    Howa 1500 Flag Chassis

    Picked up a new rifle during this great quarantine time...

    Howa 1500 Flag Chassis in 6.5 Creedmoor. Cant wait to get some time to shoot this one! I know a few people on here have them also. Asked around and they came really well recommended.

    Howa 1500 Flag Chassis

    I recently let my howa 1500 go. It was chambered in 375 ruger. I really liked the trigger. It was a good rifle, i just did not shoot it much. I picked up an r700 in 308 that kinda took its place. It was much cheaper to shoot 308 than 375. Haha. But you will like it. And 6.5 creedmoor is a nice round. Enjoy!!!

    I probably wont shoot this one much either but its there if I want to I guess. I can shoot all my other stuff right out back with no issues but this one will be a little much.

    Ive got a buddy that has 300 yard range that I can shoot at and he has been going to a few other ranges that are up to a mile. Thunder Valley and another one over around Athens.

    Now just to get some ammo and see how it does!

    I may have just picked one of these flag chassis howa 1500s up. How do you like yours Brian? Did you get to shoot it much with ammo shortages the last year or so?

    I love it! Haven't had a real good chance to play with it yet at a decent range. Still looking for a spot to go over 1000.

    Those are real nice guns also. I was looking at that and the Howa both in 6.5 Creedmoor. Ive already got a .308 and wanted something different.

    My buddy goes there a lot. I may have to go with him this coming year and try it out. He has a 1500 also and he loves it.
