    Howa 1500 7mm08, suppressor, rings, ammo and some reloading gear

    Less than 1 year old Howa. See pictures. Note that scope and sling are not included. 80+ rounds of PPU, some Winchester and a few Hornady SST plus a few hand loaded subsonics. Comes with die set and a ton of used brass.

    Leopold rings
    Hushpower 370 suppressor
    Howa 1500 7mm08

    Thread cover is missing and barrel has a scratch but otherwise an excellent rifle.

    Selling as I purchased a lighter rifle in
    .308 so it's taking up space now.

    $800 or willing to exchange for a good 75L pack and $500.

    Located in Wellington. Would rather not send by courier

    Out of curiosity, What do your hand load subs perform like?
    What weight pill? What Velocity? What is POA vs POI at 100-200yards?
    Thanks in advance!

    I'm a complete novice at this. the hand loading was under instruction from an experienced friend. projectile is a 139gr lead cast. seems good out to 100yrds or so. I've headshot a baby goat at that range with the. pretty accurate with 3 shot group all touching.

    We have the NI chrono at the moment as we are going to clock them and develop some .308 loads, potentially seeing how fast we can push the lead casts.

    No. its the standard hogue stock. they are a bit squishy but as everyone will attest, the Howa is a good gun for the price. Just a little heavy.

    I'd prefer not to but I will courier. I'll need to look in to the process first as I'm unsure of how it works.

    I'm sure your local hunting shop will do it for you. Hunting and fishing for example

    Fastways will do it too apparently but I will look at the hunting and fishing options as the chaps in the local store are quite helpful

    This is still for sale. Not willing to courier due to recent events.
