Really haven't heard. Passed on a RSI .303 last year @ $1800.00, only 17 or 18 produced. Maybe now wish I wouldn't have, Coogs.

Just wanted to kick off this thread again on the off chance that some one has had a chance to play with a .303 and maybe give a performance review or opinion on these(1A0.....they are a really well balanced little carry rifle for sure ...pure class to hold and point but i am a little apprehensive on the accuracy thing as some say there barrels measured our at .314....????.

As far as accuracy most 303 guns need at least .311 bullets you need to check. As a result of lack of standardization some rifles will not shoot factory ammo well.

I have been shooting one for a while now and love it! Quite accurate and not toooo fussy, but I might call it a bit load sensitive, but who cares if you can find at least one good load. Well some might but I dont. Mine loves Sierra ProHunter 180 bullets, especially with W760, which is I guess the same as H414. I get sub MOA groups with my load which is 51 grs of 760. As the .303 Brit has nearly the exact same capacity as the .308 Win, there is no reason it cannot match its velocity using a strong platform like the No.1. As with any No.1, attention must be payed to bench technique. I simply place the rear of the forend on the bags and try not to see-saw back and forth, or vertical stringing may result. Otherwise have at it and blaze away. Got mine new for, if memory serves right at $900. Good luck!

I have slugged my Ruger No1 in 303Brit and three others and they were all exactly 0.314". Also talking to some fellow members of another forum in the States it turns out that their rifles were also exactly 0.314".

Huge pain in the rear.

I'm thinking of sizing down Woodleigh 0.318" bullets when (if, haha) I get around to making a die.
