Why don't you just get a used Belgium BAR to replace the one you lost? I saw one in a local pawn shop for $450.

The CZ 527 is a great rifle!!! One question, You wanted a .30-06 because you hunt brush. Any bullet, no matter the weight will deflect upon hitting a twig.
The 7.62x39 is at 2100fps w/ a 150gr bullet, A .30-30 w/ a 150gr is at 2300fps and can shoot heavier bullets. There are some great old Savage and Marlin bolt guns in .30-30. There are lots of Savages in .303 savage on the auction sites for short $$$$

The main reason I want a 30-06 is because when I was younger I lived in California and we used to hunt thick woods and we never used anything under it because of the knock down power up close because it sucks tracking a deer down a mtn and drag it back up

So why a quick liking for 7.62x39?? The BC and SD suck, so it is not a stroke of lightning. As I stated, the 527 is a great rifle, as is the 550 series. Standard point blank range is 150 yards w/ 7.62x39. There are much better options. It really drops like a rock after that. For $100.00 more the 550 is a leep up. You'll have a truely great rifle for any situation that is availible.

The main plus with the 7.62x39 is the ready supply of cheap ammo for practice. 125 grain Silver Bear soft points are readily available as is PP 150 grain SP. It is very popular in Europe. It is enough gun for a deer or hog. It is not meant to use beyond 200 yards. The rifle is a very handy size and weight for use in brush country. As one poster pointed out any bullet will be deflected by brush. The term "brush gun" means easy to maneuver in brush, not the ability to shoot through it.
Now if you want to go bigger look at this one in 30-06.

I know theres no differents in the 06 and 7.62 when it hit a stick but I like the thought of the extra power and I also thought about the browning micro hunter in 300 wsm
