    About To Buy A Rifle in .308 Win Steyr Vs. Bergara Vs. Howa?

    Ok, 6.5 creed is out before anyone says anything. I reload my own ammo, and 30 caliber bullets like .308, 30-06 and eventually .300 PRC are what I want to stick to, but thanks ;). All of these rifles are within a few hundred of each other which makes this hard. I've been eyeballing and just...

    Howa 1500 .308 168gr or 178gr??

    I just picked up a Howa 1500 American Flag Chassis in .308 and am having trouble deciding on what bullet to run.

I have narrowed it down to the tikka, the bergara and the howa. Other rifle suggestions are more than welcome. I...

    Light primer strikes with crater?

    At the range today, I noticed quite a few of my fired cartridges had these light (ish) primer strikes with craters. I’m using a howa 1500 in 6mm CM and using Starline small primer brass, Winchester small primers and Hybrid 100V, slightly higher than medium charges. The pic has what looks to be...

    Gunsmithing Muzzle brake torque/crushing a rifles crown?

    I am working on installing a muzzle brake (Precision armament m4-72) on my heavy barrel 308. I chose to get the PA accu-washer shim set to time the brake. I chose the one I thought was correct, but when tightening down the brake, I could not get it to index properly. Didn't use a torque wrench...

    Howa 1500 .243 groups

    ...I like the new site layout... Well, I finally finished building my first "Sniper" rifle. (I quote the word sniper because I am not a sniper and this rifle will most likely never see any sniper-time) I like it so far... It is heavy, but that equates to shooting comfort. The bolt slides very...

    Rifle Scopes two questions, Howa rail, ring height

    1) Who makes a 20MOA 1-piece rail for a Howa 1500/WBY Vanguard besides Roedale precision? 2) I have Leupold low PRW rings holding my scope onto a Roedale rail on my Sako 75 at the moment, the scope sits irritatingly high. What's another quality option for lower 1" rings than the low PRWs, but...
