Re: Howa Action
Agree, check out the pawn shops and rifle racks. You can get a good howa action rifle in the $300-350 range. The wby vanguards are a good scource. I find them used for just over $300 regularly. Midway has the triggers. They are an excellent action to build on and the tolerances are better than the remington, winchester, ruger, browning, etc actions. I have numerous rifles built on them. My pet 243 AI that regularly groups 1/2"-3/4" groups at 300 yards is built on a Howa.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
