H&r 1871 .223
 
I've got my eye on a single shot .223 that I was thinking about buying for a buddy. Any thoughts?

have the same rifle to get the most out of it use 45 to 55 grain bullets. mine has taking a liking to the 45 grain winny white box. you can find alot more info on these rifles at grey beard outdoors. the handi has a huge following over there

Thanks. I have a model 11 savage, .22-250 that i hunt yote's with, and my buddy likes to go with me, so i was wondering if it was a good pick. He doesnt have anything, and i figured id let him shoot that. I wanted something that wasnt extremely expensive, but could still do a good job. What kind of groups does yours shoot?

mine shoots 1 at a hundred if i do my part. my friend of 40 years who owned the rifle before me was a little closer with his handloads
