My H&R was a great rifle, but it was not as balanced as I would like, and there is always the drawback of it being a single-shot.

Primitive weapons used to limit you to muzzle loader but we can use single shots designed before (i dont remember the year) and over 38 cal.

anyway, i already ordered it. 220 otd :cool:

150 bucks how i priced it out, you can buy it in parts. :dunno:

yah, i'm getting some more expensive parts. and then having a smith do it for me :hsd:
he's adding HK style iron sights and a few other things i cant do.
if i just wanted a basic conversion i'd have done it myself already.
this will be like a tromix job, but better :h5:
also includes a custom duracoat job :cool:

All the convenience of modern cartridge technology and the best of the hunting season. Awesome.

I personally think handi-rifles are only useful for making so-so tomato stakes, so I suppose I'd go with the Saiga.

If you were wanting to get serious about hunting, I'd look into getting a damn good smoke-pole, or maybe a dedicated slug gun. OH has some bullshit about hunting only with shotguns, and I've seen some guys have killer setups in both.

My uncles go to OH every year during slug, muzzleloader, and bow season. These came from around Cadiz area 3 or 4 years ago

I have a .308 for regular weapons season (as well as an 870 I have a 28" barrel for) so I needed something for primitive. It was between a Handi-rifle and a muzzle loader. No thanks on the latter.

Oh... well then fuck, I'd go with the smoke pole (savage makes one that takes smokeless powder which looked fun to me :)), some pointy ass TSX's, and a Leupy with turrets.

It'd be fun doping a muzzle loader out to like 3-400yds. You would probably hear the *smack* upon impact.

Energy loss would probably be too great for hunting at 300-400yds

Single shots - especially cheaper ones like H&R and Rossis have a problem keeping zero. We've had a lot of people complain about it.

Disregard the two sight-in shots on the right. That's a 100 yard 3-shot group with handloads out of my old NEF Survivor .308. It would do that all day long, and I never had a wandering zero problem with mine. Unless someone wants to be able to buy super expensive caliber conversion barrels for an Encore, I see no reason to not buy an NEF/H&R.

I'm just posting what i have seen from my personal experience. I've had several people complaining about those guns not holding zero since deer season began. Take it however you want.
