  1. You are one lucky person to have it for $600 only. In Canada, it is $1899 plus GST and PST (total 15% tax) so around $2185 and a box of federal premium ammo is close to $70 in 300wsm
  2. Great story for sure, thanks for sharing your experiences.

    Steve, You are making history!!! Great job... Thanks a million for sharing this info in details. I am sure lots of unhappy owners will be happy again.
  4. My God!! I was concentrating so much on the gun and the layout in the case that I didn't even noticed the case model on the top. See what R1 can do to your mind?
  5. This is nice looking case. what is the model # for this case?
  6. Sheperd, I got mine from West verginia Cabelas store for $1199 plus tax. It is 300 win mag with comfertec R1 with 24" barrel. Hope this give you some idea.
  7. Chronos, Thanks a lot of the great info and I will look into these sites in detail. I don't think I have restricted firearm, at least they are not restricted in US. I have a benelli M1 shot gun, savage 30-06 rifle, R1, Ruger .22 and a Glock pistol Model 35, 40 cal, and 5 inch barrel) Looks like I will be contacting you a lot for more info on Canada and settling there. thanks again.
  8. Chronos, I am moving to Canada in Summer 06 for good. I can bring one for you but the Canadian guns laws are so dang tough that I will have trouble bringing my own guns to Canada. May be you can guide me little bit on the Canadian gun laws.
  9. R1 Owners, Happy New to you All!!!! May God bless all of us with more Benellies and more game animals with our R1s. [ 01-01-2006, 03:55 PM: Message edited by: shekaree ]
  10. When I was buying my R1, the guy at WV Cabelas told me to tighten the sprint cap to the point where it STOPS. He told me NOT to tighten it any more once it stops. I am doing it and so far, after about 80 shots, no problem.
  11. Iowahunter, I am getting a 1" group at 100 yard with Hornady 180 gr bullets. There is no problem with the case ejection with the mounts (at least I didn't notice it) every case goes out fine. The barrel locking cap was also not loose but the cap/screw that is mounted on the forearm (the last thing you tight on your gun) gets little loose after few shots and I just tight it right away. Question for you Iowahunter!! Do you use same user name for some digital camera forum too? [ 12-23-2005, 02:06 PM: Message edited by: shekaree ]
  12. Not sure about the WSM but my 300 win mag sure shoot like a 270.
  13. I was looking for a extra magazine for my gun and I found this. Link I didn't know that interchangeable barrels are already out. [ 12-18-2005, 09:44 PM: Message edited by: shekaree ]
  14. OK people, Finally I found a shooting range here in NC about one and half hour drive one way with 4 different boxes of shells for my new R1 300 WM Comfertec. I shot 80 bullets. I started at 25 yards and in the end, I got a group or 1" at 100 yard with Hornaday 180 gr and 1" ~ 1.5" with Winchester Supreme AccuBond 180 gr. I am really very happy with the recoil. I did feel a little in the first few shots but after that, I didn’t felt any. To be honest, I felt less recoil in R1 then my Savage 30-06 with 180 gr Remington bullet. I shot both guns today. I wish the shooting range was close to my place but a three hours drive was worth going to range and shooting 80 shots. No jam at all but the barrel gets really hot pretty soon. I think that is normal with that many shots. My conclusion, Benelli R1 300WM Comfortec is worth every penny.
  15. I finally bought mine from WV Cabelas without any trouble. I live in NC
