I've wanted a #1 with a 26" barrel and in 30-06 caliber for a long time and finally found one. I put a Nikon 3x9 scope on it and rolled up some 165gr Hornaday soft points then took it to the range. I zeroed 2" high @ 100yds and my group size is about 1". The only draw back is loading can be a bit of a pain having to slide the cartridge in under the scope. I think this is more of a bench shooting issue, in the real world I can drop the muzzle a bit and the cartridge will drop right in. I like it a lot and it kicks way less than my .338 so it will get shot more for fun.
