    I too like single shot rifles. but in my hunting grounds I would modify mine. I would get a .357 MAG. I would send it off to Mike Bellm and have it chambered in the .357 Maximum cartridge. I can get .35 Remington (or close to it) power with a 180 grain bullet.

    The 30-30 would be a great rifle to play with, using cast bullets. As it does not have to function through a repeating action you could use any cast bullet you wanted. Either very short ones or very long ones. J bullets would not have to be blunt either. For someone with 30-30 equipment it would be a fun little rifle to shoot similar to the 357 as far as recoil and load development.

    Hoping to see a .30 WCF soon.
    I looked at one yesterday and the hammer sticks out like a sore thumb. Surely they can do better, unless it's a nostalgic thing. I don't know what hammers looked like way back when.
    Big, flatnose bullets eliminate tracking.

    I bought a .357 a few months back. Have not cleaned or shot. What has been stated about the trigger/hammer is accurate!
    Already have a few handi's so compared to them: the wood is way nicer on the Henry, the Henry price is reasonable, the metal on the Henry is finished better,it has a nice recoil pad (not needed on .357), the Henry rear sight will need to come off to mount the 1 piece steel scope base that I have, the Henry hammer cocking requires a bit of force(way more than handi), the trigger pull is heavy on the Henry. Despite the trigger/hammer issue -- I am satisfied with what I received for what I paid. I was also satisfied with what I got for what i paid with the handi's, however since handi's are no longer produced the prices for them in .357 is quite high, unless you are purchasing from someone that is not aware of the going price.
    There is a fix for the trigger /hammer, which can readily be found by searching.

    I’d love one. Unfortunately they’re not imported into Australia.
