I own three No. 1's. I love the way they feel. The wood on all of them is beautiful. My Hornet shoots around corners. I don't know what to do about it. I'm working on different loads. My .357 magnum is one of my very favorite rifles and since I shoot it off of iron sights it shoots fine. My 45/70 is a real killer; at both ends. I'd like to have one in 270 or '06. While not all of mine shoot all that well, I just love the old fashioned action and the heft of the rifles.
