New Chamberings Announced for Howa Mini Action Rifle

Legacy Sports International has announced that its Howa Mini Action will be available in 6.5 Grendel for 2015, making it the first bolt-action of its kind. Current available calibers include .204 Ruger, .222 Rem. and .223 Rem.

6.5 Grendel is suitable for long-range shooting, varmints and medium game.

The chamber and bolt of the new Mini Action are roughly 12 percent shorter than regular short actions. Such a feature produces a shorter bolt throw and less overall weight on the rifle. The Mini Action is available in three barrel configurations and features a three position safety and a HACT two-stage trigger. Every Howa Mini Action rifle is factory equipped with a synthetic, detachable magazine and a lightweight composite stock.

The Mini Action ships with MSRPs ranging between $608 and $855, depending on which configuration/package consumers choose.
