    Howa 7mm08 bolt

    Have been given a howa 7mm08 rifle without a bolt. Im assuming a .308 bolt would work as well? Thought id try here in the off chance someone has one that may suit. Otherwise if anyone could point me in a direction of possibly securing one?
    Any info is appreciated.

    Cheers

    Yeah any short action ďstandard bolt face 22-250,243,7-08,308 6.5creedmoor etc will work
    However you canít just put it in and shoot
    Needs to be checked by a gunsmith 1st
    With factory tolerances every one is slightly Different so may need some adjustment for head space etc
