Re: Ruger #1 7mm STW
I have a blued version in 7mm stw and it shoots very well. #1's are known for vertical stringing because of the spring tension design into the forearm. Freefloating the barrel and adjusting the tension usually will work. Search on here because there have been some good threads in the past on accurizing the #1. It is a great rifle and was a good platform for the 338-378 wby when it was a wildcat cartridge since minimal work was needed on the falling block action to turn about any #1 into the biggest 338's off the 378 wby and 416 rigby cases. Also with a 30" barrel it is about the same length as a mk 5 wby with a 26" barrel. I have several of them.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
