    My Howa Ranchland Compact - Now with 10rd DBM

    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.




    I ordered from the states, but mysticprecision in Canada has them as well.
    My order from sportsmans-depot.com was:
    Items: $74.99(That's the floor plate & 10rd mag combo)
    Shipping: $43.45(USPS)
    Total Cost: $118.44 USD

    looks great. a Howa 1500 Ranchland in .223 or .243 is on my list. I really like the look of the box mag.
    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    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.
