    I used a Model 1885 Low Wall in .223 as a varmint rifle. I preferred the Ruger's sliding safety to cocking the hammer on the Browning. It was definitely a tack driver but so pretty that I didn't like taking it out in bad conditions.

    Well, Paul, if I decide not to keep this one, you'll get a PM, lol!
    I took it out and shot a bunch of factory ammo and some handholds with no real joy.
    Then I fired my only three rounds of 160 LeverEvolution and they made one ragged hole. I'd estimate group size at less than half an inch.
    I'm going to try that load again and see if it was a fluke or not. That gives me an excuse to take my Marlin .30-30 Ackley out for a side-by-side comparison.

    I have one in 7mm-08. An accurate rifle. The challenge I had was to find a scope with suitable eye relief. I finally went with a Vortex Scout. That said, I love it.

    Scope mounting can be a challenge on the #1 because the mounts are further forward than on a bolt action. When I had mine I was lucky enough to locate a pair of hard-to-find Ruger extension rings.

    Mine just would be better with a touch more eye relief. I'll get just one extension ring for the rear.
