IF it's still there I know where a handi-rifle is for sale for $200 chambered for .218 bee. This rifle has a very heavy tapered barrel. Should I buy Or should I let it slide?

I had a topper 22 hornet rechambered to 218 BEE.  The Bee will deliver several hundred fps more velocity over the hornet.  It's really a great cartridge. Easy to reload for too.  Mine loved IMR-4227 and the 45gn Hornady HP Bee bullet.

Is this a trick question?....<><.... :-D

(By the looks of his avatar, I think Rick who posted just before me may be a bit prejudiced in his opinion regarding the .218Bee  :-D  :-D  :-D )

 I guess I owe you fellas an explanation :cry:  After my mororcycle accident money got a bit tight so I ended up selling my handi. But now that I'm back to work I've got the itch again.
