I have been exploring the possiblility of adding a 375 H&H to my rifle battery in anticipation of a brown bear hunt next year. In looking over the offerings from Winchester I see two: Classic Safari Express and Classic Synthetic Stainless. For Alaska I think the Stainless will wear better, but I notice its weight is 7.25 vs. 8.5 of the Safari. I know the recoil will be greater with the synthetic stainless, other than placing a muzzle brake - which I do not want to do - anyone with a synthetic who can give me some idea as to recoil/recoil control. Thanks.
