I have three in 223, 243, and 25-06. All will shoot an inch at 100 yards. They are a great deep woods deer rifle. Just broke the 25-06 in this year.

Had a NEF ultra in 25-06, and it shot better groups than most bolt action guns. Killed a bunch of deer with it, sold it like a dummy. Also had a handi rifle in 35whelen, head spacing to long and missed my biggest buck ever last year due to that problem. Sent gun back to NEF and they have good customer service also.

Good guns for the money, decent triggers, alot better than the Rossi's at least the ones I have tested.
I have owned a 22-250 and 45-70 in the rifle calibers. The little 20 gauge is a sweet little deer killer, a good friend of mine swears by his with the copper solid sabots. Oh yeah the 45-70 kicks like a borrowed mule!!!!

I've got the 10 gauge for turkey hunting. Surprisingly it isn't as bad as you would think. Don't get me wrong, it's bad enough but, not a killer on the hunter end. I really think I'm gonna get one in the 7mm-08

I've got one in 25-06. Gonna try to get a trigger job done on it. Its alittle heavier than i like. Causes me to have to jerk the trigger instead of pull the trigger. This is the only gun i have that gives me a problem like that. Hope to get it fixed,.. its a real shooter,.. but i'm gonna sell it if i can't get the trigger to suite me.

I have a 45/70, I shoot cowboy 405 gr loads. Low recoil and at 200 yds still puts a hurt on cinder blocks. I have 2 12 ga USH we use for deer hunting. 200 yds with those, using .747 cal 1.25 oz sabot hastings are stupid accurate with hammer of Thor knock down. I cannot say enough good about the Handi's. Check http://www.graybeardoutdoors.com in thier Handi section. Lots of good info from Handi Guru's.
