I agree with you.
Nice story Jon.
Great rifle, congrats!!
Just got back from SA. Was using my CZ 550 9.3X62. 286gr. Nosler Part. Bang Flop!!
Nice looking 9.3! I just picked up a CZ550 American in the same chambering.
Thank you. Sorry haven't been on the site for a bit (yes I hang my head in shame).
In answer to your questions, I picked it up at Switzer's Auction in Bancroft, ON. They have some pretty neat stuff come across there fairly frequently. Got into a bit of a bidding war with a guy that lives about 40 mins NW of me. We were both bidding on ZG 47's in 8x57 & 9.3x62. He got the 8x57 and I the 9.3.
Would have liked to been in Jon's shoes...wow that's pretty cool!
I think you got the best of that deal. I'd sooner have the 9.3 any day.
Agreed. 8x57 was in really nice shape though. Can't have them all
I love the BRNO action over any other
+1 on your great score on that rifle!
Update. Well I finally got to shoot the ol' girl. After mounting and sighting in a new scope, the last three shots cloverleafed 0.30" at 100yds! Wind was blowing at 40mph on a diagonal from behind me as well. I was impressed! Load was using 285gr PRVI SP's. My CZ 550 9.3x62 will do the same with 285gr Lapua MEGA's as well.
You’ve got a shooter, congrats!
The PRVI SP’s are great rounds. Picked up six boxes for practicing at around $1 a round and was very pleased with the performance
8 x 68 you have made a very good choice This is a great rifle.
