Default Howa rifles are called a Vanguard model by Weatherby

The rifle company Howa is a good one. There rifles are offered by Weatherby as a Vanguard. I think that Weatherby sells more Vanguard rifles then they sell their premier Mark V. The only ding about these that I would agree with is that they are a little heavy and I think come standard with 24 inch barrels in standard calibers. Most other bolt actions by Remington, Ruger, Winchester place 22 inch barrels on standard calibers. For the extra weight you get real steel in the action where it is all milled out with a forged one piece bolt.
