Well last month I told that I had purchased a Ruger #1 in 450 Bushy. Said I would send in a report on the firearm after getting a chance to shoot it. I had a hip replacement and was finally able to get out. Almost everyone complained about Ruger putting the rifling at 1/10. Here are the results on my Ruger. The bottom three holes on the head are mine at 25yds. The three holes a little higher are my sons. Using a Trijicon 1-4x24 30mm scope with green triangle. This reticle is not for target shooting, but is fantastic in the deer woods. I have used this scope for the last six seasons for deer on my 450 Bushy AR, a Contender 44 Mag and a Contender 45-70. Always loved the Ruger #1 and grabbed one up when I saw them in the 450.
Tried to submit photo about 10 times had to reduce to nothing, hopefully it can be seen.
Enjoy

seeing photo bucket went stupid, I'm playing with a new site Hoot recommended.

I had a slight issue with my #1 450B in a previous post with the fired case hitting the safety and not fully ejecting. Apparently this has been a hit/miss issue with #1's in general.

So I peeled her down yesterday and filed the front back then radiused it off, problem fixed. Also flattened out the front and back some so she don't look like a ski slope.

for a 10T barrel, this thing is amazing me with the factory and first reloads thru it.

this was a 275gr Barnes stretched out over a big dose of 300MP, no signs of pressure. I need to break the chrono out one of these days and see where things are.

Ran into Randy from Randy Hunting Ceter today, said he got some regular #1's, blued, walnut, with sights, no brake.

Didn't ask a.price, but guessing they won't last long.
