Not sure if they’ll still have them but Collector’s Firearms in Houston head a No. 1 in 300H&H, .375H&H and a few other calibers several weeks ago
It is a beaut. And those long thin rounds are just as pretty.
It's all down to stock design; with a straighter top, and less toe-heel angle they are much, much more tolerable in heavier calibers. A shame they weren't produced that way, and as RooHawk posted, a flat-top action would have been awesome!!Hope you like recoil! I had one in .450-400 for a time and while it shot very well, it gave me a recoil headache every time I shot it. Sold that for a CZ 550 in .404 Jeffery and shot the same type of loads and nary an issue.
The No.1 just seems to kick harder than other rifles of similar power levels. Ruger could put a better pad on the big bores but dont seem interested in doing so.
We have another winner! I sure like mine, good shooter. Still getting used to how the system works, though, still find myself forgetting to pull the hammer back! Its not a Ruger No.!.
They are rare for a reason. Ruger apparently used some odd dimension in the chamber and shooters had issues with them.If its rare that you're looking for, don't stop until you find a 404 Jeffrey. Ive been told that only seventy some were built but i can't confirm that.
