Hi guys this is my first post on this website. I have been reading stuff off this site for a while now and its really sparked me to practice my long range shooting more seriousley and maybe even go to one of the long range hunting classes Im considering on buying a new rifle next summer and i really like how the Ruger No. 1 looks and operates. I want it in 7mm mag or 300 win mag. After i buy it i want to save some money back up again and get a custom barrel, new trigger, and some misc. stuff to improve accuracy as much as possible because i want to get into some long range shooting probably start at 500 yds. and just keep moving out further. I wanted to know if anyone on this forum has had any experience with this rifle and if anyone knows how accurate they are out of the box. Im planning on buying one used off GunBroker.com. gun) Thanks for the advice and comments. Oh also if anyone has any other suggestions on were i should buy it or any other guns i might like they would help alot to.
