    Ruger No. 1’s are beautiful guns
    cool to see them in another caliber, even if it is a very limited run

    Midway has brass and loaded ammo for sale. Although reloading is much cheaper.
    The 250 Savage came out in 1912 in the Savage model 99 lever action rifle.
    The military should have “adopted” the 250 Savage in WW2. If they had done so, it would probably still be in use today and not the 223 Rem.
    One of the best hunting cartridges for North America (but not heavy enough for bear or moose).
    Nice to see Ruger pick it up, although I’d like to see it in their Model 77. Maybe Browning will chamber it in their lever action.
