    Thanks sean
    If it's anything like my old 223 varmint Howa then it will be spot on.

    I have had a .223 &now have a. 243 and they are great. I don't see the point of spending loads if it's just for fox/stalking. Yes I would like a sake or tikka but the howa is plenty good enough.

    Thanks for your opinions i havent really heard a bad thing yet about the howa so think its a yes :-)

    Mine performs just as well as my mates Tikka's but without the price tag. The hogue stock is a bit flexy and is probably worth upgrading but other than that they are a good solid bit of kit with no plastic bits.

    Mate, I have the Howa stainless in .223 with the Blackhawk Thumbhole stock. Absolutely BRILLIANT rifle. Love shooting it and try to get it out whenever I can. I highly recommend forking out an extra hundred quid or so to get the best stock you can. The rest of it is great. I would have the same rifle in all my different calibres if I was starting again.

    Hi Sean, I have a howa .243 sporter was 22" now 18"absolute tack driver. A howa 7mm rem mag 24" sporter and just ordered a howa .204 24" heavy barrel all in hogue stocks although the .204 will get treated to a heavy tactical stock at some point. Bedded of course. So to answer your question., they're great rifles regardless of cost.
