    I am considering a howa thumbhole sporter in 25-06 or 7mm-08. I know the calibers and just want to get some opinions of these guns. Is it worth the cost for the thumbhole laminate over the howa hogue?

    either will work if you do your part.

    I noticed the calibers are not too different in their versatility the 7mm-08 has a little more energy down range but if my range finder can't read it i won't shoot. ( I got a range finder for christmas finally! Woo hoo!) exclaims

    if you are going to be using it for hunting i'd definately go with the Hogue.
