Sighted in my S&W (Howa) 1500 .30-06 the other day. Shot 10 rounds, the first 9 in 3 groups of 3. The last group of 3 shots was less than an inch and centered nicely. I told the spotter I'd fire one last round for good measure and it was a spinner. I want this rifle buried with me.:laugh: From what I've heard, this is not out of the ordinary for S&W/Howa 1500s and Weatherby Vanguards, which are all the same rifle made by Howa. Does anybody else have similar experiences with this model rifle?
