Default Ruger No. 1 owners?

Anyone own a Ruger No 1? (Or have much experience with them)


I am sure this isn’t meant to be a “precision” rifle but am wondering what sort of accuracy you are able to get out of them...

What caliber do you have?
Do you have a scope on it or open sights?
What do you use it for?
Are you able to get 1 MOA or better?


There is one in .308 I can’t stop oogling at

Probably my most wanted rifle that I've never owned. I like the stock all the way to the muzzle and single shot and action. Great rifle. I'm envious.

Have one in .30-'06. No. 1B Std. Have a Leupold VX-2 3-9 scope.
I've used it on deer and elk. Most certainly MOA with Hornady 180 Interlock and H4350. These are superb rifles. Mine is from 1990. Ruger barrel[I believe].

They are nice rifles but accuracy is not going to be the same as a modern bolt action. Some of them shoot under 1 moa but most are closer to 2-3 moa. Still plenty accurate to shoot a game animal if you can get close enough. Mine is a 7mm Mag.

There was a point in time that I had six in the safe.

375 H&H
338 Gibbs (my favorite)
300 Win Mag
270 Win
6mm Rem
220 Swift

Only one left is the Gibbs.

I love them, but found myself wanting something else and they were becoming safe queens.

They will shoot very well if you work up loads and tune them a little. I've actually shoot sub 1/2" groups with 225 grain 338 TTS slugs. My 338 mag won't do that. But I must confess, there is a lot work put into the Gibbs.

Don't go into one thinking 3/8" groups, can be done with certain rounds, but not the norm.

If you are looking for a reliable hunting rifle with allot of cool factor, can't go wrong.

All of mine were early rifles before Ruger started making their own barrels. Not fond of the hammered forged barrels they use now, so look for an older one.

I have one in 375 H&H, another in 458 WM and lastly in 220 Swift. All are used for punching paper. The 375 up to 100 yds, the 458 generally 50 yds and the 220 Swift out to 350 yds. The 375 has a 2 to 7X and the 458 a 1 to 4X with German No4 reticle. The 375 and 458 are accurate enough. I reload and use hard cast 350 grain 45/70 loads out to 100 yds and generally get about 1.5" groups.

The 220 Swift is a varmint version and as is to be expected I had to fiddle with it to get good groups. The forend is entirely free floated, from the barrel and the receiver. That got me 1" groups @ 100 yds. Prior to that I had some stringing and 2" groups.

The No1 is notorious for being finicky and the Ruger Forum is loaded with all sorts of fixes from the simple Hicks accurizer to freefloating.

I also have a No3 in 223 that shoots terrific. Haven't really kept track of group size but like my Remington 788 it's lots of fun to shoot and pretty much anything tonic can sized gets hit all day long out to 200 yds.

I have ended up with one of each 1A 7X57, 1B 7mm Rem Mag, 1H 458 Win Mag, 1S 300 Win Mag, 1V .223 and an RSI 30-06. All will shoot 2". I can cover a 5 shot group from the 1V with a quarter. Shop for an earlier one with a red buttpad. The wood is nicer. Also earlier ones had 3 screw triggers allowing a lot of adjustment. There is a book on the No1 by Clayton that is a must read. Check the area between the receiver and wood for any corrosion. In 72 or 74 Ruger used some wood that had been salt dried and it ruins the gun.
In the past few years Ruger has made some in odball calibers for one of their distributors. It was an effort to keep Bill Rugers halo gun from dying. They were plagued with 2x4 quality wood and complaints of workmanship.

Have a 45-70 No3 with open sights, it is soda can accurate to hundred yards. Kicks like a mule with Ruger only loads LOL, but really fun to shoot with trapdoor safe loads.

I inherited my Dad's #1 in .30-06. I know he had it at least since the early 1980s.

Nice gun. I've shot it once, but I didn't measure the groups.

A friend of mine had one in .458 Winchester that he had rechambered to .460 Weatherby, which is insanely powerful. After shooting it I felt like I lost a fight.

Inherited my dads 300 win mag. 1B with Leupold 4-12 on it.
She’s a beauty and a shooter from what I remember when he got it 20 years ago.
But it’s a safe queen.
Bolt action much more practical for hunting.
Thinking of developing a load for it. Maybe 200 or 210 grain pills for long range target so it can get used

Default 338 Gibbs No. 1

This is my 338 Gibbs, Octagon Barrel.

I love this rifle, the forearm is fully floated.

Forming cases is a bear, the shoulder is moved out approx .100" from the 338/06. Start out with a 35 Whelen case, neck up to 375, then back to 35 for a false shoulder, then to 338 false shoulder. Then run it through the 338 Gibbs die just enough so the case will allow the falling block to close tightly.

The photo shows another 338/06 improved we played with, 338 Rice. The shoulder has not been moved out, still at the standard 06 lenght.

The Gibbs will throw a 225 grain Barnes about 25-50 fps slower than a 338 Mag without the recoil. Very pleasant to shoot. Does not do well with the 250 or heavier slugs, not enough case.

I formed about a hundred Remington Nickle brass for it, so think I am set for life, lol.

I have a No. 1 V in 25-06 with a 4.5-14 Leupold Vari-X III. It is my favorite rifle. Very accurate, sub MOA with reloads.

I shot a friends No. 1 in 375 H&H and it was fun to shoot.

Had a 1A in .30-06, it was a good shooter but not a tack driver. I've wanted one of the 1As made in .303. Used to see them pop up on Gunbroker but I can't afford the asking price.

I have a #1RSI (International) in 7x57 Mauser and wears a Leupold 2-7x scope on it. Accuracy is better with the 175gr bullet and will get about 2+/- moa (if I do my part). YMMV.

Use: Target, but also it is my primary hunting rig for dear/hog/elk sized animals.

Best regards,
870classic.

I have a Ruger 1B chambered in .270 with a Moyers trigger and handloads it will consistently put 3 shots under an inch. With a 26” barrel it’s shorter than a 22” bolt gun and points like a dream.

I have four Ruger #1 H Tropical rifles. I started with a .375 H&H and I really liked it, but I wanted a left-hand bolt 22-250 even more so I made a trade.
My next #1 I found at a gun show in Eureka. I convinced the fellow that had it that I was the only one silly enough to want a .416 Rigby, and we made a deal. That Rigby has been a great rifle for many years.
Then recently a fellow Calgunner had a #1 H on offer chambered in .458 Lott, you know the one they made because the .458 Win mag was a little weak. It is a great shooter.
Next, since I was collecting #1s, I found a nice one (red pad) in .405 Winchester. I have not shot this one yet. I put a ghost ring aperture in the slot where the original leaf sight went. I am interested to see what it will do with a 400 gr. Woodleigh bullet. I am hoping for 2000 fps.
Last but not least I acquired another red pad .375 H&H and I plan to put a 1-4 scope on it.
I found the Rigby and the Lott to be accurate. I will report further on the .405 and .375.

I have 2 of them - one in 22-250 & another in .270... I can make your decision simple if you just tell me where this .308 that you are looking at is

both of mine are scoped, but be warned that scoping them can be a bit tricky, well not really as I am about to tell you the trick - Ruger offset rings. many have the problem of setting the eye relief as it the factory mount are a bit too far forward and if you chosen optic has a short eye relief you can run out of tube before you get it set properly

as for accuracy, well... the saying minute of deer comes to mind. that said they can be very accurate with a little bit of work & the right loads - I am currently about .5 with the 22-250 (my reloads) & about 1.5/2" (factory ammo) with the .270.
from what I have read the accuracy issues come from the way in which the forend is attached, but it can be remedied with a little bit of bedding work - but once again, I have read this & not actually done it myself.


overall the No. 1 is a great rifle & by all means if the price is right buy it!

My friend had a 1B in 270 that was extremely accurate, but the 1A in 30-06 that I had was terrible.

That makes it a 50/50 chance at getting an accurate one!

I have an AH in 25-06, a B in 6.5 Creedmoor, an RSI in 7x57, an S in 300 H&H, an H in 450/400 and an H in 458. I like No. 1 rifles. The only one I've had accuracy issues with is the 25-06. The potential is there, just haven't got there yet. The 300 H&H has hunted Africa and New Zealand. That rifle, the 7x57 and the 6.5 are very accurate. The big ones shoot well, like 1.5" @ 100yds, but they are intended for big animals. I need to get some of the others out in the field.

I had a 1-B in 220 Swift way back with a Leupold 12x scope and
without a lot of handload experimentation it shot consistent 200 yd
5 shot groups of 1.5”. Really only Ruger I liked.

I have a good story about a No.1.

A few years ago I was setting my tables at a gun show up north on Friday. My normal routine is to walk the show after I am set up to see what is out there. I have gotten some really good deals that way.

I walked by a table with a No.1 laying on it. I asked if I could take a look at it (I NEVER pick up anything off a table without asking!)

Upon examining it, I noticed it had an aftermarket barrel with no markings. The owner told me it was a 260 Remington, that perked my interest.

He then told me that it had been purchased for a friend and the friend’s wife would not let him have it, no guns in the house. (Time to get rid of a wife)

He told me he just wanted his $500.00 purchase price back, SOLD! I didn’t have my cash with me, only had a couple hundred in my pocket, so I offered that to him to hold it until I can get back to the room for more cash.

He told me that he knew who I was and had seen me at many shows, no problem, I will hold it. We shook hands. Figured it was a done deal.

The next morning, with cash in hand, I headed straight for his table. He or the gun wasn’t there, figured he had it put back. His partner then informed that there was a problem and he sold the rifle last night…..HUH?

I asked where he was and was told he had a problem at work and would not be back until tomorrow. He assured me that after I here why he sold it, that I would understand….. OK, we will see

I brewed pretty much all day, was not a happy camper.

The next morning I was busy putting all my stuff out on the table when he walked up with his hand out saying “I owe you an apology.”

I shook his hand and said “I thought we had a deal, what happened?”

He told me right after I left, a guy came up to the table and wanted to know where he got that rifle. He explained to the guy that he had purchased it a few months ago from a young man. He was asked to describe the young man.

After a brief description, the guy said “That is my son; I gave him that rifle last summer. He told me it was stolen out of his truck!” How much did you pay him for the rifle? He told him $500

He said that is my rifle and I wants it back, how much do I have to pay you?

The guy that had the rifle explained that he had promised it to me and did not want to go back on his word.

He said I am sure the guy will understand I want my rifle back and pulled his wallet out.

He told me he was really torn on what to do, but he ended up letting the guy have it for the $500.00.

I shook his hand again and said “You did the absolute right thing, no hard feelings. I am glad the guy got his rifle back.”

Then he told me with a chuckle after the guy paid for the gun, with a smile on his face he said “Pretty sure there is a young man out there that will be wearing this for a Pogo Stick” and just walked away

I remember the 1970s gunshows when the Ruger Number Ones were $400 bucks.

Had to settle for a couple junker Springfield 1903s for less than $100 a piece. The old dudes thought they had a real pigeon and tried selling me obsolete WW2 German 8mms too.

My #1 V in 22-250 was my first big boy rifle that I ever bought 12 years ago. I’ve used it to hit plenty of squirrels. Took a while to figure out a load that it liked, but settled with one that stayed under 1 MOA for the life of the factory barrel.

I’ve shot a few No 1s ...22K Hornet, 22-250, 243, 7Mag but I actually own an 458WinMag that I bought because I had an 1.5-4X VX3 in a closet with nothing “correct” to put it on... I’ll shoot it one of these days.

I’ve never found any of them to be that accurate but busting caps is always fun.

I had one in 22-250, wish I still had it. Worked up some handloads that would put 3 holes at 100 yards you could cover with a nickle.

I just put my money on a new 44 magnum #1.
Better part of a two thousand dollar bill.
This better be fun.

I've been looking for 12 years, but I just paid under a grand for my No. 1 RSI in 7x57.

Yep. I didn't know what I was bidding on, but thought it was cool, and picked up my 7x57 for $450 by accident. Now I appreciate impulse buying a bit more. .. :-)
