I acquired this Ruger No. 1-H Tropical in 416 Rigby this year for my rifle for our husband and wife Cape Buffalo hunt. My wife will be hunting with our Ruger M77 Guide Gun in 375 Ruger that we shared on this years Namibian hunt. I wanted a big bore to back up my wife when she takes her Buffalo. The recoil is manageable and with a whole year to train with it I’m confident it will do fine for my Buffalo.

What's the cartridge carrier on the side?
It's such a versatile caliber for a hand loader such as I. I have the option to use cheap .45-70 bullets and sling them around with trail boss for fun or turn the volume way up with a 550 Woodleigh. I have a .375 for distance and a .458 for absolution. Life is good. I'm just wishing I had never gotten an Encore in .300WM.I love the Ruger No.1, just not in the big kickers. They hurt!
Thank you sir! It is 1 of 13 in this configuration according to the ROCS.Love that with the stainless and walnut! Fine looking rifle!
No, not like this one. Yours has a rifle barrel on it. Mine has what looks to be a heavy machine gun barrel on it.I have one looks just like yours,, only in a more easily handled caliber.. the .257 Roberts!
