VERY nice rifles - AS USUAL - Paul!

Yeah, I spent a couple of hours on the web yesterday researching #1 and #3 "accuracy", and find LOTS of folks that report getting very good precision from theirs. If only half of them are telling the truth, there are plenty of "accurate" Ruger SSs. I read a lot about the "hanger", and I understand the issue. I'll probably address it before I even shoot the thing. The 'fix' just makes sense.

The 28" barrel isn't for extra muzzle velocity. I can get all I need (or want) with a 21" barrel. What the longer barrel allows me to do is get the velocity I want with LESS PRESSURE. In a sense, it's 'more velocity', if you consider the "same" pressure. With the 28" barrel, I can get 2100 f/s from the 400-grain bullet with the same pressure I get with the 24" barrel barrel but only 1850 f/s MV. Plus the added weight mitigates the recoil too.

I'll keep you posted on the progress of this project.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32
