"First, the service and delivery of the Howa package was outstanding. Prices were better than other sites. From order to delivery to my FFL was four days. I will definitely shop here again.About the Howa .204 Axiom/heavy barrel/scope package. I was a little skeptical about the Nikko scope, but after unpacking the contents, all of the mounting hardware was included and setup was easy. Not having a boresight, I was able to zero in the scope at 100 yards within eight shots and at 200 yards I had a 1 inch MOA within four shots, and this was with a 20 mph cross wind. Come a calmer day, the grouping will be reduced. The Nikko 4-16x44 has a parallax adjustment that works well for shots out to the 200 yard range, but I think that is about it's effective limit; otherwise, it's nice scope. The Axiom stock and barrel combination is superb. The heavy barrel keeps cool and shoots true. Howa recommends breaking in the barrel with a shoot once, clean, shoot once, clean for the first 10 rounds and then shoot twice, clean for the next ten. You can find the instructions on the Howa website. I added a bi-pod which really assists for sighting in as this combo weighs in around 12 pounds. Trigger pull is in the 3-4 lb range out of the box but can be adjusted (see the Howa website). I found that there was no trigger play whatsoever and release was clean and crisp. The bolt action is smooth. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the performance and appearance of this combo package."
