I took the CZ527 in .223 out today. I had not shot it in quite some time. The last time it was shot was by my 13 year old. After the 1st 5 rounds I move the scope 3 (1/4") clicks left. It was awesome after that. Using cheap PMC bronze ammo it was still shooting under an inch. My buddies son came with us, He had just bought a shotgun. He was doing the video thing while we were shooting. He showed his dad that while I was shooting the only thing you could see that moved was my thumb working the action, Big bear hands. I was amazed that the barrel never even got warm after a 5 round mag. I love this rifle. Shot about 200 rounds of .223 today, 200 9x19 from my carbine. Fun day.
