    Howa HCR 6.5 Creedmoor

    Up for sale is my awesome long range 6.5 Creedmoor chassis rifle, the Howa HCR in Accurate Mag chassis. This is every bit as capable as the Ruger Precision or Tikka Tac A1 (I have shot all 3 in 6.5). Well used in PRS competitions in Canterbury region, have made consistent hits at up to 1km. Regularly shot sub half MOA groups at the handloaders range with handloads.

    I estimate its shot around 700 rounds, barrel is still in good shiny condition, regularly cleaned after each use. Some of the bolts on rings/stock have surface rust however none is in the action or bolt. There is some dark discolouration on barrel where light surface rust was polished off.

    $3500

    Everything included.

    Specs:
    - 24" barrel
    - Cerakoted barrel, action and bolt
    - Accurate mag chassis w/ m-lok frontend
    - Luth AR MBA-3
    - Howa HACT 2 stage trigger

    Upgrades & Accessories:
    - Vortex Viper PST (gen 1) 6-24, mrad/mrad EBR-2c reticle
    - EGW 20MOA rail bedded to action
    - Weaver tactical rings lapped
    - MDT folding stock adaptor added - this increases the minimum length of pull about 2", but I'm tall so it doesn't bother me. As well as making it shorter for storage/travel, it means you can get a cleaning rod through without lowering the cheek rest.
    - BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 grip installed - this is much more upright and a vast improvement over the stock Ergo grip, also has storage built in
    - Grovtec QD sling basses fitted, 2 at the rear screwed into the stock and one mounted upfront on the m-lok
    - Magpul m-lok Manfrotto tripod adaptor plate fitted
    - knock off atlas bipod w/ normal and spiked feet, mounted on m-lok rail section
    - Viking tactical v-tac sling
    - Crosstac lightweight rear squeeze bag
    - Ridgeline dual purpose dragbag/shooting mat

    Will throw in some used Lapua brass if you want and 700 SR match primers if picked up.

    I appreciate & respect differing views, I greatly value the benefit of good conversation around differing opinions & respect points of view contrary to my own, however when youíre a belligerent self-opinionated obnoxious troll like individual, +1 to the ignore list
