    Howa 7mm-08 looking to swap for .223 or lever action

    Hi all. I've got a Howa 1500 7mm08 sat in the safe doing nothing since I purchased a lightweight .308

    I've had it a bit less than a year, used it on countless goats and a couple of pics. Comes with some Leopold rings and a hushpower 370 suppressor. I've also got 60 or more 140gr ppu rounds which it seems to love along with a few federal 150gr and maybe 10 - 20 hand loaded subsonics for super quiet kills. I've also got a ton of 7mm08 brass for reloading along with a few lead subsonic cast projectiles and the die set for reloading.

    I do have a Zeiss Terra 3x9 which I could swap as well depending on what may be offered.

    I'm looking to exchange it for a lever action, .223, some kind of semi-auto (A cat only) or even a shotgun.

    I'll post up a couple of pics this evening. It's got a small scratch on the barrel and it's missing the thread cover from the end of the barrel but otherwise it's a great gun.

    Located in Wellington.

    Many thanks

    No, I should edit the original post. I'm looking to sell now as I managed to pick up a lever gun (or two)

    I'm looking for $850 for:

    the Howa m1500 7mm-08
    hushpower 370 suppressor
    set of decent rings
    reloading die set
    large selection of brass for reloading
    about 100 rounds, mainly PPU, 5 Hornady SST, some Federal and a few subsonics

    This gun shoots the cheap PPU rounds really well.

    The scope in the pictures is not for sale.
