Hello friends ,
My son is itching for his first rifle and has asked me to post and enquire what you experienced riflemen think of the Howa brand of rifles.
I have grown up shooting with original Win pre '64 rifles so he has actually been shooting a bunch with these for several years now. As you can imagine a 17 year old to be - he wants his own rifle !!
I have an original 22 Hornet in pre ' 64 , 220 Swift in pre '64 with a Shilen barrel , 243 pre '64 just gone away for its 3rd barrel , 7 Rem mag on pre '64 action with Shilen barrel , 300 H&H on pre '64 action with Musgrave barrel.
As you will notice I shot the 243 a bunch and so has Simon.
I suggested he look at a 308 as I have not had one of these and I have read many impressive reports on this cartridge.
So what do you think of the Howa. We are accuracy freaks and do a lot of long range culling in mountain terrain and on the plains. Will this make of rifle please us ?
