    Tikka t3 bore guide for howa?

    I'm shortly going to be in possession of a howa1500 in .308. Anyone know if my bore guide that fits my tikka t3 in .243 will fit it?

    thanks,
    mike

    I have one, and only one, MTM bore guide. I use it in Tikkas, Howas, Winchesters.... you name it. I cut the locking stud off of it years ago and found it fit almost everything.~Muir

    Thanks for that, fingers crossed my guide fits then (forget the make but it's not a possum hollow one, it one with a metal tube down the middle and a thicker metal collar that fits snug around the tube and holds it in the action). Guess it depends on the diameter of the howa bolt being the same or similar as the tikka bolt as to whether it fits or not?

    HI Mike,

    If it helps, I used the same bore guide in the tikka and HOWA.

    Good luck mate
