Re: single shot vs bolt action
I have both and won't say a thing against either. There isn't a gun manufacturer out there that doesn't have a stinker or three come off the line.
All I know is that the most accurate and least expensive centerfire rifle I own is my .308 H&R model SB2 Handi-Rifle. At 600 yards and over I'd prefer the 7MM Rem Mag or 300 Wby but out to 300 yards Its a 10 shot 1 hole gun even with that short 22" barrel.
The other guns are good for the first 3 shots then start opening up, the H&R just keeps shooting consistently into a golf ball size group. My vote based on my experience with my guns is if I had to do it again I would have saved the money spent on the Wby and bought more H&R's with spare barrels in other calibers.
