I bought a Howa heavy barrelled action in 308 Win from Brownells.

It was my grandson's first center fire rifle.

Bought a Hogue full bedded stock for it.

He shot maybe 15 rounds thru it the first outing. I told him shoot for group.

His next 5 shots covered 1" with shot 5 as a called flier that put the group at 1 3/8".

His next outing, the SIL put him on the 200 yd target and he shot maybe a 2" group. This was all with less than 50 rounds thru the barrel.

I think it will be a less than 1" rifle when he gets settled into it.

Total cost for barreled action + stock was approx. $430.00.
