    It's a cz 527 American chambered in 223 with a Nikon pro staff 4-12x40 scope with a Caldwell bipod.

    Just a heads up about that bipod. It will fall apart quickly. I also had put one on a CZ527 .223 Varminter. That lasted about a month. Bought a Harris, much better. You'll love that rifle!!!! I have one w/ a Sightron SII6.5-20x42mmAO. It is quite the tack driver.

    Do they make guns like this in 5.56 so you can use that or 223?

    I recently discovered CZ. Awesome guns! I bought a 453 in 17 HMR. There is also a used CZ 550 in 308 at the gun shop with a $1,100 Leupold scope and a Harris bi-pod on it for $950. Very well taken care of. I took the wife over to see it, but I don't think it's going to end up under the tree on Tues.

    What size groups do you get at 100 yards with it ?

    I'm not sure if they do or not. That sounds like a really good deal for that gun.

    I have the 527 American sporter barrel with a maple stock. It has a 1:12 twist and tolerates 55 grain but loves the 45 grain bullets. Took me a little while to get used to the set trigger. I blew a few rounds because I touched it a little too hard.

    Yup, that's what I thought, too.

    Same here. That trigger is almost too light. When I clean it, I'm going to put some weight back on.

    That's a nice rifle. I think you're gonna have to tell us about the predators it gets over in the Hunting forum!

    CZ uses a CIP chamber. Safe for 5.56 or .223. Using 5.56 will not void the warrentee as it was designed for it.

    Depends on What I shoot out of it. PMC bronze 55gr FMJ will shoot 1.5". Hornady 55gr BT's shoot 1/2". Coyote 55gr sp shoot 3/4". Handloads w/ Speer 52gr are better then Hornadys, so are Barnes 53gr and 62gr sierra are about the same. Still have a bunch of different bullets to try. I love the single set trigger. Using it in 2 stage is fine, the single set takes it to a different level. Just takes some getting use to.

    Interesting. What is a CIP chamber? Does CZ state that in their manual?

    OK. So CIP is kinda like SAAMI around here.

    Yes, exactly what the links state. The Problem is there is no one standard world wide. In Europe, Military arms are the standard. Civilians don't have our freedoms, so all chambers are CIP for Nato and European union countries. I talked w/ CZ when I bought mine to make sure. Perfectly fine.
