Re: Howa 1500 in .223?

OK, I'm not playing anymore! Wasted the day messing about with it, tried all sorts, totally frustrated. Got the .308 out, one shot, centre of the bull, thank god for that. So tomorrow I'm popping the combo back to the gun shop and see how they fair. Will report back with findings . Thank you all aga...

Re: Howa 1500 in .223?

Wow! Again thanks again for such great help. My plan also is to strip it back to its bones, loctite every screw, reassemble and try it. If this fails I will try a different scope "really not keen on this Nikon scope anyway", then if that all fails it's back to the gun shop who know I'm not a messer ...

Re: Howa 1500 in .223?

Thank you again guys, I've put over eighty rounds of hornandy v Max and Norma through it in the last five days with varying degrees of accuracy. I keep cleaning the barrel, I let it cool down between groups of three, and just when you start thinking its there they go two inches out again. Today a ma...

Re: Howa 1500 in .223?

Some really informative replies thank you. I did buy the howa 1500 in the keeper package. Interestingly I was really pleased with the accuracy initially, using hornandy 40grn I was getting clover leaf groups at 100 yds easily. Then I decided to try some 50,s They didn't group so well, went back to t...

Re: Howa 1500 in .223?

Thank you gentlemen, appreciated.
I was very tempted to go back to 22-250 but fancied a change. Can always go back to it if I find the .223 lacking.

Howa 1500 in .223?

Hi folks, I have just put in a variation for a .223 as I have decided to start taking on fox work again. When I was doing it before I always used either the .22-250 or .243 Couple of other pest controllers I know keep going on about .223 so I've decided to give one a go. I'm leaning towards the howa...

Re: Archer, anyone interested?

Well admittedly pest control does pay rather well when it's your own business :D , however the unit has paid for itself many times over, also it's not working as it should, and lastly I've got to sell it cheap as my accountant will want to off set it against profits. :angel: If the first gentleman d...

Re: Archer, anyone interested?

Thank you for the offer, unfortunately mmbeatle has said he would like it so I must in fairness give him first refusal.
I don't want to be Seen as a profiteering you know what!
If he changes his mind you have second refusal at the lower price he offered.
Kind regards,
Jamie.

Re: Archer, anyone interested?

Hiya, as I said, I'm not trying to auction it. If you feel happy to pay that, I feel it's a fair price.
I have explained the situation exactly as it has happened, I wouldn't want anyone buying it and then saying it doesn't work.
Regards,
Jamie.
