With the advent of the Ruger American bolt-action being sold for $260 +/-, the Handi-Rifle is a less attractive alternative.

I've had a Handi-Rifle in .243 Win and though it shoots 2-3" groups at 100 yards, ejection of handloaded shells has been problematic. They also tend to string shots vertically, depending on how the forend is held/rested. Although the transfer bar is a pretty safe mechanism, cocking the rifle to shoot is slower than flipping a safety.

The Ruger American often shoots under an inch at 100 yards and is proving to be a very good rifle. I don't own one, but considered one before buying a Tikka T3.
