I have the Howa mini action in 6.5 grendel and 7.62x39. It has a nice action. Combined with the Bell & Carlson stock makes for a lightweight, maneuverable rifle. They are fairly accurate as well. Sold my Ruger American in 7.62x39 after getting the Howa.How do I get one? No gun manufacturer makes one. What will it take to have one made? At the LGS picked up a Howa mini action in 350 legend, wow perfect brush gun out to 200 yards. Does anyone have a Howa action, pros and cons?
The 6.8 does it pretty darn well .Most hunters and shooters would probably agree that Modern Sporting Rifles chambered in .223 Remington or 5.56x45mm NATO are great for varmint hunting, target shooting, and just having fun plinking at the range. However, using those smaller cartridges on larger game is a very controversial subject.
The AR-platform is extremely popular in the United States and offers many inherent advantages for hunters though.
For this reason, designers have made many attempts at building more powerful cartridges for the AR-15 over the years. Unfortunately, there are some significant challenges involved with building larger bore cartridges that improve upon the performance of the .223 Remington and 5.56x45mm NATO while still reliably functioning in an AR-15.
A couple of good friends have Howas. All the rifles are good shooters. I have come close to purchasing them a couple of times, even had money down on one, but never quite ended up with one. Their rifles tend to be a bit heavy (not that weight is a much of an issue for me). Their actions get high praise. Howa actions are on some of Weatherby rifles.How do I get one?

I would settle for a Savage. Rather have the Ruger... Maybe just maybe Savage will bring back the M-99 and in 6.8 SPC lol.If a manufacturer made it today, I would most definitely purchase a 6.8 SPC in any lever, pump, or bolt gun. Probably all three... Did Savage ever make any rifle in 6.8 SPC? I know they dropped their 6.5 G project because they could not get it to perform well. When I ordered a custom build 338 Win Mag, Savage told me if they ever made a rifle in any cartridge I could have one built by then.
Here's my 6.8 drop mag, bolt gun built on a Savage short action (actually, it started out as a cheap Stevens 200 in .223 Rem. with a tupperware stock) added a Douglas 6.8 1:11 twist 20" barrel, MDT chassis & 10 round .223 mag (modified for 6.8), an A*B Arms Urban Sniper Stock and a Rifle Basix trigger.I would settle for a Savage...
I really do like the Bighorn TL3 DLC & a 30 MOA rail. I want a SA and a LA for the bigger Magnums.If you have deep pockets, a Bighorn action with a 224Valkarie bolt head will do it. I think MDT is making 224 Valkarie mags now, so they should work. Just need to pick a stock or chassis that you like, a trigger, and a barrel.
