WCChapin | Scoping Things Out – Howa 1500 Hogue Varminter in .223 Remington
Evaluating Leupold STD dovetail scope ring height on a recently purchased Howa 1500 Hogue Varminter.
The rifle is a 1:12 twist .223 Remington 24″ Heavy Barrel Howa 1500 “Legacy” in a Hogue stock. It is a Legacy Sports International import that I believe is referred to as the HGR90202 Varminter.
This is not a Micro Action .223 – it is built on the “standard” Short Action with a magazine block. It has a non-locking two-position safety.
