"Don't knock it unless you tried" was how I came about a single shot. Ruger #1 B, 257 Roberts.

Have killed with a TC Encore in 25-06 back 15-20 years ago when they were all of the rage.

Had a Contender 44 Mag 10" once, never hunted it.

Guess I'm 15-20 years behind the times, Brian !!

I've used single shots from H&R, T/C, and CVA. The H&R had a super stiff trigger, but they've all worked well otherwise. Now I am down to just two CVA models: A stainless Apex in .35Whelen and a Scout Compact in 7mm-08. I liked that both were ready to go, out of the box (no trigger jobs needed). I do really like how compact they are.

Not only single shot, but vintage with vintage iron sights. There is much to be said about hunting versus shooting...

These are my two favorite single shots but I have a Handi-Rifle with a few additional barrels that gets used, just not as much as they should.
Shrapnel, nice pics.

I've hunted with quite a variety of single shots, including several Ruger #1's. They're Ok and I like the single shot hunting experience, but Nothing has satisfied me as much as hunting with this Krieghoff Hubertus. Well balanced, accurate, handles like a dream, and I think it looks wonderful. It's a keeper!

Recently acquired a #1 in 30-06 for rifle areas & an Ithaca 66RS in 20ga for shotgun areas. Looking forward to getting my next deer with either gun.

Love my encore 270. Killed a bunch of deer and hogs with it and an Axis buck. My other single shot I use a few days a year in muzzleloader season. A CVA 50 cal. It shoots great. Killed a few deer and hogs with it.

I have officially declared my favorite hunting rifle to be my Merkel K3 Extreme in 30-06. Last week while in WV I took a nice 8 pointer and a coyote with it. To help mitigate the recoil of such a lightweight rifle I shoot Hornady reduced recoil ammo. It makes my little rifle a joy to shoot and I’ve found the 125 grain bullets to be quite accurate and they do a number on deer!

I do most of my hunting with Blaser K95s.

The photo is from my last hunt, this past Saturday in the French Alps, with a 270 loaded with 130gr Bergers.

This picture which would appear as a ‘claim’ that RoundOak killed it with his Ruger #1 in 257 Bob is BS.

RoundOak is a lying fûck, that has been playing all Fire Members for 13 years. He’s been exposed as a fraud!

Aside from muzzleloaders, have a Ruger #1 in .257 Roberts. I haven’t hunted with it in a few years because I have been playing around with some other rifles. I plan to use the #1 extensively next year. I really enjoy that rifle!
