    One of my old hunting buddies owns these two calibers. He swears there is considerably less meat damage on any species with the .375 than the .270. This appears to be true at least when I have looked at his kills. I have never owned a .375 but have seen similiar results from slightly larger and a little smaller bullets. Given the various bullet choices this might or might not be true. A maxed out .270 plus a fragile bullet is capable of making a big mess. A bigger and slower bullet will generally not yield that sort of outcome. I don't know a lot about the 798 but they seem to be fairly well made, probably better than some of the military Mausers we have used but its not an FN commercial. Midway has a tempting price on 798 barreled actions. I just wish they would offer action only so I could make up another .458.

      I agree. A 270 bulet is designed to expand in a whitetail a .375 isn't.
