    #1 in .257 Bob in My Grubby Mitts.....

    My little Ruger showed up yesterday, chambered in .257 Bob. I'm torn on mounting optics on but do have a lonely 2.5X8X36 sitting downstairs, first range trip will be on the irons and see what my tired old eyes say. With the price for new brass, I thought I'd just get some factory cartridges but they proved to be a bit tough to turn up in town, I did get my grubby mitts on a few boxes though. I will definitely load up on brass for the Roberts.......

    An all round classic.

    Ruger Number 1.
    257 Roberts.
    Manlicher fore stock.

    Very nice rifle, love a mannlicher stock. Pure class, my Ruger #1V was yours’ big brother in .25-06. Killed a bunch of whitetails with it. Sorry that I sold it but I don’t hunt anymore anyway.

    Nice, very nice. with that configuration, I could put up with a rather large grouping. Hopefully, it'll do a lot better than that for you.

    Me likey the stock, just gorgeous, the only thing I would change on mine is the stock to one like that. Words are not gracious enough to describe it.

    I appreciate it but sadly it's in B.C. Canada and getting components across the line is a exercise in futility. Good thing is I get to build a Texas collection also but AR's and a 45-70 for hog hunting dominate so far.....


    Couldn’t help myself, I had the scope for over 2 years before breaking the cellophane. Have to see about a set of lower rings.... It is set way back but when you throw it up at 2.5X it is perfect with both eyes open

    I was looking at that same model in 6.5x55, but I went another route. Still looking for a good #1 at a great price. What really caught my eye was the stainless and wood combo. Right beside the displayed #1 was a gorgeous fiddleback maple stocked bolt action in 6.5x55 in stainless with a sporter octagon barrel. Congrats on that beauty Dak.
