saw a SHOT magazine today. Shows the 'nice' version of the H&R with walnut stock and checkering [Buffalo Special?]only with a shorter barrel and in .45 Long Colt. Looked neat in the pictures.

I've got a Winchester 94 Trapper in 45 LC. It's a blast to shoot and there's very little recoil. The H&R would be an inexpensive way to get a rifle in this caliber and it would most likely be as much fun as the 94. MI VHNTR

H&R has had barrels in .357Mag, 44Mag and 500 S&W for the Handi-Rifle. A 45Colt seems logical.

I have a 500 S&W barrel on order to switch out with my 223.

I had one called a NEF suvivor

It was a 45lc and and 410 if you installed the a choke. It had a rifeled barrel and it was the reason that I got into reloading. I reloaded and tried everything and could never make it accurate. I did kill a few animals with it and it worked well. But if it has the 410 option I would pass it up if you want to shoot past 25 yards. The shotgun is good to about 20 yards.

Allan, as you already know, the only way to add muzzle energy to subsonic ammo is to increase bullet weight. I think they may have created the perfect suppressor host for serious vermin control. Any info on twist rates? I have a .45LC Ruger Bisley but have never paid attention to availability of reloading components, I shoot factory ammo.
