Thanks all for your suggestions. I just ordered my first rifle - CZ 452 Lux .22LR with iron sight. Now I have questions about ammo and rifle cleaning, which I'll start separate posts.

If you want to plink and shoot a lot of target a 22 LR is your best bet. The 22 MAG isn't too bad pricewise, you can find ammo for it for $8.00 a box of 50 but the better stuff is closer to $13.00. Another though is a ceterfire 22 like the 22-250 or 223. The 22-250 is a hot little number and very flat shooting. The ammo will be more dough however.
If you have interest in an Anschutz I don't think you would be too bothered at the price of centerfire 22 ammo ! The 223 can be had relitively cheap as it is a popular and abundant cartridge.

Go with the CZ 455 American and you can get barrels for both + a barrel for the 17 HMR.

You can modify the trigger to a very respectful release for a lot less than $100.

Not only that, it's cheaper than the 453.

In the great tradition of the internet forums I will tell you what I'd buy and totally ignore that you have already posted that you ordered a CZ rifle...

I have a bolt action, mag fed Marlin 780 (western auto revelation) that I bought in 1966 when I was 12 years old and it is still going strong. I have shot thousands & thousands of rounds thru it with out a single problem. It looks like it will be going strong long after I'm dead. (great now I'm depressed) A good quality 22 rifle will be a good asset to have when the zombies attack.

Default Range Report - 452 Lux

I just came back from the range. Shot over 200 rounds with my new CZ 452 Lux. What a beautiful and accruate rifle! I shot at 25m and 50m and made quite some accurate shots - as good as those who used scopes.

Very smooth bolt and actions. Just love it. Cannot wait until next weekend.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Well, I guess I'll throw in my two cents worth here. I have owned many .22 rifles in my years, and I have had some real M.O.A guns. One thing I have learned through out my shooting career is that Higher price for a rifle dosent nessaceraly mean better accuracy. There are Marlins and Savage's out there right now that will shoot the tits off a mother flea. If you want a real accurate and fun gun to shoot, and don't mind paying a bit more for ammo, the Savage 93F in 17HMR is a great buy, and a very, very good rifle. Just my two cents.
