H & R Handy rifle expiriences

I own a two barrel set. 30-06 and 243. Had them set up for packing into wilderness areas. Compact and easy to pack. I have a scope mounted to each barrel but am considering putting iron sights on the 30-06.
For as short as they are. They are very hefty with those fat barrels but, they hold steady for the aim. They have good to great accuracy. The break action is comfortable to use but has a loud clicking when your in the quiet of the woods.
Personally, I like them.

I have a Ultra Varmint Rifle in 243 and a Ultra lite slug gun in 12 gauge. I love them both and never had a problem. Is there a reason you want 30-30? The Ultra Hunter rifle in 25-06 (26" barrel) or 308 (22" barrel) would be a better round for hunting the deer you have there.

The preference for the .30-30 is that I want a rimcartridge in a break open rifle. I think the .30-30 with the Leverrevolution cartridges from Hornady is adequat for the game I'll meet in Sweden. It is nearly as strong as the .308 Win.
