need ideas to build up my howa 1500 22-250.

I have a factory howa 1500 with a bull barrel. It shoots good since i got the barrel broke in. I want to build a great target rifle. I just need some ideas to do. Ive been out of shooting for about 6 years or so. Alot has changed..

What kind of target shooting are you looking to do? Paper at 100 or rocks at 1000? A little more info on what your goals are and I am sure you will get some responses. Do you want to stay with the current caliber? By the way, this probably isn't the best place on this forum to be looking for this info. Try the Rifle, Bullets, Barrels and Ballistic area.

Re: need ideas to build up my howa 1500 22-250.

well id post a pick of my build but i dont happen to have one on the computer.
but here is the list of ingredients

Howa 1500 heavy in 6.5 creedmor
MDT H3 chassis
MDT V3 rear adjustable stock
Timney Trigger (1.5-2lb)
2 different length Harris Bi-pods(depending on terrain)
Vortex PST 4-16 scope and rings
Hornady Brass, 140 Accubond with 8208XBR powder
This rifle is not a run and gun platform as it comes in at 12.5 lbs but is a dream to shoot
Im into it for around $2300.
at 100 yards i can do 5 rounds in one jagged hole, im new to the long range mathematics so im hit or miss past 500.

Id definitely check out MDT
