Re: Has anyone bought a Howa in the last year?

My longest with that rig was a bobcat at just over 300 yards and a coyote at 343 if I recall correctly. Both were two seasons ago. I center punched a raccoonin a tree at 220 two weeks ago though so she stil works.

    I purchased a Howa 65x55 new in 2012 thats after you listing
    After a bit of the usual trial and tribulations
    Three 120gr fb sierras touching at 100 yds
    Three 120gr fb sierras into 3/8 inch at 200yds
    Near perfect conditions. with a cuppa tea and sandwhich between shots
    Had a simlar result with 130 vld hunting projectiles
    Have used Anshutz rifles mostly in the past for obvious reason
    I have to say that Im very pleased with the results from my Howa

    Hi Big fella, the answer to your question is YES & am very happy. I purchased the HB 243,SS with the black hoag stock. My reasons for this is quite simply this is a working gun, not a mantlepiece special. the gun is extremely accurate over long distance & no silly problems like jamming or not ejecting.There are times when hunting conditions aren,t great, dust being the worst but still no problem. I have the swarwovski 6 by 25-50 Z5 fitted to create a reliable accurate weapon. I was so pleased I just purchased the 22_250 in the same specs for my nephew.
