    Custom 7-08 howa barreled action

    Brought this off a fallow member a few months back to tidy up and have a play with have decided not to keep it although itís a very nice rifle i do very little shooting with this type of rifle these days and my creedmoor dose every thing I need

    Its a Heavily modified howa 1500 action the action and bolt have both been modified to take a jewel rem700 trigger which breaks stupid light and crisp as (best trigger if had on a Centerfire rifle but does not have a safety catch
    By the Feel of the bolt close id say itís also been blue printed or atlest had the lugs lapped as there is absolutely no slop


    Fitted with a MAB (im told) 24 inch heavy fluted barrel which looks to be in extremely good condition by eye
    I donít have access to a bore scope but happy for a Prospective buyer to inspect
    When I got the rifle it had a match chamber with a .311 neck that requires neck turning so I sent it down to Gunworks who changed the chamber to sammi Specifications so will now take standard 7-08 brass aswell as factory ammo if youíre that way inclined
    Unknown round count

    When the rifle came to me it was fitted with a single shot thumb hole stock which I will include in the sale

    I had my howa walnut stock from my creedmoor fitted which I canít include as its gotta go back on the creedmoor
    However in order to make it fit with the jewel trigger I had to get a gunsmith to modify a bottom metal
    This modified bottom metal will be supplied

    So you can fit it to any short action howa stock of your choice

    I havenít shot this rifle alot (20 rounds) 10 of them were super old factory ammo
    And 10 were a random handload I randomly picked what I knew would be a save load with the 145gn speer match and loaded 10

    Shot them today and they shot 3x 3shot groups at well under 1moa at 100m
    Off a shitty camping table with more wobble than a 300kg belly dancer
    Each group had 2 touching and a flyer (most likely due to the rest)
    With a bit of load development and a good rest this things going to be an absolute tack driver.... I just need to focus on other things sadly

    Modified bottom metal and tang screws if you want to put it in a howa stock and have a Magazine
    Some brass and a part box of 145gn hpbt match projectiles
