im very new to shooting rifles i have only shot my DPMS LR308 a few times since it cost a bit of money to shoot it. i decided to buy myself a bolt action .223 its a bit cheaper to shoot and still has some punch to longer ranges. once i get into reloading i can play with the 308 again anyways heres my new rifle with some group shots not great groups but im ok with it. im sure i will get better groups with time.

Great choice - tighten those groupings a little and you'll be hittin longer distances before you know it!

Good looking rifle. Good shooting. Try some better ammo (match grade) and you might be very surprised at how your groups might shrink.

Great choice! Just sold my HOWA 1500 .30-06 a month or so ago...already regretting it.
