Hmmm, the one and only No.1 would definitely be the International model in .270 caliber, I start drooling every time I think of the one I passed up at a gun show several years ago.

I shot one of these about 20 years ago, Extremely accurate, with a beautiful stock. The owner wouldn't sell......

I'd take a serious look at the recent 1A's in 7.62x39 as well....

Have 2 No1B's. 243 and 300 WM. Have taken a lot of deer and elk, respectivly, with them. Look like twins with slightly different Leopold scopes. The 243 is fun to shoot at targets and varmits besides deer. The 300 WM only fun to shoot at elk!

I think No. 1B's are just about "IT".

I'm a 1S guy... love the heavy barrel. My No. 1S in 30-06 would be hard to beat as an overall gun.

Bob Lewis will become famous soon enough
Be careful! It is hard to have just one!! I have a .22 Hornet, .218 Bee 1Bs and a .243 Winchester 1V, thought I could get by with 1.
For just one though,and your description of intended use the .243 or .257 come to mind.

any?.....

A 358 Winchester in a medium barrel with sights. Or a full stock, or a 'B' model even. However it's not been made that I know of.
That's why I have a .35 Whelen walnut/blue. It will do fine as the 'short' Ruger #1 action handles longer cartridges quite well.

I'm with Bob. I'm learning real quick that these Ruger single shots are crazy addictive.

I buckled like a cheap card table. I put a new 9.3x62 on layaway today. I could of just bought it but layaway allows me at least a little bit of dignity in my failed attempt to not buy another gun. My penance will be to wait the full 90 days before I pay it off. Sure I will............

Easy for me, since I only have one; it is 45-70. Quite a thumper!

Petrol and Powder has a spectacular aura aboutPetrol and Powder has a spectacular aura about
What the OP is really asking is "which caliber".

If we take into consideration the OP's desire to stay in the range of smaller calibers, the classics such as 45-70 are out of the running.

The .243 WIN would be a pretty good all around caliber. The 7mm-08 is great cartridge that would ring steel and be a little less sensitive to crosswinds.

BUT - for me the choice would require no discussion or thought - it would be the 7 x 57 (7mm Mauser or 275 Rigby for you English types).
In fact, I just went to the Ruger website and see that the 7 x 57 is currently offered.
Now I'm looking at what I can sell in order to fund that purchase. Thanks, now I have a problem.

Way back when, I would have said .270 or 30-06 in a 1A or 1B

More recently it would have been the same models but in 7mm-08, 243, or 30-06

Today...... wow..... same as above I guess..... pick one and shut up and be happy LOL

I would like to see them make one in 6.5 Grendel.

I'm right there with you. That would be my pick of the flock.
