Looked in the archives and really did'nt get my question answered. I already own a handi 243 and absolutely love it. People ask me why I want a single shot, I shoot better knowing that I only have one shot. My question is I am looking to get a barrel for big game hunting and was wondering should I go with the 280 or 7-08? I reload my own shells or I could shoot factory. Thanks for the help, awesome guns and awesome web site!! Keep up the good work. ???
