As an Englishman thats moved to greener pastures across the pond, i now have the benefit of owning firearms! The problem i have though is i come from a culture where there is none and therefore knowledge is limited to say the least! So after about a billion hours reading etc, decided upon what i want....i just cant get away from CZ rifles. I'd almost decided upon the 455, but then started researching them and found quite a few 452 lovers out there who seemed disappointed with them compared to the 452. So, what I'm looking for is a bolt action rifle thats good at around 100 yards mainly, maybe out to 150, that i can learn on and hone my skills. It will be for range shooting early on, but would like to move onto hunting rabbits etc later with it. To this end which model of either the 452/5 would be best suited? And also, is there any particular model that would be best suited to using both with and without a scope. I'm intent on learning properly with iron sights first and then moving onto a nice scope but I will always be drawn back to a good set of iron sights and the feel of shooting like that. Many thanks in advance!
