Re: Ruger #1 in 6.5-284 Review
Ruger has definitely got it together on the #1. I have owned a few older models that were not quite as accurate as the ones coming out lately. I have shot a lot of single shot rifles, that is how I got the nickname "Olsingleshot". I prefer the falling block action in comparison to the break open. I find the falling block more accurate. Maybe that is because you do not need to take it off the rest to reload. The Sharps I owned was extremely accurate. The Wickliffe I own is another accurate falling block. I have found that for me ,personally, the #1 does not handle recoil well in bigger calibers, especially in magnum calibers. But that is for me and it may not bother you.
