Out of te box reliability, probably the best working rifle out there today, buy it shoot it you'll be happy, I agree 100% Sometimes the actions can be a bit "tight" but working it of by hand or taking it to a gunsmith to smoothen a bit is a minor. I have 2 love'em :rockon:
My best always
I bought a CZ 550 American in 375 H&H for my first Cape Buffalo. Worked great and shot great with Federal 300 grain. Dropped the buff with one shot - went about 40 yards. Never had any problems and would highly recommend the CZ. The set trigger was great for sighting in at the range - that way I knew the rifle, scope and ammo were on. Then, any misses were me not the equipment. Less than 1" groups at 100 yds on bench.
Hi Tucker, I have just finished a safari with Jason Morton from CZ and Petersens hunting (Kevin Steele) Jason used a 458 Lott CZ 550, and it is a great rifle , very good for big game , I myself use a 458 Lott and my 375 is a CZ as well, I can vouch that they are good reliable rifles and you will get the same experience out of them, by far they are great value for money spent on them.
Jason dropped his Bull Elephant at 40yards with his 458 Lott CZ and shooting open sights.
