What have U shot with your R-1

Recommended Posts

If your R1 was lost or damaged beyond repair would you considering buying another one? You seem to have great deal of experience with this gun. I'm considering buying one but would appreciate your advice on this matter. Thanks.

No Sir, My R-1 and I have had a great run. I have shot out the barrel and have chosen a bolt action as my go to weapon. I have some big bear hunts planned and I needed more firepower.

 

Good luck with your shopping...

Took a nice 4x4 Mulie at 279 yards at first light (thanks illuminated Nightforce) with 270 WSM R1 and A4350/150 gr gameking. Prettier than my 300 winmag R1 but a real pain to get to shoot.

I wanted to post pics of my moose. Shot with an Argo El .300 win mag. (european version of R1). I can't figure out how to add pics from my album so you'll have to go to my album on this site to see this moose. 100yrds. Shot in the head. 15 min. of legal hunting time left in the day. On private road.

He is real American Hunter. He doesn't need to be propped up by advertising dollars, traded for favorable reviews in a magazine. And he obviously doesn't need to shoot African zoo animals to prove his mettle.

Thanks Tuck,

 

I'm still out hunting hard, just walking with a different bank stick these days. Here are a few of the critters I ran into this season.

Shot my first deer this Friday just before dark with my first rifle. An R1 .300 WSM equipped with a Nikon Monarch 4-16/50. Took her from the top of a ridge shooting at a steep angle from about 225-250 yards. Perfect shot through the heart. She didn't go more than about 5 yards. Soon realized that pulling a heavy deer up a steep incline in the dark is very hard work but well worth it. Love shooting this R1. I was worried about the recoil of the round but it's like shooting my dads 308 bolt. Can't wait for Elk season!

Very nice, sir!

Now how about some details on the new rig?

hope this works, i'm not a computer guy. But this rifle in 300wsm only kicks like a .243 or less. Was a 200 yard shot in the neck.(that's all i could see) If i ever figure out the cycling problem with this gun, it will be my new favorite!

Nice pictures, Steve. Looks like you've been busy. How do you like the new shootin' iron. Seems to be treating you well. I know it requires less attention in the bad weather. Also wanted to thank you for your years of service, protecting people like me, on this veterans day..Mike God Bless the Veteran...

Awsome photos. Been out west last two years elk hunting. Hoping to get a trip to alaska moose hunting next. Love the pics of the bear tracks in the sand. Gotta tell you your pics make that place look like heaven for a sportsman. Loved it out west but that looks even more impressive
