    Hello all,
    sometimes I hate technology. my brother and I usually swap our "Crazy Gun Idear(R is intentional) of the Day" via text message and my brother usually talks me out of a lot of the really crazy ones but today he brought up one he was considering and it reminded me of one of mine that I thought was dead and gone: the Ruger No1

    I was originally considering this model in 303 brit or a specialty caliber conversion but now that idea has evolved into 30-06 since I know of a secret place that has a large amount of 30-06 ammo for super cheap. now that my caliber choice has branched out I see that my options are between the No1 light sporter and the International. I have always been a sucker for Mannlichers and having a breach loader would definitely add that little oddity to the arsenal that I've been looking to add.

    I know the No1 is hit or miss on accuracy depending on the round it's chambered in. is the 30-06 more of a match grade level of accuracy or is it hunting level accuracy?

    has anyone noticed difference in accuracy between the sporters and internationals?

    has anyone has this particular configuration and chambering?

    I don't think caliber has any bearing on the accuracy. Most #1s shoot fine, some benefit from a modification to the fore-end hanger that bears on the barrel.

    I like the RSI. I also like the sporter model. Choose your favorite.

    saxonpig, that is a great collection. how would you rate the accuracy on the 30-06? that's the exact gun I am currently in love with.

    Only shot it once so far and it was doing 1.5-2" groups which is hunting accuracy.

    I know on this forum all God's chillen got .5" rifles but mine never seem to shoot that well.
