    Question Anyone have one of those Ruger No.1ís in 30-30?

    Hi guys! I have been looking at this rifle, and it looks like a nice combination! Stainless and a 22” barrel. I was lucky enough to find a nice No.1 in 35 Whelan last year. After shooting lots of different loads through it I am not highly impressed with the rifles accuracy. I did all sorts of work to the foreend (free floating and glass bedding it). But it seems to like the cast loads better. I am ok with that!

    I am hoping that this new model in 30-30 will shoot a little better! My expectations are to get 1.25 MOA at 100, or better. Not unreasonable I dont think.

    I have never had any issues with achieving very good accuracy from a Browning 1885. I am wondering if I should just rebarrel one of my Browning 1885’s in 22-250rem. It would likely be cheaper as well, and a tack driver. What are your thoughts?

    I would not trust a Ruger barrel to shoot well unless it is a varmint model with a heavy barrel.
