    I love the #1, currently their are 2 in my gun safe a 30-06 and a 416 Rigby. I really don't need another #1 but I'd love to have one in my favorite caliber the 35 Whelen, I know Ruger has already done that but I still want one..

    My 450/400 and a 30-06 with 24 in. barrel would make a nice set of No.1's.

    Guns International had a ton of them. They did have a 243. Didn't see a 25-06 or a 458 Lott. Just about everything else that was mentioned.

    Would love to see a No. 1 chambered in 300WSM. Not sure if it's ever been done, maybe would compete with 300RCM. Otherwise, am waiting for 300 Win Mag.

    @velodog, did you ever look at a Greener GP ? That’s about as close as you can come.

    Yep it’s a punch! However, @lwaters shot my 458 Lott and said it wasn’t too bad!

    .303 British absolutely.

    .577/450 would be fun as well. Basically a modern version of a Martini Henry.

    Yes, and a fellow I used to know had one re-fit with a present day 12 gauge fully rifled barrel, multiple leaf express sights and all.
    It was a thing of beauty and very accurate with slugs, as intended.
    Seems like such a simple idea could be easily manufactured by Ruger, in regards to their #1 action.

    I like that list. Pretty much covers everything.

    The Greener GP in the Police Mark III version would be an ideal candidate for re-barreling to a standard 12-bore (most interestingly in the Paradox configuration, should one feel so inclined). They're common and inexpensive and already made up to accept a standard 12-bore head (the Mark III uses an odd shell with a 12-bore head but a 14-bore body, so made so as to prevent criminals from stealing and then making use of the weapon).

    As for the Ruger No. 1, standard 450 NE basic brass is as large as the action can accept without modification. Standard 500 NE brass can be made to fit with a little effort. Even the 577 NE can be made to work (with a lot more effort). Anything larger is pretty much impossible.
