    I originally bought this rifle for my boys to use but they have now decided that they like my 6.5 Swede and 308 instead. The rifle is in very good condition with a few small rust spots on the barrel. The bore is perfect. They were using 139 gr Remington Core Lockts which shoot very well. Overall this is a good little rifle but with 3 other rifles in the safe itís no longer getting any use.

    For pick ups Iím located in Wellington.

    Cheers

    For anyone curious but unsure, i had a howa for a long time. Loved it. Really accurate and angreat price. Recommended. I replaced my 708 howa with a 308 lightweight eventually but i enjoyed my howa a lot.

    They shoot very well
    Im a big howa convert
    Had about 5 of them over the years and currently own 2
    Then there’s another 3-4 that mates own that I handload for

    They are Guaranteed by howa to shoot 1 inch at 100m
    Ive never met one that doesn’t do better than that
    90% of them do 1/2 inch or better

    I have no trouble recommending people to buy a Howa irrelevant of their experience etc.

    They just shoot bloody well.

    Someone's going to grab a ripper here

    I hope so. It shoots MOA with factory core locts which aren’t the most best performing projectiles out there. This rifle has shot heaps of goats and quite a few deer very dead. I hope someone picks it up as it is such a great little rifle.

    If it was .223 or .22-250 it'd be in my safe already.

    Bloody good deal!

    It's a good deal for someone!
    I've got the weatherby vanguard, a howa but Americanised. Can't fault the accuracy of it.
    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.
