Welcome and thank you for serving your Country.

The single shots have become very thin here in the US. I had a couple of the Rossi and held them above the H&R. The actual Rossi "Single Shot" did not have interchangeable barrels, that is, the end-user changing them out. So they could have fit issues. Rossi solved that with the Wizard but never fulfilled the barrels they had cataloged (didn't get close to any selection). I owned Single Shots chambered in 7.62x39 and 44 Mag. I had a Wizard with several barrels. I took a 44 Mag barrel and rechambered it to 444 Marlin.

Welcome aboard. In the hands of a marksman...a single shot is, quite often, all that's needed.

Once I have got used to the 44 it was my intention to ream it to full length 444, using 303brit cases as 444 brass is like almost non existent/over $3 a case here.
