How does it shoot?
So I’ve been busy moving from Az to Ok, and haven’t had a lot of time to mess around with it. I did take it out the other day and put 10 rounds through it. This was at 100 yards, and an eyeball bore sighting. It was also off a rickety bench of my friends. I think once I put it on a good bag from the prone position, it’ll tighten up even more.

An old thread but it turned out right on the end.
I own a Howa and a Weatherby Vanguard, well my wife's Why Girls Hunt 2 is a factory .243 with an B&C stock with the saver removed.
my Smith in Australia has Howa or his culling contract and says they shot quite well, after all the original design itself was near to an older Sako action if what I was told is correct. That myth has been challenged.
Howa are considered budget in Australia but that makes them popular as tools for a work rifle.
put simply they work, just fine too.

WE canbuy a new one from a big store cheaper than a good aftermarket barrel job.

But , it's an heirloom and the kids love it and your memories of previous hunts and the nostalgia go with it. Sentimental reasons, that's all the reason you need.

I hope to do a good write up in the future, with a good trip to the range. But in the meantime, I’d really like to give credit to 1cpalmer. He was incredible to deal with. He was honest, great at communicating, his prices fair, and he really can build a rifle. I hope to save a bit of money, and let him build me something truly nice.
