    My understanding is that Ruger is going to release them in different caibers for all models each year not repeating.

    Ummm, ok, so July 2016 then to March 2017... For all intents and likelihood, the #1 is kaput. That .243 or .25-06 #1V...they did those as standard cataloged models for years. Easily found still.

    My dream Ruger#1 is in 416 Rigby...

    Every time (which has only been twice) I come across one ......the funds aren't there.

    One of these days .

    Ruger will keep making Number Ones so long as Lipsey's keeps ordering them. Lipsey's is the exclusive distributor for the Number One.

    They are who makes the decisions on which calibers are produced each year. They have determined that the primary market is collectors. Thus they will offer several different calibers each year with quite a long period before they repeat a caliber.

    Not necessarily. When both parties say the model is discontinued, that kinda says, it's done. ;) Lipsey's doesn't control production and more than a local car dealer dictates what Ford makes. While Lipsey's can suggest particular chamberings, Ruger still has the final say in what is approved. It's more than just "hey, make us _____" and Ruger does it.

    Chambering not caliber. ;)
