Ruger No. 1
« on: April 25, 2022, 11:29:07 pm »
Picked up an old man gun the other day. eBay had a nice Burris gloss scope to match it. It?s a shame you can?t buy a new gloss scope anymore. I still remember the first matte scope I had to buy. I puked a little in my mouth a little as I handed them the cash. Now, that?s all you can get. This Ruger No.1 .270 deserves better.

I was always a leupold fan, recently, (7 years*\-)  I?ve switched to vortex, but I believe Burris was a decent scope. Never had one before. Never had a .270 before. I?ve done the -06 and .300WM already. Now, as an old man, as I?ve been told, I?m mostly .30-30 or .7mm-08.

Took it for a test drive today. About a half a box to get dialed in and shot one group for keeps. Still have a few rounds left for burger and shanks.

Nobody?s gonna shoot the lights out at 100yds with a 4X scope, but I could probably hit the lamp shade.

Nice.  Beautiful rifle.  I love mine.  Also love my Browning high wall.  I'll try to post some pictures when I can.

Yes.  18" octagon barrel.  1-12 twist.  Long eye relief scope.  Those are 730gr powder coated, cast bullets going 900 fps.  This end of Nebraska I like it for deer.  Too many houses too close.  I need something that when it hits the dirt it just digs in and doesn't ricochet.  But I want more accuracy than a 12 gauge slug gun.  The first gun I've owned that I think is actually a "brush gun".  The bullet is a freight train...

I like a .45-70 in the woods here. I mostly shoot a .30-30, but sometimes you wanna hit them with a Greyhound bus.
Both of these are .45-70. One has a Skinner peep on it and the other has a Ranger Point sight. 1895 CB and a 1895 CBA
