Well, finally got the Howa I got at the Sheriff's sale out to the range today. Stopped by my local gun store yesterday to get some ammunition. I purchased the Hornady Superformance 130 Grain SST rounds which was all he had in Hornady. I had so much good luck with my 308 with Hornady SST 150s in the past I thought I would try some in the 270. But he did not have any 150s so I settled for the 130s. Andy got the gun on paper and close at 100 yards. I then posted this target and started tweaking it in for the final zero. As you can see the first two were high and slightly left! Made adjustments and got one centered but slightly right. Then it came in just fine from there! The trigger has a little creep in it and barely can be detected, but tolerable at this point. I certainly can not complain about the rifles accuracy! Very glad I got it! It will be one of the rifles going to Texas with me don't you agree? Are the Howa triggers adjustable? Have not had time to do any research on this as of yet! If not, it will in the future probably get a new trigger when I get back from this years hunt.
Thanks for the information from all of you. I will see and let you know how the 130s do on the hunt.
