    No, but I would go as small as the calibur will allow. Bit much for deer, probably will not run very far though. Let your shoulder rest.

        One of my friends(6'11"-384lbs)used a 375H&H for everything. I believe that he shot a 270 gr. bullet. The rifle was a old Browning Medallion grade that was made in Belgium. No matter what time of year in was, if you looked over in Tom's passenger seat there was that rifle. I know that he shot quite a few deer with this rifle and his one moose after he finally got drawn in the lottery. He also made a pretty good shot on a woodchuck one day. I'm guessing the chuck was 160-170 yards out and he laid on the ground and squeezed one off. The bullet didn't appear to expand at all-big going in-big going out. You know that you're getting up there when you miss more and more of the guys you care about.

            I wouldn't use it for deer, but I can say you will defvinately want to use light loads. Probably a little powder with a 300 grain bullet would be great.

              never shot a deer with on but dad has shot impala, warthog, and coyotes. he uses federal soft point 300 grain. the coyotes flipped in the air and had baseball size holes in them.

              but on deer i would say go for smaller caliber.

                            Long before I was born my dad used a 375 H&H on a deer hunt in Alaska. He was able to take a buck with a very long shot. I think the H&H was the only rifle he had there, plus with the possibility of a bear being in the mix, it was a great move. I think he used a 260 grain bullet in the pre-64 Winchester Model 70.

                              I like the way this topic illustrates how Rudyglove was able to pile on millions of points so fast.
