Ordered & installed the DBM floor plate & 10rd magazine for my Howa 'Ranchland Compact' in .308win
The floor plate & magazine is plastic, seems solid, looks decent on this rifle but not as nice or as flush fitting as the stock metal hinged floor plate.
I purchased this for the DBM only, the stock setup held 5rds IIRC and was impressed by it.
The 10rd magazine is shown, but I will be ordering a more practical 5rd magazine for hunting.
The magazine is single stack.
Just running rounds through it to test feeding, was without issue.
Buying some bullets, might get a chance to shoot it with the new magazine in a week or two.
I really like the rifle.

looks great. a Howa 1500 Ranchland in .223 or .243 is on my list. I really like the look of the box mag.

I have been looking for a .22-250 or .243 and setting it up just like Lone-wolf's.

Please let us know how everything works.

FH, I got mine from Bartons in GP.

The scope came with the rifle as a combo package and works OK.
