    Both my Rifles are Howa 1500's. Trust me when I tell you that you will not find a factory rifle at the same price point that shoots as good. The new ones even have two stage triggers in them now and the .308 has a 10 twist barrel. If you want to out shoot a Howa you better have deep pockets.

    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.

    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
