    I’m hoping to get some feedback on the Hs 2000 series of rifles. Considering there price I’m wondering if you think there worth it? Would building off an hs be a good idea or going custom better? How do there actions compare to a remington then to a custom? Are they basically a blueprinted 700 with a Winchester safety?

    The reason I’m asking is I’m doing a favor for a couple buddies that need help with selling 5 brand new Hs-precision. He purchased them 8 years ago and they are still in the box, with the tags never shot. He paid next to nothing for them and asked if I could help sell them. We would split any profits or he said I can take any which one of the 5 Hs rifles for sale and sell the remaining 4. Just wondering if I should grab one or sell all 5

    I have a 28 Nosler built off a 2000 action. Started life as a 300 rum then once that barrel started going I had my buddy spin up a Brux in 28.

    He said the action was as true as any custom he had built off of. I love 3 position safety’s too. Their triggers are fantastic.

    They only place they fall short is with the length of their magazines. Fantastic design, attractively built and feed very well. Just short. I would probably put them on every rifle I had IF they were longer. The magazine lenght is what dictated my decision to go 28 Nos. I would have rebarelled into 300 RUM again had it not been for the lenght issue.

    I also have a HS in 270 wsm that I would love to turn into the 6.5 Saum or PRC when the barrel goes But I’m not even going to try, the magazine is much to short even with a short throated reamer.

    So I think they are a great gun/ action, just be aware if you build off one to think over your cartridge of choice very well. My gunsmith thought that a Wyatt’s centerfeed may be able to work with the feed rails (or lack of) on the 2000 action to gain lenght but wasn’t sure.

    I have three, all very accurate rifles. I was at a friendly 3 gun club shoot this spring- took my htr 6.5-284. Only issue was I misjudged the distance on one set of targets. Dropped me to 3rd place.
    Lots of other customs and factory rifles seemed to have feeding issues. All three of mine feed-eject flawlessly even running the bolt hard on timed stages or movers.

    Both of my htr rifles are 1/2 moa capable with ten shot groups at 300 going under 1/2moa. They may not look as flashy as many others, but they work well.
