Long-range shooting today is more of a science than an art. You have to pick that perfect combination of rifle, caliber, and optics before you will be able to tag your target at any predetermined range. The longer the range at which you intend to shoot, the more these variables come into play. Another important point is the trigger. At very long distances, the quality of the trigger can help determine if you hit the bullseye – or miss the target entirely.
Enter the Howa 1500
If you want to excel in this supremely challenging discipline, you need the right tools for the task. This is the part where the Carbon Fiber Howa HS 6.5 Creedmoor Bolt-Action rifle comes into the picture. It is not just any ordinary rifle, but a very precise machine. One that is a perfect blend of very high-performance parts and components that have been unified as one.
The end result is a superbly accurate bolt action rifle. This state-of-the-art long-range weapon is equipped with a whole new world of features designed to enhance its already formidable accuracy. Take, for instance, the carbon wrapped and thread capped, Howa barreled action. It has been mated to the justly renowned HS Precision bed stock. Add to that multiple parts that are a mix of fiberglass, Kevlar, and carbon fiber.
All of this combined creates a formidable weapon that can hold its own against just about every other bolt action rifle out there. The 24-inch barrel guarantees sub-MOA groups even at long distances. This rifle has also been suitably well equipped with Howa’s very own Actuator Controlled Trigger (A.C.T). This is an extremely crisp trigger that breaks like the thinnest sheet of glass. This dual stage trigger comes with a 3-lb two-stage pull as standard.
There are subsonic loads already available for the 6.5 Creedmoor caliber. Keeping this in mind, Howa has added a threaded barrel so it is already suppressor-ready.
The 6.5 Creedmoor: USSOCOM’s Premier Choice!
The US special forces determined the 6.5 Creedmoor to be more effective at longer distances than the conventional 7.62×51 (.308 Winchester) round. They decided in 2018 to shift to the 6.5 Creedmoor for their assault rifle, machine gun, and long-range rifle needs.
Now you can also own the same caliber in an extremely accurate platform. Add the Howa 1500 6.5 Creedmoor to your arsenal so that you will be on the same page as our nation’s top special forces!
