The Walnut Hunter brings you multiple colors, calibers, and barrel lengths. I tried a few different oils and greases on mine (since I had four actions to test, why not change up the flavor!)

The HOWA 1500 barreled actions are legendary for precision perfection. Sportsman's Guide has your LSI Howa Multicam Package Bolt Action .300 Winchester Magnum 4-16x44mm Scope 5+1 Rounds 5+1 available at a great price in our Bolt Action col… It doesn’t matter if you’re at a PRS event or in the mountains of Montana, you need a bolt-rifle that works – always. Howa sent me instructions and I followed them almost to the letter, the short version is for the first 10 shots clean the bore with a soaked patch - no brushes, just a patch (I cheated a little and used a bore rope - not a bore snake, just a bore rope) after every shot. Worked very well! Let us know in the comments! Both the ESS and LSS-XL can deliver amazing stuff – if you do your part! I have a HOWA 1500 in 308 with the HS Precision stock. For the first ten rounds, clean and let the barrel cool between each round fired using a patch and rod only.

Can you verify your group size and distance on the 6.5 CM group? The .30-06, .300 Win Mag, and .308 rifles all shot that or better using mass-produced mid-tier ammo. Basically, it’s the best out-of-the-box trigger I’ve ever used. I know I said those people who said that “all bolt actions are the same” were wrong, but they aren’t completely wrong.

And if you’re wondering what that flyer is at the top of the target – that was from the gentleman next to me trying to ring steel with his Mosin-Nagant using Tulammo…he was only off his target by 4 feet….

Get proficient on YOUR time. With the huge influx of budget-minded bolt-action rifles on the market, a common trend we’re seeing is the use of plastic for the bottom “metal” of the rifle action. Boyds’ AT-One is a great stock to work with, a nice cross between a precision stock and a classic wood. All four of my actions had identical pull weights and they matched what Howa claims them to be: 3-pound pull weight triggers. 1/4 MOA at 150 yards would be 3/8ths of an inch. I plan on buying a couple more Boyds’ for my .270 Win Tikka and my Ruger 10/22 as Boyds’ has now become my goto for hunting stocks. When I purchased the BA Light chassis from MPA they specifically said don't bed the action. Granted, I have big hands – but the knob is on the small side regardless. I am very surprised by the quality of the rifle for the price. While plastic saves cost and a tiny amount of weight, it’s damned unhelpful for strength and mounting in an aftermarket stock. Is Sweet's 7.62 solvent acceptable? The last day of deer here in Michigan was yesterday and I dropped a doe at 375 yards using Winchester XP 130 gr. I would compare it to and place it on par with two-stage triggers from Gessisle and Timminy. While there are some minor things I would change, they also offer several nice features that aren’t found in other rifles of the same price point.

It would be good to note here that the bolt and handle are machine from one solid piece. all 3 are !/2 MOA shooters with my handloads.

That's my dream rifle. However, that really should tell you how great of a BA and stock this set up is. The third setting is a complete safety that locks the bolt handle in place while disconnecting the trigger. Right off the bat, Howa pleased me by having true metal in their bottom metals. Bullseye is 1/4-inch size, the group was slightly under 1/5th MOA - that ragged hole was a FIVE shot group at 150 yards.

Yes, there are better actions and barrels in the world of custom precision shooting and high-end hunting – but not at this price range.

The AT-One makes it very easy to get in a great shooting position and the Howa 1500 puts rounds where you send them, period. Very cool bit of history Michael - thanks for the story! You said the bullseye is 1/4...not sure if you mean 1/4 MOA. Both systems were very easy to install, it was literally just removing two screws – setting the barreled action in the stock/chassis, and screwing it into the right torque level. Good article, David! The bullet holes for a 6.5 will be approx 1/4 of an inch and the bullseye appears to be at least 3 times the diameter of the bullet holes. Both are outstanding. I made the youtube vid on shortening the spring to reduce trigger pull. But now after using them, my wallet cries knowing I can never go back to budget chassis.
