For sale is a Howa 1500 Mini Action in 6.5 Grendel with a 20" threaded barrel. The action is in a Oryx aluminum chassis and it has a Warne 20 MOA scope base, and will include the pictured Harbor Freight hard rifle case (it is actually a pretty nice case if you haven't seen one). The Optic is not included but I can include the 30mm Warne Mountain Tech high (.550" base to bottom of optic) rings for $75 more (they run around $130 online).

I did a modification to the Oryx Chassis so you can remove the butt pad/spacer to clean the action instead of removing the action from the chassis (I included a picture of my modification)

I purchased this rifle with the intent to stretch out my shooting; however, I am having limited time to workup a proper load for it and have lost interests in the rifle. I have found that it does not like 123gn Hornady SST or ELD loads, using a friends load of a 120gn spitzer sierra over 26.5gn of benchmark seems to tighten things up to about 1.25" 5-shots (I only shot a few of these) and the 130 gn Federal Berger factory load seems to shoot around 1.25" 5-shots. I think some load workup will tighten this rifle up and the purchaser really needs to be someone who is planning to load for it to unlock more accuracy - I just don't have the time to do it. I am heavily discounting this rifle which is practically new with only about 80 rounds through it and moving on to other project.

$398 Barreled action (street price)
$399 Oryx Chassis (street price)
$65 Warne 20 MOA sight base (street price)
$120 Harbor Freight Case (coupon discounted price)

$982 is my out of pocket on this rifle. I will take $600 for the setup +$75 If you want the 30mm Warne Rings

I will need to either see a driver's license + concealed carry + a bill of sale OR we meet at an FFL and do a transfer (I have a great relationship with one here in Winchester and I will eat the cost if you pass your check - you fail it you pay for it).
