1. I'm in the market for a new rifle.
2. Have a chance at a new Ruger No1 in .257r
3. I don't mind single shot rifles. If you can't do it with the first shot then go home
4. I already reload
I've always liked the ruger no1, but would like to moderate it also. The bloody gunshop said £200 for threading and recrown and proof!! I nearly fell off my chair. But the rifle new is £650, cases and heads about the norm at £40 and mounts £75. Funny thing is I've never had a new rifle. I also like the idea of being able to re-stock it with a synthetic.
I'm dithering and stuck-----------------sensible thoughts please. And no I don't want a 25-06
