Hi Justin and welcome to Blaserbuds. That is an impressive collection for such a young man. I wish I had discovered Blaser when I was your age. It would have saved me a lot of searching and disappointments. You are very fortunate.

Welcome Justin and a great collection of calibres already. A 9.3 to round it out would be the ticket :lol:

Welcome aboard, Justin. Great start to your Blaser collection. I too wish I had known about Blasers when I was your age.

Good hunting,

Eddie

Good luck with it. I bought my first Mauser when I was not much older than you but didn’t buy a Blaser until I was 27.

What are you hunting with them and what scopes have you set up with each barrel?

Whilst the .375H&H is a legendary versatile cartridge, I think you are missing one of the simple pleasures of the Blaser platform - hunting with a Euro oddball with origins in the heyday of turn of the last century gunmaking. I’d suggest a new cartridge with an ancient bullet, the RWS 10,3x68 Magnum
