Range report for the Howa 1500 chambered in .308 Took the rifle out this morning to the range, I got there early and no one was there so I set up and got my target ready. The temp was a crisp 38 deg. And had a light crosswind of about 3 mph. Fired the first round and everything functioned fine for a new rifle never fired. I hit the target 5” low and 3” to the right. Taking a second shot just to make sure it was not me I hit 5” low and 2” to the right. After adjusting the sight I fired a round It hit center and to the rights ½” next shot was dead on. I fired the next 5 groups of 2 shots were all with in 1/2 “ and one of them was part in the other hole. The rifle functioned so smooth and felt great to shoot. I can honestly say I am pleased with the rifle. Now if I could just shoot worth a dam I would be happy. It got down right cold while I was out and could not work the hands nor control the rifle well so I called it a day and will go back as soon as I have a far day the really shoot.
