Howa 1500 accuracy

The below target was shot with a stock Howa 1500, heavy barrel, 22-250 caliber. Bushnell Elite 3200 10x 40mm scope.



Not bad for a stock rifle IMO.

I also notice that the date is wrong. I am a year behind apparently. This was yesterday.

This is why the Howa 1500 and Weatherby Vanguard have such a good reputation.

I have one of each, and see no reason why they shouldn't!!

Very believable. Mine was a pretty straight shooter.

I have a Howa 1500 made for Smith & Wesson in .308. I haven't shot it in 20 years, I'll have to break it out and give it a run.

Howas are very good shooters. Congratulations!

Howa 1500 action is regarded by some to be better than Rem 700.. its a nice part. I am making Detachable(Using AICS Mags) bottom metal for this unit as we speak..

I'm happy with my Howa/Hogue/Nikko-Stirling 30-06 package. It's holding sub-MOA.
