Finally got the new 2016 Ruger No. 1 RSI .308 to the range for some initial sight in and my worst fears have may have come to haunt me. Yesterday used the 7 rds left over Federal Power Point 150gr from last years hunting at 50 yd. Fired those 7 rds waiting at least 5 minutes in between and running a bore snake after each shot. Took a little longer than usual to get about dead on at 50 due to me forgetting the Burris Timberline scope is 1/8 MOA vs the usual 1/4. Luckily I was alone and had others been there would have felt like the new Gun Club village idiot. Anyway went back out this afternoon (after stopping at Wally world to get the same Federal 150gr load) to try at 100yd and incurred the dreaded vertical stringing and quit after 8 shots. First couple were understandably low and adjusted to get put the next two at 1" high which is a little low for hunting MPBR. Made slight up adjustment on scope and succeeding rounds were then vertically strung (up to 6 inches) even after using bore snake and waiting at least 5 minutes between rounds. Guess the next step will be to try different ammo but don't want to get into the constant experimentation to get the rifle to become accurate enough to hunt with. If I don't get any success from different factory ammo then will send to back to Ruger with target sheets. If any others incur the same please post. Thanks for the help.

A good friend of mine is an avid No.1 fan.

He does a trick with shimming the forearm stock to play with pressure on the barrel to get his to shoot better. i will have to get the details from him on exact steps.

Yes have heard of fore end shimming but discovered I'll be fine if I wait longer between shots. Problem was barrel heating and a lot slower to cool down due to full length stock. Regrettably I started putting rounds through it right when I got it not knowing only a limited number were produced. Rumor has it only 48. So now I have a collector's rifle sitting in the safe when I was hoping to buy a working rifle. Luckily I have a No. 1 International in .270 too that will become my go to hunting rifle.

There is article on accuracy tips for a Ruger 77 RSI on tactical-life.com that may help.

They free floated the barrel channel glass bedded the action (nd I believe the first 2" of barrel channel and opened up the metal at the muzzle end on the forearm, and then replaced the trigger with a Timney. Was thinking of doing this to my 77 if it won't shoot.

Use that rifle! That's what it was meant for. You certainly sound like someone who takes care of their equipment, I'm betting you will have a beautiful gun years from now and you will be one of a handful of people who get to hunt with it. As you insinuate, most will probably go into collections----which makes yours even more special. By the way, congrats on the gun. Regards, 021
