    A small handy size action, you might take a look at the Howa Mini.
    I have three of them 222,223 and 6.5 Grendel. Looking to do something with the 223. Have not shot the 222 yet ammo is loaded. The Grendel, it shot well from the get go. I may leave it as is, feels just about as handy as a lever gun.

    The 223 may become another 204, but looking hard at a fast twist 223AI.

    My bone stock unbedded factory 700 in .221 has put down some groups in the .1's at 100 yds with just a trigger job and a antigue 24x Leupold. I've only did it once in competition, but I've also shot a 3/4" group at 300 with the same load. This was with cheap $60.00 a 500ct Zmax bullets.
