the accuaracy is great at 100 yards with light wind, but I have not shot them over 100 yards or in wind yet.
You are right, the Howa's prefer light bullets. I have taken 50 grain vmax bullets to 600 yards in still air with the local gun club. If legacy international would produce a 9 twist 22-250, that would a really fun gun.
