We reported on the new Howa .222 Remington Mini Action Rifle back in late September, 2015.  This new offering piqued our interest in the Mini-Action Rifle, because the .222 Remington is one of those classic calibers that got pushed aside by other, more mainstream, cartridges.  Putting the .222 Remington in the Mini Action is a perfect match.  A small, potent caliber, in a compact and light rifle, makes sense to predator hunters, as well as varmint hunters who like to stay mobile, as opposed to sitting at a bench all day.  When I shot this rifle at the 2016 SHOT Show Media Range Day, I immediately saw the potential for serious varmint hunters, who want something a bit different than the standard .223 rifle.

Here is our video from the 2016 SHOT Show with Matt Hornback describing the rifle, and some thoughts that I added.  Legacy Sports International will be sending us a rifle to test both at the range, and in the field after varmints.  I look forward to putting it to work chasing ground squirrels, and especially rock chucks in areas where we have to hike in to get into decent numbers.
