.225 conversion.
Could a H&R handi rifle single shot in .223 be bored out to .225 Winchester? Would anything have to be altered as we would be going from a rimless to a semi rimmed cartridge?It seems to me the rimmed case of the .225 would solve the occasional extraction problem, and besides, the .225 is an excellent cartridge.

It may be more cost effective to have H&R make you a barrel chambered in 225 (they still do this?) then sell your 223 barrel
the 225 win is a GREAT choice of calibers!
