Build a Custom Rifle that Shoots One of THE Hottest New Long-Range Cartridges!
This variant of the popular Howa M1500 barreled action is chambered for the new .300 PRC (.300 Precision Rifle Cartridge) round, introduced by Hornady in 2018. Now, you can build a custom rifle chambered in this powerful long-range cartridge based on the .375 Ruger case and designed to shoot very-low-drag .308 bullets. It comes fully assembled with the barrel chambered, installed, and properly headspaced - eliminating the most difficult work in "building" your own bolt action rifle. Install in the stock or chassis system of your choice to form a high-quality long-range rifle at a very affordable cost.
The potential of a cartridge like the .300 PRC would be wasted on a rifle with a workaday trigger, so you get Howa's HACT two-stage trigger that delivers a "de-LIGHTful" consistent pull, and a crisp let-off. The "Howa Actuator Controlled Trigger" has a uniquely configured sear and precision-cut contact surfaces, so creep is entirely eliminated. A three-position safety allows the bolt to be completely locked and also enables the action to be unloaded while on safe. Other features include:
- Sporter-contour 24" barrel with 1-8" rifling
- 1/2"-28 tpi muzzle threads (cap included) for mounting device of your choice
- Two-stage target trigger with 3-position safety
- Tough matte black Cerakote® finish
- Total weight of only 5.1 lbs.
The "standard equipment" of the Howa M1500 .300 PRC barreled action doesn't stop there! It has Howa's one-piece bolt body with two locking lugs and an integral bolt handle. The bolt face is precisely squared to the barrel chamber for excellent contact with the receiver recess. An M16-style extractor ensures reliable, positive extraction. A full-length bottom metal with hinged floorplate, magazine box, mag spring, and front/rear action screws are part of the package. Receiver is drilled and tapped for a scope base. FFL required for purchase.
