Tim, How old is it? How did it shoot?
Per the serial number (134-34645) and the Ruger website, the rifle was produced in 2011.
I purchased this rifle on impulse a week after I bought my Boddington Kudu. You can imagine the questions my wife had about that!
A fellow on AR was selling it in barely used condition, it was beautiful, and I had regretted ever selling my previous No 1 in .375. So very much the impulse buy. I don't recall what I paid, but for sure it was under $1,000. I think around $900.
I knew the Boddington Kudu would be getting all the attention for at least a year, getting ready for the hunt with Loodt. But I planned on this 375 being in the wings for the (hopefully) second safari which would be for Cape Buffalo.
Now, I am pretty sure I'd be willing to hunt buff with the No 1, but as I have said earlier, I have a bad case of wanting a 404 Jeff (always wanting to play with something new) and there really is no need for me to have a 375 and a 404. I am not Action Bob!
As for how it shoots...I have a total of about 10 rounds through this rifle! I loaded up some 260 grain Partitions and zeroed the Nikon scope that was on it...and that is it!
