single shot rifles..

Postby fatrat41 » Sun Sep 23, 2007 11:06 am

OK, I did not pay attention when I should have. Somebody please educate me about the law regarding single shot rifles during muzzleloader season in Ms.
Also any suggestions as far as rifles to use...price range...dependability?

Seem like lots of folks bought up the H&R's...Buffalo Classic and Handi-Rifle for example.
Far as the regs...only one I can recall right off is "exposed hammer".

First the Thompson Center Encore in centerfire is not legal
The gun has to be a pre 1900 design , single shot with exposed hammer of at least 38 caliber.
The cheapest are the NEF Handi rifles and the most popular is the 45 70 with the 444 marlin, 38 55 winchester, 44 mag, 500 S&W.
I bought a NEF in 45 70 last year and have shot it over 200 times with the only mishaps being a scope that lost zero and a tender shoulder from heavy loaded reloads :W: I did spend 40 bucks to get the trigger pull like I like it and 30 bucks on a Limbsaver recoil pad.
