Nice shooting. Love that buttstock lumber too.

I am a Swift fan myself, nice group, that's the best butt stock I've seen on a #1.

Another 1V Swifty

As they say, "hindsight is 20-20." Of all the rifles I have owned that I sold and would like back, my Ruger No. 1V in 220 Swift tops the list.

Here it is:


Here are two consecutive 5-shot, 100 yard groups, using the bag, bipod and scope in the picture, but shot from a regular bench at my club:


Here is a closeup of the second group with a dime for scale.


The dime measured .71" Subtract .224" and you see any group that will fit under a dime cas a center to center measurement of .468" or less. Therefore, I count any such 100 yard group as better than 1/2 MOA, which is pretty darn good for medium to long distance varmint shooting.

Nope, they are right, those Number Ones just aren't accurate.

Just ordered my first No.1 in 220 Swift. Can you share some info?
Scope brand etc.
Height of rings? Medium?
Load you used. Looks like 4064 powder. Bullet? Brass? Primer? Powder amount?

Thanks!

Hi, thanks for asking? I`m shooting 55 gr. Nosler Varmageddon bullets in front of 38 gr. of Reloder 15 with Wolf primers. This works very well in my #1 as you can see.
