I bought a Handi Rifle in .223 heavy barrel about 15 years ago for a prairie dog shoot in South Dakota. With my reloads, it would shoot less then 1 MOA. I put it away and never really gave it much thought until Spring of 2012. I decided I would try to squeeze as much accuracy as possible out of it. Found a load that printed 0.44 inch group at 100 yards. Not sure if I can do better then that, but it sure is fun trying. As for the trigger, it starts off horrible, but it does get better with time. Right now mine is very crisp with just over 5 pound pull. It will lift my 5 pound trigger weights if I do it carefully and slowly. The trigger would be ideal for a hunting rifle. Would I buy another? Maybe.
