WCChapin | Isn’t that Handi? – Sighting in an H&R Handi-Rifle in 270 Winchester

Initial shots and scope adjustments on pleasant April afternoon at the range. The first time out with a recently purchased H&R Handi-Rifle chambered in 270 Winchester.

I have other 270 Winchester rifles – one of them is a family heirloom that will someday be handed off to my Son, and another one is the first rifle that I carried hunting with my Father, and the first rifle that I reloaded for. I still have the remaining rounds from that first batch of handloads nearly 40 years later!

This Handi-Rifle was purchased for as an inexpensive range gun to start using a large assortment of commercial and handloaded ammunition that has been acquired over time from friends and family.

Two different loadings were fired in the rifle during this range time, the first of which is covered in this video. Load data (as written) from load notes:

12 Rounds .270 Win.
110 Gr Spire HP
50 Gr. 4895
3100 FPS?
Hornady Book #2
