Re: Howa 1500 Reviews
I am impressed with the accuracy of my Howa 1500 .270. The one thing I don't care for is the weight. It gets heavy carrying it elk hunting up in the mountains, and if I can't figure out how to lighten it up, I may have to eventually trade it off. I have one with the camo stock and camo barrel. The barrel has a coating that makes it weather impervious. I can attest to that as I just finished up elk season and was out in wet snow for several days. At the end of the day, I dried off my daughter's Tikka T3, and was shocked to discover surface rust (13 hrs out in the field in the snow). I had to work hard to clean up her gun, which I love because of it's light weight and accuracy. My Howa was just fine. I dried it off and wiped it with gun oil just to let the old gal know I cared... It is really accurate, but just a little too heavy for this 52 yr old gal!
