Finally Got a 527 Varmint ordered



Log in to see fewer ads
I finally got a CZ 527 Varmint in 17 Hornet ordered. Should be here next week. Already got a scope and rings just need to find out what weight of bullet is the most accurate out of this combo.

I know I have my choice between 15.5 and 20 grain ammo from Hornady. I am reading both work well. Just would like to know what is most accurate. I know each gun likes different things, just don't want to buy to much of one that does not shoot well.

Mine loves Hornady 20gr and shoots the 15.5 well too. I'd only shoot the 15.5 if your state law says you must, otherwise it's a ballistic dog.

Only way you'll really know is to shoot both and see which shoots best in your gun. There is just no way of knowing any other way.

I have two CZ 527 Varmint model 17 Hornets. One of them shoots factory ammo and my reloads pretty near the same and the other one doesn't shoot factory ammo quite as well but shoots my hand loads the best of anything in either one.

Factory barrels are always somewhat of a crap shoot, you just never know what you're going to get, and occasionally you get one that is stinker. But, much more often than not, the little CZ 527's in 17 Hornet shoot pretty well.

Also, CZ coats these things from the factory with kind of a thick syrupy protective layer oil so I'd recommend giving the barrel a good cleaning before you shoot it and don't freakout when the first two patches come out looking black. Can't speak for others, but all of the different CZ 527's I've had, the first few patches came out looking all kinds of nasty.

As mentioned above buy some of each and try them in your rifle that way you know for sure which load is preferred. Secondly are you required to use the NTX lead free in your area? If not then the 20 grain bullets are probably cheaper.

You are going to enjoy the CZ 527 in 17 Hornet . . . I have only shot the Hornady 20 gr factory ammo in mine thus far . . .

It showed up Friday afternoon, when the sun ever decides to come out in Indiana I will take better pictures outside. It has some great looking wood that does not show up with the available lighting. I decided to go with the Warne high scope rings to make sure I have plenty of bolt clearance, and it worked out great . Scope is a Vortex 6x24x50 Strike Eagle .

Hopefully I will get to sneak out later this week to the range and see how it shoots.

Joelmark sir I can't see the wood on it...when you get a chance could we see a picture out in the sun so the wood grain will shine through. So far how do you like it ?
