Howa is a well known Japanese manufacturer of quality firearms. Howa firearms are imported and sold in the United States through Legacy Sports International.
After trying out the recently introduced Howa MiniAction rifles at SHOT Show 2017, we got a couple of loaners in 6.5 Grendel and 7.62.×39 courtesy of Legacy Sports. These rifles are known for their smooth cycling and lightweight actions, as well as some unique chamber offerings for bolt rifles (6.5 Grendel, 7.62×39). Long story short, we really enjoyed them as discussed in our video below.
The folks at Legacy Sports also conducted extensive accuracy tests of commercial ammunition in 6.5 Grendel and 7.62×39. You can download their reports as follows:
