i went to a auction with a friend who wanted to look at a few ruger# 1,s up for sale and i picked up this very nice 77 ruger uls in 3006 for 500.00 USD and my friend picked up a like new ruger #1 B in .257 roberts for 1075.00 USD. i shot a three shot 2.5" group at 100 yards from a good rest useing the factory open sights with my favorite load for the 3006, 57 grs imr 4350 with a 165 gr nosler bullet. with a 4x leupold added i,m hoping it will do a little better, i know more shots will likely open the groups up quite a bit, but for the fairly close ranges i intend to hunt i think three good shots will be enough.

leslie,
odds are that it will group better with a scope.
56/57 gns 4350 with a 165 gn bullet is a fine all rounder.
165 gn sierras are also a good bullet, with the hp being a bit harder than the soft point.
add a barnes in that weight range and things are looking versatile.
bruce.

Nice gun for sure! It will shoot 165 gr bullets ok, but I bet it will love 150's.

Nice rifle. I like those Ruger rifles with the tang safety and the beefy iron sights. Looks like a carbine length from the photo, how long is the barrel on that one?

That is an absolutely magnificent looking .30-06 Springfield . Is it a push feed action or a control round feed action ? My personal favorite factory load for the .30-06 , happens to be the 220 grain Remington Core Lokt . Among hand loads , I am quite fond of 200 grain Woodleigh protected points and Accurate 2230 gunpowder ( although I hear that Winchester 760 works equally well ) .

Congratulations , once more .

its a semi controlled feed-extracton, a shell is pushed into the chamber and as the bolt is closed the long extractor grips the shell head and extracts the case. however you can get a double feed if you start the feed and pull the bolt back before chambering and trying to push the next shell in.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
