    .280 Ross M1910

    I posted this over on canadian gun nutz as well, but I've been lurking all over the place.

    What I have to share today are a few pictures of my dad's Ross rifle.

    The story goes that my dad got this gun from an older gent in Quebec in the mid 70s, for hunting.

    My dad had all the blue-ing redone, and he sanded and linseed+varethaned the stock himself.

    It's no WW2 gun so I'm not too broken up about it. He did what looks to me like an excellent job. He's also kept it spotless clean and oiled it maybe once every 10 years.

    The gun falls into my hands now, it hasn't been shot in more than 25 years but I aim to change that. He even held onto some ammunition, spent brass and failed primer rounds.

    Here are some pics















    30 bucks for a box of 10.. even in the 70s ammo for this thing wasn't exactly cheap!

    My dad remembers this thing kicking like a horse. He also remembers cutting the head off a coyote with one round..

    The only serial number I found was a 22 stamped underneath the bolt head.

    Any thoughts on 1: finding new ammunition
    2: General value / condition?

    Ammo's tough to find. Bullet is 0.287" diameter so reloading isn't all that easy either. But both ammo and bullets can be had if you search about some. I had a .280 rifle for some time, but with a peep sight. No ammo. Soon after selling it I found a box or two of ammo. Which I will keep until another rifle comes along...

    A beautiful rifle. It has always seemed to me that Ross sporters have extraordinarily elegant, well-proportioned lines, especially in the shapes of the pistol grip and the trigger guard. Reason enough, I think, to own one.

    1. Handloading is the most practical option for fresh ammunition.
    2. Condition? The rifle has been completely refinished. This may have improved its appearance, but will not have enhanced its collector appeal or value. If the bore is fine, it should be a good shooter.
    Generally speaking, Ross sporters have a serial number applied on the left side of the barrel breech, using rather small stamps.
