I had a E.Arthur Brown-Hicks accurizer installed on my 257 Weatherby Ruger No.1 and it made all the difference in the world.Went from 4 inch groups to cutting paper.I highly recommend this fix.:D

Did you do it yourself or have someone install it for you?

Heh, I remember when Hicks sold the rights to his device to EABCo. He couldn't keep up with demand from his shop after some gun rag did an article on it. He was real happy about it over at snipersparadise.

He explained something about harmonic stabilization but I didn't pay much attention since I'm not a #1 shooter.

Just curious. Why not send it back to Ruger? They put a note with my #1 that if I was not satisfied with the accuracy to send it back, but to NOT modify it first.

I have not shot it enough to say yet, but right now it is about a 1.5" gun with no tuning.
