There are many new bolt action guns that will fill your requirements. Ruger, Marlin, Savage. Or used bolt action guns. I had very poor luck with the H&R I had but some do shoot OK. The bolt guns would be much easier to sell or trade if you wanted something different later.

CVA makes some very good shooting single shot rifles,they have Bergara barrels that have a decent reputation for accuracy.Plus they have 14 different calibers that can be swapped on the receiver,if you want to shoot a different caliber or want to shoot Rimfire/Centerfire/Muzzle Loader rounds.
Thompson C/T is probably the very best single shot rifle,but they cost a lot more than the H & R,or the CVA.

I have noticed that any H&R handi rifle or Rossi can't keep up w/ a bolt gun. A Stevens 200 is a much better option. A buddy has a H&R in .308 and has the 20ga barrel also. With the .308 it is a 50 yard rifle for hunting at best.

Well, haven't tryed them all but i think thats a little too general -
I've had two H&R's in 45/70 that could drive nails at 100yds ( with good glass)- Had one in i think it was 243 that was best used as a club
I agree that they's a lot of good bolt guns out there "cheap" enuff to have plenty of cash left to buy good glass for a total of $500-

Try a Savage model 10 or Stevens 200 bolt action in .223, if target shooting out to 300 yds is what you are looking for. The rifles are affoardable, offer excellent accuracy, and there are enough commercial .223 loads out there, as well as reloading components, that you shouldn't get bored with seeing what you can wring out of the rifle. Nikon offers scopes that give very good performance for the cost. Leupold bought Redfield and offer good scopes for the money as well. The Redfield line is made with some foreign parts to keep cost down, but are still assembled in Oregon and enjoy Leupold customer service and warranty backing.

Lets ask a question. Would you buy an H&R or Rossi if the experience you had w/ the .243 was the norm?? Is it worth the gamble??

If it were me I would figure out what caliber u want then rifle shop. Out of the Hornady 2012 catalog rifle ballistics .223 55grain hp steel match . This shows a 200 yard zero being 1.5 high at 100 yards and -7.5 at 300. A .243 75 grain hp custom round 200 yard zero being 1.2 high at 100 yards an -6.1 at 300.
