Got a good deal on this one, and it's a shooter!

I have a Howa 1500 varmint in .223 and it's also a shooter. I'm quite impressed with Howa actions and barrels, especially at that price point.

That is good shooting for a .300 Wthby! I read your article that you linked, and I see you used IMR7828. That is my favorite powder for this cartridge, though a lighter load than I use with 180 bullets. I am happy that I usually get 3/4 inch groups. I load for my buddy, and his rifle shoots small groups with my load as well.

Great cartridge. I prefer the Mark V action, but I own Vanguards too.

good luck with it.
A 30cal will reach out and touch them. A 50cal will kick their butt.
