I've found my next rifle.

Here's the place to talk about your long guns.

Great gun...nice find. I've got one just like it and it is the only rifle that still goes deer hunting with me. The Guide Guns are definitely cool but there ain't much wrong with a "plain" 1895. Let us know how it does.

NICE! Does it have Ballard rifling or the Microgroove rifling?

Didnt get to shoot my 45-70 this past weekend, so I stopped by my local gun shop on the way home today for a box of ammo. Planning on trying again Saturday. DAMN that box of 45-70 was expensive :shock: ............. WAAAAY too expensive ;) . Seems the box was a little oversized too. Oh well, I bought it anyway.

This box of ammo ended up costing me alot more than it should have though. You see when I walked in the door I immediately looked on the used rack for a guide gun. No go, as usual. then as I am asking for my ammo, I noticed something sitting in amongst the new guns. 30 minutes later I was headed home with a new friend, and a nice little dent in my savings.
Heres a hint.

Really? REALLY?????
I swear, I just ran into a buddy of mine the other day and asked him if he had bought any new toys. He said, "as a matter of fact I did!". Can you guess what he bought? :roll:

Everyone's buying my next rifle but me! :cry:

You had better post more pics and some range reviews.

Any drawbacks to a 16" barrel Pa?

The only major drawback, if it is one at all, is the reduction in velocity due to the shorter barrel. The .308 isn't as sensitive to barrel length as other calibers though so it's not as big of an issue.
Published velocities are usually from a 22" barrel. With the 16.5" Ruger you can likely expect 150 to 200fps velocity reduction. Hornady has their Superformance ammo line which gives higher than normal velocities out of any given caliber. I saw some chrono figures from a Ruger Scout with this ammo and it is pushing their 165gr SST bullet at 2,646fps. Not too shabby if the accuracy is good! I would expect most normal load to come in about 100fps slower than that.

Can someone post a picture of that Ruger? I can't access websites at work that have to do with weapons, porn, or jobs.
