The No. 1A in 6.5x55 is my all-time favorite hunting rifle. Nice work.
Thanks! For the hunting I do (sub 200 meters in the woods), the Ruger #1 is ideal. I have Rugers in 6.5x55 Swede, 275 Rigby, 303 British & 9.3x74r and all of them will put a deer in the freezer if I do my job.
A couple of weeks ago, I was here for primitive season & managed to get one with my Browning 1885 shooting a 180gr .44 Magnum. That was a heart shot that dropped another deer in its tracks which was great because I was running out of daylight fast. It’s been a good start to the season.
