    My thoughts exactly.
    However, I've got an Omark/Sportco 44, which I'm building up for F/TR.
    Unless you're interested in a couple of cheap 22's as a straight swap (keeping the Anschutz target rifle),
    will stand by and watch someone get a really nice rifle

    Cheers for the offer , but im good on the 22. side of things.
    yeah changed the buy now to $700 to tempt the fast watchers. I'm sure someone will enjoy a cheap long range build

    $700 is a pretty good price for one of these. I have seen them in 204ruger, 223 and 308. All have shot extremely well. If only I had the room and a permitting financial controller.....

    @ timberwolf good luck on the sale this time around mate. Looks really good and Howa bull barrel .308s ain't that common at that price point. So good buying in my opinion compared to so many skinny stainless barrels out there.

    Sorry but won't be participating this time round ( but wish you all the best luck with the sale) as I just purchased a volquartsen target rifle instead so that'll dry things up for a while

    I've got 2 (vanguards) and they shoot cloverleafing if I do my bit. Way better than a tikka IMO

    Tempted, sold mine to buy an M305. No regrets with the M305, but the Howa was an excellent rifle, only sold because it had had the least use over the previous year.
