    Howa 223 mini action 1:8, DPT mk2, Swaro Z3 3-10x42, Timney trigger

    Brand new Howa Mini Action.

    Fired 30 rounds.

    Shoots 75gr into 1/2 MOA, 62gr frontier so into 1 MOA.

    10 shot mag.

    Timney trigger set at 1.5lbs

    22Ē bbl, threaded 1/2x20, fitted with a 6mm DPT MK2 can.

    Swaro Z3 3-10x42 in Talley rings.

    Brand new a week ago, done one trip to the range. Comes with a box and a half of Hornady black 75gr.

    I have changed my mind about what Iím after calibre wise.

    After $2200 posted.

    Nice! I've had enough of my .223 as well, 22-204 sounds like a bloody fun caliber, push those heavier pills, fast.

    me either but if you find one let me know

    the howa mini 223 I bought is 1-8 and its stamped on the barrel, the one beside it in the rack wasnt and the person behind the counter couldnt tell me what the twist rate of the earlier model
    so if you want a 1-8 make sure you check its stamped on the barrel

    I think the earlier mini actions were 1-9
