Your D/Howa is a Copy of the SAKO Finnbear with a 1&10 twist and YES it will Shoot a 180Gr/06 Ammo.
There was a Recall on Dickson-Howa Rifles: Accidental Discharge when Closing the Blot on a Live Round in the Chamber with the SAFETY OFF and NO Finger on the trigger.
Hope this Helps.

As Treestand said, 1:10 twist. You can shoot any bullet weight from 110g up to 210g. It is perfect for 180s. If you are in doubt about the recall, put in a Timney trigger. Get the one for the Howa 1500/Vanguard. It is a worthwhile upgrade anyway; it is adjustable but much smoother to shoot than the original trigger. You should be able to find one on ebay and they are easy to install yourself.

I second the suggestion for a Timney trigger.

I should add, I've had no accidental discharges with my Howa varminter, but the Timney trigger I purchased was a crisp improvement, and my .223 turns in consistently sub-MOA groups, so accuracy is commendable.
