    Nice rifle! I should have stated I like long barrel guns. They balance everything out. Yes, the barrel gets caught in the brush but if it's thick I carry the gun by my hip.

    My CZ 550 in 500 Jeffery took some tweaking, but it functions flawlessly now (slow, fast, upside down, etc.), and has always shot sub .5 MOA. It's my favorite rifle now. Treat her with a bit of respect though or she'll hurt you.

    Not my best three shot group:

    Finally a bruise I got soon after receiving the rifle caused by shooting 15 full power loads (570g at 2410 fps) without a shoulder pad or lead sled off of the bench in a T-shirt. This was the next day, it actually looked worse two days later lol. I learned to treat my "baby" with more respect after this. It's now my favorite rifle to shoot offhand.

    I treat her with respect now and she's never hurt me again. I spun on a feral hog in a thicket and shot him at 8' between the eyes in less than a second. Never felt the recoil. I do use a lead sled and a padded jacket from the bench though.

    Nice CZ is on the list but I think I'll keep her in a little smaller Cal.

    I have a CZ 550 9.3x62 synthetic stock: very, very accuracy,stetcher !:D but not enough heavy ... out of the box : modif : now it's OK.
    A problem with the action : it would "cut" the base of the cartridges ...:mad: Return to the Importer and now it's OK.
    Now I love it.;)

    I had a CZ 550 in 9.3x62 and it was a fantastic rifle. The only reason I got rid of it was to get a left handed Ruger M77, which I promptly had re-chambered to 9.3x62.
