The first H&R single shot I ever paid any attention to at a gun shop, was the laminated stock, heavy barrel Ultra in 223. Finish was very good and so was the trigger.
Years later I bought an NEF heavy barrel in 223, that Dick's had on special: Scope (Trashco 6x18x42), bases/rings, hard case and sling. Instead of the lam. stocks and polished deep blue/black finish of the H&R Ultra, this one has a matte black metal finish and hardwood handles.
IIRC, it was priced around $240, several years ago? Trigger isn't quite as nifty as on the Ultra, but pretty good. It is also very accurate. Been tempted to sell it several times, but haven't.
Our club is again having winter 3 position sporter rifle shoots this year. It's what I used the last time we had them and it did very well. Although the prone rapid fire phase can get a tad exciting, with a break open single shot.
And yes, I still have all my fingers and thumbs.
