    Tucker, you said that you sold your R1, did you feel guilty selling it to someone? I'd like to sell mine, but I'd feel guilty putting it on someone else. I e-mailed Benelli one time and ask them if they'd buy it back and I didn't get an answer. Al
  2. EVGUSTAS 84 is sending PMs that when you click to read it, it links you to a porn sight. Al Carlson
  3. I have a R1 300 WSM, after cleaning, the zero changes. Last year I zeroed in at home, then cleaned my rifle, got to Utah, shot at a target 100 yards away, I was six inches low. I made the adjustment, blew the X out of the target. I didn't clean it again till I got home. Got a 5 X 5 bull though. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy it. Al Carlson
  4. Steve, the bore scope sounds like a great tool, I've never used one. I like you clean my weapon like a maniac. Al
  5. Steve, I didn't see where it said how many yards you were shooting. Al
  6. Steve, pretty good shot groups for 200yards! Is the easy trigger easy to install? Al
  7. Well, I wouldn't put out the money, extra scope involved with that. If you want, try Brownell's, here's the link http://www.brownells.com/Default.aspx Al
  8. When I was sighting in, I used cheap Federal Hyshok 180 grain. When I confirmed I was close, I used Winchester Elite XP3 180gr. , because that is what I use on elk. My problem is keeping it sighted in. Another forum member said," it may because during reassembling maybe I didn't tighten the gas cylinder all the way." ( I'll have to experiment ) After shooting all year with it, I cleaned it real good before going elk hunting. When I got to my destination, I shot it to double check, at 100 yards, it shot 6" low. I made the correction on the scope and blew the X out of the target at 100 yards. Next day shot a 5 X 5 bull at a little over 100. An other member posted the picture for me on the What Have You Shot with Your R1 thread. Al
  9. I have a R1 300WSM, I've had no problems as far the action getting fowled. I've shot a lot of rounds through it. Al
  10. I bet that the first time when it shot 12" low at twenty five yards, the mount supplied was on backwards. There is a front and back. It happened to me. I paid the dealer to mount the scope and they put the mount on backwards. I went to the range and had the same problem. I remounted it myself and it worked fine. From now on, I'm always doing my own mounting. Al
  11. Steve, thanks for posting, really nice. Al
  12. Very nice Steve, thanks for posting. Please post the sheep when you get it. Al
  13. I thought that I made a reply before, but I don't see it. What a shame that these great elk had to die that way. What state did this happen and did you take the pictures? Thanks for posting. Al
  14. Steve, thank you for your service in Iraq. It's pretty cool that you had your picture taken with Ollie, he's a great guy and a great American. I support our troops and the mission. Have you noticed that the surge is working, but the only news you'll hear about it is Fox. Being a Vietnam vet, I know how it is to be treated badly. When I was in Nam, it was discouraging to see what went on at home, then when you get home, people treat you like the enemy. I have a picture of me and Maj. General Melvin Zias when he was putting some medals on me. Well this thread is good, I just wish that more R-1 owners would post their pictures. Al
