I have that rifle. I agree with most. It is hard to shoot out a #1.

Great looking gun and scope.

I might suggest you stay away from FMJ rounds though. Just me...…

My suggestion for an accurate and good performance hunting load is one of the 165 gr premium loads. Google "165 grain 30-o6" and look around. Stick with high quality ammo and the gun will love you.... LOL

Good luck with your rifle.

I have a Ruger No. 1 International I bought back in the late 70s in 30-06. If I live long enough to shoot it out I will post.

FWIW, (have not read beyond the above) I have 03a3 barrel and action I crafted into a sporter, 15 years ago, shot MOA then and still does...but you never know. Some get shot; some not!

That said, Ruger #1's can have some little idiosyncrasies. So shoot it with a couple different brands and bullets and report back. If accuracy is not what you want/expect, there are some tricks, but lets see what it can do first.
+1.
