With that many points, I could live without the venison! :D

The Swede is a noted penetrator -- hard to do better inside of 200 yards when you think about accuracy, lethality, and recoil.

Chasing accuracy is most fun by sticking with a few rifles and shooting them a lot! You might not be the limiting factor, I don't know your skill level. For me, shooting the CZ 452 in 3 positions,...

Because of the chamber chipping issue (as noted above), I've never been interested in the T/C semi-autos.

I'd keep the CZ 452 --- they will last lifetimes and only grow in value. :t

My lottery rimfire would be a BRNO 3S.

For a centerfire, I suppose a Blaser K95 Grade 6 chambered in 6.5x55 Swede. :)

Neither of mine are NIB, but that's nice to know.

I still have this one, in 22WMR with a Burris 1.75-5x20 scope.

With mine, I've put more than 1000 rounds though it, no leading issues, and I have NOT cleaned the barrel with anything other than a couple of passes with a boresnake. After about 200 rounds, it...

Well, that is still a very cool set of antlers, and you have a good memory of the hunt. But the harvest allowed you to learn something, and then pass that on to others. For that, I think the...

Since we see so few 3S rifles, it's hard to judge whether or not the matte finish is typical or not. I'd have to see or hear from a few folks that have on to judge.

But as gr8guns stated, even a...

I have to agree with the very knowledgeable young lady, which, over time, I I have learned to listen to carefully.

I would agree that CZ rings are the "cleanest" fit on CZ rimfires. Burris and Warne rings work well, hold zero, but often have a gap that makes them look not so good. But if you want a really clean...

Yeah, there is nothing "light" about the 550 action, it's as heavy-duty as they come. I expect in 100 years, there will be a lot of rebarreled 550 actions still shooting.

Well, I'd agree that any round can be accurate in a well-made rifle.

I like the Swede because it is soft recoiling, which means that a day at the range shooting 60 rounds, I don't even think about...

The 5906 is a classic. Heavy and perhaps "clunky" in today's world, but I think it's got style and you can't beat an all steel automatic. But the gun isn't useful unless you can carry it around...

My suggestion is to keep shooting the rifle with your favorite ammo only. And don't clean it at all. I bet your groups will shrink.

And posting every shot, that is great info. I think you are a...
