Good morning to you all! Recently I acquired a brand new, never been fired 300 H&H Craig Boddington "Kudu" Ruger #1 with original box and all the trimmings. Now, the problem is that when I was bidding for this item I didn't KNOW it was "brand new, in case, never fired" rifle! So now I'm facing a conundrum and I'm reaching out to your infinite wisdom for a bit of help. Should I keep her brand new, as is for a few years then try to replace her with a used version and turn a bit of potential profit or should I load her up, take her out, perhaps modify her a bit (as an example I hate having barrel bands on rifles, I prefer stock slings) and then see what I can do later in life about selling? I will say that I don't hand load so even if I did shoot her it would have to be with readily available factory ammo, which I know is the 8th deadly sin to some folks on here lol. Anyway, your input is appreciated and thank you for your time!
