I don't think I want to say this because some of you will think I was nuts. The Ruger #1 I put pictures on and the 100 200 group pictures for. I found out that the groups I was getting off a bench rest were even better but when I took the rifle off the bench rest I couldn't get my eye even close to a full view scope. I ordered the ruger off set rings that only work on the Ruger #1. I got them on and still couldn't get one. I took off the butt plate and it was perfect. I asked a couple people here about cutting off the stock and they said it wasn't a good idea. With about two weeks till my trip to SA I set up my miter saw and took off the width of the butt plate so I have a Ruger #1 that is perfect for me and probably anyone of my size. So I agree with the statement that you just can't slide them back far enough. I will never sell my 300 WM so I think it was a great idea.
