NEF Handi Rifle

Hello. I just bought a NEF Handi Rifle in 30-06. It is as new, "22 inch barrel. I suspect someone bought it, took it out and fired it full house with no muffs and brought it back. I plan to put a scope on (no choice anyway - no sights!) and use it for fun target shooting. I will try different cast loads, and as well I'll try out my auxiliary cartridge in .30 M1 with my trusty 93 gr Lee WW loads. Has anybody had any experience with these little rifles. I realize that they aren't in the Ruger class, so I don't need to be told that. I see I need med/high mounts to clear the hammer. Thanks.

A fellow shooter at my local gun club has one in a 22 Hornet. It will shoot a good deal better than most factory rifles of any kind that I have seen, once a load was found. Five shots easily covered by a dime with no tweaking of the firearm.
I've not done it with the firearm in question, but I can tell you it works wonderfully with my Savage Scout rifle. The logistics of it are very similar and it works very well. The Scout comes with a ghost ring peep and a forward Weaver style scope base, and is equally comfortable to fire in either mode. I would try to keep your scope rings as low as possble.
