Ruger No. 1 264 Win Mag.

I'm thinking of purchasing a new Ruger No. 1 in 264 and I was just wondering if anyone new what the barrel twist rate was of this rifle? I have looked at several different sites and I can find twist rates for other calibers, but not this one. Thank you, Scott.

1x9 I just started shooting mine, it appears to be a shooter.

Nomo...how long is the lead in the chamber... Can you load a 140 or a 160 out so there is not so much of the bullet shank below the case neck?

I have always wanted a .264 but I never bought one because of the issue with having to deep seating bullets in a bolt gun...

Thanks...Bob

Look at my edited post, Ruger told me 1x9, why I had 1x8 typo I don't know. I
would rather have a 1x8, but the 140 will work if pushed with a 264WM and bigger.

It has a short throat, which really ticked me off, esp. in a single shot where you can maximize performance with a long throat. The good news is the throat can be made any length you want at an ecomical price. I will do that if I decide to use the 140 Berger. But nothing is lost using this throat with the lighter bullets & it looks like I will get the 120BT in the 3450-3500fps range & now that the bullet is tougher it is bad news. I am shooting .75moa range now & it is not really broken-in yet. This is poison out to 6-700 yds. for Deer & I did not buy the rifle for ultra long range, I have a Sendero 300 for that, but I wanted a rifle with the flattest traj. possible out to 500yds & go a little further under the right conditions.
I think I am there.

I have always wanted either a .257 Weatherby or .264 Winchester... Just purchased a Remington 700 CDL stainless fluted with 26" barrel in .257...if that doesn't work out I will look at one of these...

Thanks for the information...Bob

I started to get one of those, but the guy was a little too high, very nice rifle!
Using the 120BT in the 264WM or the 115 in the 257WM is almost identical in performance.

I hope you have a shooter!
