BENELLI R1 BIG GAME RIFLE   .30-06 Springfield Benellis R1 big game rifle recently got bigger. The R1 is now available in .338 Winchester Magnum, considered one of the most respected North American big game cartridges thats suitable for hunting large game like brown bear, moose and elk and Africas largest plains game. The Benelli R1 with ComforTech is currently available in .30-06, .300 Win. Mag., and the latest additionthe .338 Winchester Magnum. No rifle in the world that allows you to get back on target faster than the R1 with ComforTech just the ticket for hunting game anywhere in the world. Pairing R1s ComforTech recoil dampening stock with Benellis ultra-reliable A.R.G.O. piston-driven system really takes the sting out of recoil. Imagine a .300 Winchester Magnum that feels like youre shooting a light .270 and youll understand what this hunting rifle from Benelli is all about. To put it more graphically, other high-powered hunting rifles kick about twice as hard. R1 A.R.G.O. System The reliability of the R1s Auto Regulating Gas Operated (A.R.G.O.) system has been proven in the M1014 military shotgun and has been adapted for centerfire rifle cartridges with a three-lugged rotary bolt. The rifles gas cylinder is positioned just in front of the chamber allowing for short operating rods and reduced recoiling mass.
