Re: Ruger #1 in 6.5-284 Review
It looks like Ruger got the twist rate right, something that seems to elude most other manufacturers when it comes to the 6.5's. Half inch accuracy from a factory rifle is also pretty impressive.
On the con side of the ledger, though, is the LOW velocity of the accuracy loads. I don't see the point of shooting a 6.5-284 at 6.5x55 speeds. I don't know if this is a reflection of the rifle or the loads assembled by the author of the article.
I have a Ruger #1A in 7x57 and love it. I have a 6.5x55 in a modern action and love it. From what the author has shown, however, it looks like he took the long way around to get 6.5x55 performance.
