The NEC Handi rifle is the budget shooter/hunter’s dream gun. It’s cheap, simple and versatile. Since it has interchangeable barrels, it has been mated with some really wild custom barrels….like the .577 Nitro Express.
Check out this African Buffalo hunt featuring the H&R/NEC Handi Rifle with a custom .577 Nitro barrel. The load is a hard cast lead bullet at about 1800 fps. One shot puts the Buffalo down in short order.
