    Tack driving 270 FS

    This is a Howa stainless .270
    I bought it second hand to convert to .284, but it looked so good and shot so well I kept it as a .270 and made some mods.

    New Boyd's stock, Gunworks flute and cut to 20", and 1:14 thread. Purchased one of their new short 4" forward suppressors at the same time.



    It shoots 140 grn Nosler Ballistic Tips like this:




    ...and 130 corlokts like this:



    The original plastic stock comes with it.

    So, price. $1050 for rifle, both stocks and the suppressor and about 50 pieces of new and once fired Norma brass. I think that's fair.

    Its pretty faultless, although the Howa triggers aren't match grade but I've got it as good as I can. You can get Timneys for them though.

    I'm selling it because I have too many rifles for my stage of life (old-ish) so someone might as well be enjoying some of them. Don't worry though, there will still be a few here left for me.

    Seems that I need to sweeten the deal even more.

    Plus + 80 Nosler ballistic tips (130 &140 grn) Plus + .270 reloading dies

    Note: Its a Vanguard, not a Howa as I said when I listed it.
