I like my #1 International in 275 Rigby. I have had others but prefer this one. No question when in a #1 id a short action or long action is better for the 275 Rigby.

I'm sorry, I omitted the link in my earlier post. Go to this page and click on the first two "+" links: "Compact, simple falling-block...." and "Sliding tang safety....." and look how rough the workmanship is. I can't imagine a major company putting pictures like that on their web site.

I did. 25-06 heavy barrel. Approx. 1980 model.
Accurate with good trigger. Loved the gun for deer. Traded it for a hog gun years ago that held 5 rounds.

I have and I still own the little darling. 7 x 57, bought it in '87, I think it was. Scoped with a Leupold variable, 1.5 x 5. no bell, seemed to be a perfect marriage.
Minute of angle accuracy with both Hornady 139 grain and Federal Premium 140 grain ammo. Never tried any other cartridges, didn't feel to need to look any farther. I'll also mention that I ain't the greatest rifle shooter to be found. Moderate recoil, not very loud - a genuine pleasure to shoot.
Haven't used it since I took up bowhunting, which was in '05. Would post a photo, but it is it my son's gunsafe (along with all my other rifles) as I type this reply.

Wow, that rifle looks like it went on a 3 day bender. Nobody even thought to Photoshop out the rough edges? Ruger's marketing department needs a wake up.

The sure look like Ruger #1's. They even say Ruger #1 on them for some reason.

I wonder if they are Ruger #1's?

I even had a build thread on the 257.

Well, that does indeed appear to be a Ruger #1.

The .257 Weatherby and .270 Weatherby are different calibers than the .257 Roberts and the .270 Winchester calibers.
And I thought proprietary to Weatherby manufactured rifles (unless custom built)? And I sure as hell didn't know that Weatherby ever made rifles in any other action than the bolt action? I guess I was (am) wrong?

I haven't researched Ruger or any other firearms companies in quite a long time because I'm not in the market for any new rifles. Truth is; I'm old, the fire has burned to embers and I've pretty much told my son that they already belong to him, that he doesn't necessarily have to wait until I'm dead to take possession. They're all at his home, in his gunsafe anyway. Told him to use 'em. And he has.


Sorry about that.

Bob, there are other manufactures that chamber Weatherby cartridges. I have had Remington factory rifle in 300 Weatherby and a Howa in 257 Weatherby. There are other manufactures that chamber for them as well such as Ruger .

Killed my first elk in 1997 with a Remington 700 chambered in 300 WBY.

As stated, I'm way behind the times. And I don't know how I ever got it in my head that Weatherby calibers were proprietary to Weatherby manufactured rifles. I guess I must have dreamed it.

I cheated on the 257wby, it's a custom build before Ruger started making them
