    Are they worth owning? Seen a couple around for a decent price and wondered if there any good.

    I have two relatively new ones in traditional mag calibers (non-Roy). So far so good, but still in process of breaking in. I like the new synthetic stocks.I like the monte carlo shape. Others may not. The inserts feel secure, and the forend is a more modern look.
    One (a 300 WM) is in stainless, the other, a 7 RM is blued. Thus far I am using Federal factory ammo.
    Both are topped with Vortex HS optics on an EGW 20MOA pic base. I will report back with any glitches. Price seemed right. Basically Howa actions. Trigger was 3.0+ measured out of box, which is where I left them. Initially slightly less than moa group but was not really looking to group just yet....long intervals between shots for breaking in. The stainless hardly heated up at all.
