Ruger No. 1 …in .45-120? (4K)
Check out this approach to a single-shot hunting rifle, especially if you want to hunt using cast bullets for your reloads. And reload you will, if you use this gun because it’s chambered in .45-120; a cartridge no longer manufactured (although the brass still is).
We even managed to get Matthew Quigley to stop by and share a few pointers!
Cast bullets are great, but they do have their limitations compared to jacketed when it comes to maximum velocities (and even expansion). So what to do? Well, shoot a heavier bullet (535 grain in this case) and make a bigger hole to begin with! (.45 cal)
The rifle shown in this video is a Ruger No. 1, custom-chambered for a cartridge and in a manner not often seen. Highly effective and proven in the field on Canada’s majestic moose, it’s use of peep sights instead of open or scope makes this a fast-shooting and highly accurate firearm.
This video is recorded in 4K video with much-improved sound quality.
