In 2008, Ruger collaborated with noted outdoor writer Craig Boddington and Lipsey's on a special series of Number 1 rifles.  The result was a limited edition five gun set that would share the same features and be chambered in different calibers optimized for Craig's favorite African species to hunt.  All of the rifles in the set feature a matte blue finish, circassion walnut stock, Warne quick detach rings, and special express sights made specifically for each caliber by Ruger.  There were 250 of each model made with each caliber having the same serial # with a different pre-fix.

The 7X57mm Leopard was the fourth installment of the Boddington Series.  The serial number run for this model is CB4-00001 through CB4-00250.
