    they are good little guns, i had one in a 223 for a long time. send it to HR and have they do a trigger job to it and it makes it better. congrats on the shooter.

    I wonder how much velocity you oick up in a rifle over a revolver in that caliber.

    Has anyone here chronographed them.

    Even if you only pick up a few feet per second, that 500 Handi should be a thumper.

    I think it would be the ideal rifle to hunt bear or boar with dogs. At that range I wouldn't scope it.

    Does anyone make peep sights for Handi Rifles? That would be another option.

    That should be a good hunting rifle for sure. That shorty should take anything with 2 to 8 legs. Nice rifle.

    Well, I have a .50 Beo. The round is very similar, and I can say that with that particular round and a 16" bbl., that 100m is about right, 200m is really pushing it. It falls like a rock at that range.

    But at very close range, it made mincemeat out of an Interceptor vest we tested in the army --we looked at it for the unit as a roadblock tool to disable cars, to blow locks off (we used slugs at the time) and other work. But the Stryker and the way they were used changed that and a remote fired M2 just works better on cars. But that thing WILL stop one fast if you hit the intake. Shatters Nissans like glass.

    I would definitely not want too much magnification, I say that a lot, but definitely not with that baby. A red dot was pretty nice though, and your irons are too.

    Nice rifle. It should beat the .50 Beo for sure in velocity with a barrel like that, the Beo rifle is similar to the .500 handgun in power. The lighter bullets are just smoking, the heavier ones are like sledgehammers. Good thing you load! I couldn't shoot like I want if I didn't.
