    Yeah, I have dealer friends too...probably not worth it for either of us to trade across. It would be cheaper for your friend to pick you up something from Zander's or Accusport by the time we paid shipping both ways. Might ask him for some prices...you should be able to get a nice Howa barreled varmint action for $350 or so. Highly recommended. Rem 700 SPS rifles wouldn't be much more than that.

    I've got a built-up Howa w/Timney Trigger and a Hogue full-bed stock, and a Rem 700 built up with a B&C stock, and a couple ARs always around.

    ya i've been looking at howas but my dad and buddy are die hard remington and winchester fans so it's hard getting a jap gun to fly around here. currently just bought a remington 700 LSS in a 300 win mag :) and the sps was what i was looking for but if those howas are that cheap i'd like to build one deff.

    Im selling this. I own a small business selling guns and outdoors gear and would gladly make a deal for a fellow Tacoma owner. Ive lined out how to make an order from me on this thread. Let me know if you want quotes on anything.

    My Howa shot real good first time out. Groups at 100 were a shade over an inch with some wind and a semi poor sandbag set-up.

    montana i'd get the 204 because you can soot cayotes and drop them a lot easier with the 204 and ammo is within a good price range of eachother so the 204 is the way i would go. imo and bobcat how do you like the howas? and i'm thinking of buying a howa or a weatherby whatever i find cheaper because they basically are the same rifle.

    Ok here is the deal. I got my howa on galleryofguns.com for $525 shipped and transfered. It was on sale and a great price. My second time out I used HSM (out of Stevensville, MT) 32 grain bullets and got a five shot group at 100 yards all touching. Serioulsy a dime nearly covered the hole. Cant complain about that. Ammo is pricey.

    Mine is a 24 inch bull barrel and it is HEAVY. Definately a bench gun, so if you are into shooting from a position and long range it is great. If you want to walk and shoot free standing, it is way too heavy at over 10 lbs. Any shorter barrel than 24 inches, you will loose velocity, which is one of the big selling points of the 204. Also, if you go non-bull barrel you will heat up quick and loose accuracy. So, if you want a more portable centerfire gun to shoot under 300 yards just get a 223. Way cheaper to shoot.

    Buuuuut, if you are after a gopher gun you will not beat a 17hmr. I have a CZ and its lights out accurate and cheap to shoot. I hit a gopher at a legit (measured it out) 305 yards on Sunday with it. Also two more in the high 200s. I would also recommend a Savage 17hmr. They are also very accurate but cheaper, both in price and componets. Get yourself a good scope and a bipod and you will love a 17.

    Pm me I can talk forever about this stuff.

    Yeah I have decided to go with the 17 savage with the acutriger. I can't afford the 204 and just want to hit gophers with my first shot unlike a 10/22.
