Anyone had any experience with .300 H&H.

I've got a fancying for a rifle with class... the only problem is the only new .300 H&H guns I can find are eith built by Hollands or another custom rifle builder.

Pic related. shit is custom yo.

For many years the 300 H&H was considered the premier long-range rifle cartridge. Many Palma matches were won with it. But keep in mind you will need an extra-long action to fit the cartridge.

Unless you are truly a world-class marksman, one who practices at least weekly and fires many thousands of rounds a year; a top shelf rifle build in this caliber will be more accurate than you.

That's what I thought.

I want it to lazer red deer and boar with but also have enough bang to take it wherever I want to in the world and zonk whatever needs zonking (and H&H is a plains game cartridge so it'll do anything short of big 5).

Also I was thinking, (and stay with me on this) .30-06 has been gaining popularity in the UK as a long range foxing cal. This is due to the emphasis on humain kills at range and also using the UK 5-0's dislike of numbers of weapons. So as a multi-use cal for hunting deer and removing foxes it's getting passed off. Well I was thinking no reason I couldn't do that with a .300 H&H and as a bonus I can get around those places that say "no military cals" (France for example).

Dumb question, but is .303 Brit still popular for hunting and sport in the UK?

Sport yes, hunting no. UK NRA is litterally beardy guys that just want to shoot .303 Lee Enfields, black rifles be damned.

Bearing in mind I'm approaching with this with an American mindset, and don't know how ammunition cost or availability is for you, but would a .300 Win mag save some headache? Aside from the absolute dinosaur raping 250 grainers it's in the league if not surpassing .300 H&H and here at least the ammunition is far more available.

Don't get me wrong. I'm into the goofy oddball shit like .35 Whelen and .338-06 and I think .300 H&H is a classic cartridge, I just don't know if you have reloading capability and here at least the brass is far, far more available for a .300 Win.
