How do your Hunters shoot?



Log in to see fewer ads
So I am considering getting a Single Six Hunter. But my past Single Six s have not been as accurate as my mkii or browning buckmark taget. I have read enough from people who do not have these guns.
What say you all that have them and shoot them. I love the look as they are a very pretty gun compared to the semi autos. I will be topping with a scope, and my main use will be for squirrel season.

I've got a single six hunter. It's extremely accurate with 22lr. Haven't tried the wmr yet. The only issue I have with it is the front sight being so smail. I recently put on a 2x scope so that I can see the cross hairs better. This thing is putting together some awesome groups with bulk federal hv ammo. I'm going to try some better sv ammo that I have just to see how good it can get. Highly recommended if the weight doesn't bother you.

Have owned many Since Sixes, but only one Hunter. Could have been luck of the draw, but my Hunter could stay right with my best semi-autos at 25 yds from a rest, easily doing under an inch, group after group, with CCI SV and a good scope. Even managed to get some groups at 50 yds that were hanging in that 1" range. Could do the same at 50 with 22 mag. Again, this is one gun, so take it for what it's worth.

My Hunter is a very accurate shooter.

I shoot mine a lot. The sights leave much to be desired, but that's the only drawback I have. It shoots magnums more accurately than 22 lr. The brand of shells also plays a large factor in accuracy in these guns. Mine doesn't like CCI ammo. Winchester seems to shoot the best. In my mind, this is the best 22 handgun on the market. I encourage owners of this gun to try magnums. Very accurate and way fun to shoot.

I have the Hunter and it shoots very well with a Loopy 2X. I did some trigger work on mine because it was poor out of the box. There are some posts on RFC on how to bend the spring and polish some things up for a much improved trigger pull. I would recommend if you put a scope on it you get one that allows you to remove and install without removing either of the sights.

Another 2X scope fan here. Really helps your Ruger Hunter reach its full potential.

When I got my first Single Six Hunter .22 about 15 years ago I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of accuracy and was very surprised the first time out with some of the longer range shots I could make with iron sights. The accuracy convinced me to add a Leupold 2x scope and spring kit which made it a tack driver. The only downside is adding a scope really gives it a nose heavy bias, so shooting off the bench or a tree helps significantly.

Since getting the first Ruger Hunter, I’ve added two more over the past 10 years, in .44 mag and .17HMR. All three have had similar exceptional accuracy, reliability and finish.

Bearhunter- did you end up getting one?

Revolver vs semi-auto

If you have a revolver that shoots as well as your semi-auto you are indeed fortunate.
A revolver's cylinder may have anywhere from 5 to 10 "chambers" that must line up perfectly with the barrel. A semi-auto's "chamber" is machined as part of the barrel. Most all semi-autos also have a faster "lock time" than a revolver, making a semi-auto easier to shoot well. IHMSA recognized these differences early on adopting a separate class for revolvers. It was not considered fair to have revolvers compete against single shots & semi-autos.
