Hello all! I don't need to tell you all that even though I already have enough guns to hunt everything on the planet I want more. I've been thinking about a 9.3x62 for years but never got around to it. Recently I purchased VZ-24 Brno Mauser in 8mm and, when taking it apart, noticed that it wasn't the all matching collectors piece I thought it was. The barrel had been replaced which was a bit of a disappointment but whatchagoingtodo right? At the range it didn't perform at all. 20 rounds and multiple iron sight adjustments left the 50 yard bullseye untouched and the outer rings on both sides looking like Swiss cheese, just could not get a group under 3 inches apart. So I was thinking of returning it, but wanted to ask you all if this could be a blessing in disguise. Do you think it would be worth it to look into getting it redone into a 9.3X62 with a re chamber, new barrel, bolt bend etc. or do you think it makes more sense to return it and put the money towards a new CZ 550 9.3x62? I'm really open to ideas, suggestions and opinions here so please let me know! Also, completely unrelated, I'll be putting out this years hunting report soonish, it's just been hectic.
