There is a Ruger #1 for sale in that calibre if you're interested.

You are correct. Lots of people think All Weather" means care free. No so. They need the same care as any rifle and any moisture caused by quick change of temperature needs to be addressed just like that from rain or snow.

All depends on what model you have in some cases

I owned a remington 7400 weather master in 3006 and that thing was as close to maintenance free as one could get IMO

 Yes every gun has to be cleaned from time to time but this model was not even comparable to the care a blued version would need in the same conditions and it was only plated not stainless. The very first ones of production guessing 500 had wood and then switched to synthetic stock sets and many older guys tossed the plastic and put vintage wood on them regardless.  

 Plus it had a nice look to me smile.png with the wood

 Cheers

That is a good looking rifle. Something about stainless or plated in this case and wood.

That sounds like the root I may take if I cannot find what I would like. I want an action with CRF and stainless is not necessary. I do have a P17 complete rifle but it has the military peep sight and would need to be milled if I want to scope it. I too , like the look of the Boyd's Heritage stock. Let us know how the 225 pills work out.


Shot a best-of-the-day 0.6 inch group at 100 yds with 57.5 gr of IMR 4064 (2600 fps). Good group at 58.0 gr, too (2650 fps). Going to explore that range of charge weight a bit more.

That's good shooting. Sounds like your on to an excellent recipe.
