What can anybody tell me about this rifle? Looking to get my son a new gun and thought this might be a good choice. Looking at the Mini Excl Lite for the adjustable LOP or the Mini Action. Thoughts? Better options?

I can't think of a better choice. If they made a lefty I'd already have one for my grandson.

I wouldn’t let finding a left handed bolt in the Grendel keeping you from having one. I shoot left handed and don’t own any LH rifles but own a few RH ones.

Shot a mini action about 4 weeks ago and it was an awesome shooting gun, if they had a CM in the mini action with a 22” barrel I’d be all over it

My daughters used one for her first 2 or 3 deer. Shot a nice buck with it. 123 gr sst makes a bad day for deer.

Ditto. Cant say enough about it. Liked the 6.5 Grendel so much, I picked up a mini action in 300 Blackout for my son to shoot this year.

I've been really impressed with the Howa rifles.

If Howa or CZ made a lefty grendel, I'd already have one too. Can't much lighter for a deer rifle.
