    Help with value please. Howa 308.

    I bought a HOWA 1500 on the site last year as a stop gap whilst my 270 was being re barrelled etc.

    Thats all done now so the HOWA is sat gathering dust.

    It is a 308 that has been dipped in realtree. It has shot less than 200 rounds, and has been threaded by Neil Mckillop, bolt handle job by Neil, EGW weaver type rail, and Highlands outdoors magazine conversion with 5 round magazine.

    What I would like to know is what is a fair price to sell this for, as I said, its not getting used now, so may as well go.

    If I sell the rifle, I also have a Swaro Z6 2.5-15x56 with 4a-300 reticle that has been out only twice, so whats this worth too.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I reckon 650-700 would be a fair price for the rifle not so sure about the scope buddy.......

    One of our distributers here in the USA Jerry's Sport Center ran a special a few months back on 20" barreled Howa's in 223 and 308 with 10 round quick detach mags . Our cost for one was $369 . We got a friend a 308 then chopped the barrel to 18" and threaded it for a can . After that I worked up some sub sonic loads for him using the Outlaw bullets 220 grain max expansion bullet and 14.5 grains of Trailboss . Sighted in dead on at 100 yards with the can attached at getting 1060 FPS the thing shoots 1 1/2" high at 25 , 3 1/2" high at 50 yards and 3" high at 75 yards . I also shot a 3 shot group at 100 yards with this thing right around half an inch !

    Of the three 308's I worked up this past summer with subsonic can loads the Howa was the best shooter and at the cheapest price !

    The Savage Model 11 Hog Hunter in 308 did almost as well and the Remington 700 Tactical was the worst .The Remington was almost twice the price of the Howa !

    Just some insight I acquired over the spring and summer !
