Thread: whats your view

    whats your view

    Axiom stock for my Howa 1500 and fitted it and the mag conversion today. I already had one on my Ruger 10/22 which I like, and thought it would be good on the Howa (also thought it would be lighter but there is only 100 gr in it). Not 100% sure, any views:

    .308, because if I want to watch something run away, I'll take my dog for a walk.

    Go with the original stock, SOOOOO much better than that other piece of crap.

    Not so sure myself.
    My 8yr old prefers it though because it looks more like something out of a video game

    Sorry, a bit cruel but genuinely, I didn't make that up

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Hugh. It's a good question and I don't know is the short answer. I guess you need to develop a load for each configuration and see which one shoots best. Have fun. Good luck. JCS

    Hideous! Spoilt the look of a nice rifle there I reckon. Looks like some kind of 'Geeky' airsoft military replica!

    Does either of them shoot better?

    Personally, I wouldn't want either of them, but given your circumstances I'd choose the one that does the job best.

    whatever floats your boat..but as long as it doesn't set foot in the countryside and stays on the range it's fine
