    After a 308

    Gday Iím on the hunt for a 308 bolt action leaning towards tikka but keen on howas also thought Iíd ask here before buying new. Iím currently saving for said rifle if I canít find a second hand one Iíll laybuy a new one. But if anyone has one up for sale I would be keen to hear from them and can put a deposit down if your will to hold on to it until I have enough saved (not the best at saving!!)
    Cheers

    I have a Howa m1500 in 7mm-08 and a Tikka in .308. I've been using the Howa for a few months and it's a nice gun. Mine seems to like the cheap ppu rounds which I can get some good grouping with when I'm shootin' straight. The only thing I don't like about the Howa is the weight. It's a heavy rifle and I have a large suppressor and a bipod so shooting off the shoulder becomes hard.

    I've not really used the Tikka yet as I've sent it away to have the Barrell shortened and suppressor bush fitted.

    I'd recommend the Howa if you can deal with the little bit of extra weight.

    Hi Cody.
    I have a Rem Model 7 in .308 I would be willing to let you pay off in smaller increments if need be.
    Iíll have a look at how many rounds I have for it and how much have been put through.
    Likely to ask around $1000 and Iíll throw in some ammunition and empty brass

    Yeah it has a vx1 but I put a little nick in the glass climbing through some bush. It is threaded for suppressor 1/2 x 20. I was just gonna throw in scope for free because it still works itís just a little bit of a pain.

    Sorry man I had a chat with the missus and I wouldn’t be able to buy a new rifle off the bat so I’ll need to hang on to the model 7 for now until some cash frees up.
