Re: new guy from fort leonard wood, MO.
Cant help ya on the stevens or howa, but I had a Winchester M-70, 223wssm that shot under 1moa with factory ammo and a pencil thin barrel. Kinda surprised me actualy, but it worked great while I had it. Fouled fast tho, had to clean it constantly, never more than 10 rounds and required thurough scrubbing. Good luck with your choice
