jump shooting" since you most likely would only get one shot at a fleeing animal so you wanted heavy controlled expansion deep penetrating bullets. One combination that NEVER existed but I thought would have been an ultimate timber rifle combination for larger game and even for possibly Alaskan bears would have been a Browning BLR chambered in .376 Steyr. The .376 Steyr never took off but as a cartridge for heavy game (elk, bear, and even moose) in a first rate handy rifle like the Browning BLR that would allow the use of spitzer bullets with its box magazine and fast handling it sure could have helped its cause over what it was offered in. No it would not and should not replace the .375 H&H as a dedicated Brown Bear cartridge but it could serve the average person who wanted and need a fast handling camp rifle and personal defense rifle cartridge combo in a crisis I think it would fit a niche. It is just one of those things that passes through your mind sometimes late at night when you are toying with those what if scenarios. It sure would be a more practical modern functional version of the old .375-06 with even more power but with less recoil than the venerable .375 H&H (which I have also owned and loved) or the newer .375 Ruger. Not everyone needs a magnum but that bore diameter and bullet can sure come in handy sometimes. Happy hunting!
