A short while ago there was a deal that "I couldn't refuse" and I ended up with a Dickson-Howa Golden Bear in .308. I read a few threads that referred to a Howa or a Howa action and that they are a copy of a Sako. I didn't read of any personal experience with them, though. Anyone have any comments about the Howa in .308? I may use it this year for Caribou. Haven't shot it yet.
