    For anyone interested, I've decided to sell this rifle. Honestly it's just too nice to drag around deer hunting, and I just bought it on impulse. Still unfired. See classifieds if interested.

    Two 7x57s, a .280, a 30-06 (that has been to Africa), and a .450 Rigby #1 all live at my place. All but the .450 have taken game and it will (hopefully) be used on my first Buffalo. I'd recommend that you keep it.

    I have been looking for a ruger no 1 in 30-06 with 24 in. Barrel seen a few but were pretty old.

    IMG_0574.JPG Mine is a #1A with a 22" bbl. However, it is an old one, made in 1968 and shoots 165 grain Accubonds well under an inch.

    I got a 450/400 in a No1. I think a 30-06 in one would make a nice set.

    Ok, I'm besotted with No 1s, can't help it. Pure class, rifles such as this. Now, what next?
    Has to be a classic caliber, in either 1A or RSI .... sigh ....

    I was looking the other day i have so many guns i bought and haven't shot yet it's ridicules, cause i work so much, yet i keep buying ? Sometimes im like what the hell am i doing ??? My gun buying has takin a back seat to my new to me 2004 F250 Super Duty with a 6.0 in it. 25k ill have just into the motor alone when im done, Already at 16k, could have put a caterpillar 7.3 in it for 1/2 the $ but i wanted to do a 6.0 and see how I like it. There way more sophisticated than the 7.3 and more sophisticated in pulling $ out of my wallet

    The 6.0 was for sure more sophisticated than the 7.3 and pulls a lot of HP out of it, the downside being, and the reason Ford dumped it was too many problems and low service life. The one that came after is reported to be a better motor. I feel your pain. I had an older 7.3 Stroker in a '95 and while HP was only 215 at 3000 RPM, it will last much longer than the 6.0

    WOW! That was bloody quick! You've been bitten by the No 1 bug.
    It's like hunting Africa, a disease ... almost incurable...My sympathy...
    I have five (I think), wondering about more ....

    Yes! I've had quite a few over the years myself! But I'm a bit of a horse trader, so I traded ir sold them all. This 7x57 is a keeper though.

    Toby, I think you made the right choice. I'm almost sorry I sold my RSI even if it was the hardest rifle to shoot offhand I've owned.
