Re: Homesteader Rifle by Henry

I have the Ruger version/ PC9 that's quite accurate and like above, with the right ammunition, it's a pretty potent little carbine.
I certainly wouldn't want to be on the other side of it.

Yes, microgroove and yes I've tried just about everything. I've had this thing for a couple of decades. Paid $250 for it at a show. So far, the only bullets that have worked fairly well are the Speer 250 gr. jacketed flay point. Those are pretty pricy and not always easy to find.
