There a very popular budget rifle package over this side of the pond and plenty decent enough for a work horse that your not worried about getting wet or banged about.
There tends to be a bit of flex in there fore end but this may have been rectified in the new ones

Howa is a respectable maker. They were (are?) the manufacturers of the Weatherby Vanguard line.

Not to mention one of two contractors of the Armalite AR18/AR180 back in the day.

I think they make Browning also? Had a HOWA once, very well made for short money.

They are generally shooters as well...

I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase a Howa if the price was right...
