    hello
    I'm looking at these two rifles.

    Which is better rifle?
    In precision, action, etc.

    I like how the howa has a 26" barrel but the stocks I think is bad

    have if you can help me decide

    I have a Bergara HMR and it is a sweet gun. The action is nice and smooth. It has a nice stock. It does bend a little on the fore end but I don't think it affects the accuracy at all. The Bergara factory trigger is actually pretty good also. I would say it comes close to the Timney on my rem 700. As far as a factory rifle goes it is definitely great bang for your buck. Plus it shoots lights out. I can't really comment on the Howa since I have never held one.
