Your welcome - most people forget to give the lugs a little bit of grease, makes them work so much better.
I usually apply a small smear each time I go shooting or at least each time I feel it starting to bind slightly, afterall I don't want to gouge the lugs.
So how do you find the Howa's? I've got one in 22.250 HB and its a bloody rippa, very very accurate with handloads (many .3" groups @ 100m and a few .6" at 200m.
