The main point of the thread was to see if anyone here has specifically the Howa 1500 mini action in .300 blackout.
As I mentioned in my OP -...
Years ago I said to myself and LSI that the 1500 mini action would be a perfect fit for the 300 blk.
I had a Ruger Ranch in 300...
The Ruger here cost $400 plus tax. The CZ is over $600 online.
Still interested in a 204, and haven’t bought one yet.
For a toss about, quick predator rifle what about the Ruger American Predator rifle in...
Yep, I'm still reading. I don't have anything to add to the discussion - I'm just listening.
My question has been answered though....
Damon555, I want the faster twist for versatility.
Just for fun. I haven’t bought anything yet.
My plans are to eventually build both the 6br and the 223, but I’m going to begin with the 223...
300 and in on distance. 26” heavy varmint 1/7 twist.
With a quality barrel and the right load are we talking a .3 or .4 rifle?
I’ve read how accurate the 6br is - basically it’s king - and in general beats the 223.
However, how accurate is your 223?
Are we talking a...
A couple of points to add:
1. I do have a 223 which most would classify as a “walking varmint/predator” rifle. It’s a Winchester Model 70...
LOL. Snert, I may not be smart enough to figure out your implications!
When you head out to shoot for pleasure/enjoyment what rifle do you grab?
Of this configuration:
1. Bolt rifle
I have a late 80s (1988 or 1999) model 70 Lightweight (not featherweight) in 223.
It is a push feed with a 22” barrel.
I've been chasing whitetail deer in Georgia for many years. For years everyone regarded the .243 Winchester a marginal cartridge for deer.
Now that you mention it I may have missed the mark with my assessment.
I should have said - no Lapua.
Thanks for the input. I’m still learning, so what do you mean by the stories are true. Thanks
Also, there isn’t a vast selection of 204 brass. I looked online at Midway, Brownell’s, and Grafs.
If I have a rifle built, it seems a 20...
I have a Calvin Elite sitting in the toolbox waiting on a rifle. Maybe I should just buy a Remington.
Sniper338 will you explain in depth? Is it the Howa mini? Or is it the 6.5 Grendel the problem? Or is it the combo of the two?
Howa is reported...
