I bought one of my grandsons (11 years old) a Savage 10 sporter weight in 223 (1-9 twist) and he was shooting sub 1 moa groups with 55 grn handloads. He was out shooting his fathers Rem 700. His dad sold his 700.
The CZ varminter has a 1:9 twist. I've shot up to 65gr so far. Like a laser.
55gr, even commercail ammo out to 300 are always on target. I've loaded down to 52gr., still outstanding. Even Varmint Nightmares shoot very well.
As they say, a picture is worth a Thousand words:
Micro Mauser bolt vs standard '98 Mauser bolt:
It is a truely amazing rifle. The action is designed around the cartridge, not a cartridge made to fit an action.
