H&R 1871® Buffalo Classic Rifle
Best for the money
I 'm a 64 year old disabled male in a wheel chair. I was afraid to shoot the rifle after all that I had heard about the kick.The first coulple of shots I pulled and was way off. I then realized this isn't so bad. I sighted the rifle in for 1" high at 90yds( all the range we had), I have had a chance to shoot at 6 deer from 35yds out to about 130 yds. and have dropped everyone of them in their tracks. I could not be happier, The other day I shot 3rds at a target at 50yds just to check the rifle. I one holed one shot and cut the holes on the 3rd, I could not be happier. I shoot Leverrevolution325 gr FTX

outstanding single shot
i have owned the h/r buffalo classic for several years and use hornady 250 to 325gr ammo in it. at 100 to 150 yards i can stay under three inches with no problem. a large portion of the folks i know use this type of firearm during primitive weapon season here in the south and i have never heard of one shooting twelve to eighteen inch spreads at 100 yards. the person who has a h/r that does this should bring it back. if this weapon happens to hurt when shooting than slip on a rubber pad and happy shooting.

i purchased this on a whim and it is really my favorite rifle.i reload this using 405 grain bullets and almost reach 458 win mag velocity.if you are recoil sensative do not buy this gun,it has a metal butt plate and is not for the week of heart if you reload.shooting factory rounds and it a snap.this gun will take any game in north america and even possible afracia.old semperfi

This gun was beautiful. I've heard good things about H&R so I decided to try this one out. It took me 3 boxes of ammo to find out this thing could not shoot for me. I even took it to someone that sights guns in and they couldnt do anything with it. Mine was shooting 12-18 inch groups at 100 yrds. Maybe I just got a bad rifle. I stinks I had to pay that much. Just be warned.
