Re: Howa Rifles

Montoure county rifles(Kevin Cram) 300 win mag, barrel paint by me, extended mag box by Kirby Allen, action is a HOWA and its awsome I could not be more pleased. I like the HOWA more than any other rifle I have. I has alot going for it intagrated recoil lug fluted bolt, great trigger and lots of aftermarket support. I shoot VLDs from the mag but that can only be done with the mag box conversion.

Re: Howa Rifles

Howas are great rifles, I have no problems working on them. They have a shorter mag then what is ideal for a Rum or Edge though.

I have the same Roedale brake on my .308. When I squeeze the trigger the gun literally doesn't move. How is it on that big magnum
