 Howa1500 6.5 GRENDEL 22" SPORTER BARRELED MINI ACTION.


I ordered it ( well backordered ) from Brownell.
I'm hoping for the best. The last time I was looking at it, it was simply listed as "Out of stock" now it is a Backorder item.
Maybe there is some light in the tunnel?
They don't charge your account till it is ready to ship.
I got a promo code for $20 off so I ordered a Howa mini action drop in stock for $40. If I get an action I'll be ready if not I have a mini Howa stock for $20.
Gota love the times we live in.
Still no word on the .210 shot mold I ordered a month ago.
When Uncle Bidden sends me some money I plan to order the Ear plugs I was talking about.
We got some information on the reloader 26 powder in the 8mm RM. Loaded up 5 groups of 4 with it and 220 Sierra bullets.
Maybe going out this weekend and do a speed/ accuracy testing on it. The load I have now speedo's at 3100 and under an inch at 100 yards, 5" at 500 yards.
I don't know what to expect, Hoping for more speed???

Winds back and snow is going, still no chance to get the Vaccine for a 65 year old white guy yet.
 Hope all is well ALL.

sounds good.
The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.
