452 cz fs

CZ 452 FS on a nice fall day 2013 doing what they were made for. Small game hunting with a very nice handling rifle and great accuracy with it. Fitted with a 2-7 Leupold. Did not see any turkeys that day but these two came walking by in the big woods after the hunters down low ran them out of the fields.

Good looking rifle, nice countryside, and an excellent brace of birds. Perfect.

Having reached Geezerhood I'm not sure this much fun with new Rim-Fires is ok without adult supervision?
Be that as it may it keeps me outta the brides hair so it's all good, at least to me!
Right before the gophers went down and elk was in the air I saw a CZ 455 Varmint in .22 WMR that I didn't even know they made, the muzzle mic's an .866.
Switch barrel, who knew??



In time of confusion such as this there was only one thing to do..."Buy It" .
Sighted it in after a quick break-in regimen and hit out to the field to pop at least one rodent with it before the season ended.
As luck would have it a real dumb one was still out so he's now out of the gene pool .



The rifle came with an unusually decent trigger and broke at a crisp, consistent 2 lb.
A little tweaking, some "Moly-Slide" and now it's right at 1 1/2 lb and I like it real well!

First range day after break-in with a bit a breeze to figure I fired a few groups.
Don't shoot to bad, Hornady 30gr V-Max's at 100 yards.



It all came together rather easily and the .17 HMR switch barrel shoots a fair bit better than the .22 Mag, bummer !
Reflected on that for about 7 minutes and got to wondering just how good a .22 Mag could really shoot ?
Got my first in the late 50's and always loved the little slugger. However as many fans have, I've always felt it was a bit of an underachiever in the accuracy dept.
So living in Montana and having contemplated on it for about 7 minutes I came up with an answer!
Call Danny Lilga up the road a piece. Just so happens he had a match .22 Mag stainless ready to bolt on! "Send it"!!
Ordered it one morning and had it the next day, great neighbors are a treat!



The whole enchilada.



Another go at the break-in routine and after a bit a sight in and some right to left breeze I shot about the best 5 shot 100 yard .22 Mag group I ever shot.
That's even counting the one I yanked low outta the group too .



50 yard 5 shot groups got boring fast!





"WAY" to much outta me Coffee all day! Found some ammo today so I'm pumped!
Think I'll set here for a few months and wait till the gophers come up.
A little greeting committee so ta speak .
Buncha nice looking weapons here guys, really got me fired up.
Hope I didn't Hi-Jack yer thread!

Ha, a new word to use around friends...."geezerland". I like it.

That's a nice CZ. I personally feel the WMR is under rated in the accuracy department if used with good modern ammo and that folks just assume it's an inherently inaccurate round. It's almost one of those "urban legend" things that folks repeat after hearing. I guess I'm a little biased though, because I got one (452 Lux) that out of the box is very accurate....easily does sub MOA at 100 yards.

Congratulations on that nice gun...looks like a keeper.

A custom Kimber M82A. This action was rebarreled with a Bernie Morrison medium-heavy 23" barrel (it mics .69" at the muzzle). I had the chamber cut as tight as possible and cut to allow the 33-gr. Remington V-max bullet to just touch the rifling upon closure of the bolt. You can see the 3-panel checkered bolt handle and the custom bottom-metal work with a floorplate to hide the magazine. It has an engraved Jerry Fisher grip cap and Neidner butt plate. All the metal was rust-blued. The stock is a decent (although not really exceptional) grade of fiddleback Claro, with 22 lpi wraparound checkering. I had the trigger thoroughly worked on so that it now gives a consistent release at 6 oz. The mounts are custom bases (as can be seen in the 2nd picture) with Warne rings. The scope is the Leupold 3-9 rimfire with AO. Its finish is not a perfect match with the rust-blued metal, but is about as close I could get.

The rifle does shoot the 33-gr. Rem ammunition very well--at least as well as I had expected from a .22 WMR--producing about 1 MOA or better groups, or .45" at 50 yds., 1.0" at 100 yards. Other ammunition not quite as good, although I haven't shot it in many years, and some of the newer high-grade .22 WMR may shoot well too. I'll have to try it with some of the Hornady, Federal, or Fiocchi ammunition with jacketed bullets.

I guess that answers the question. Can you kill a Hog with a .22 Mag. That should put that old Thread to rest. Thank you.

AMT .22 AUTOMAG: has a ton of work done on it to get it shooting/ejecting properly, but it is a great shooter now: grandkids LOVE it.
CeraKoted it because it's a shooter, not a collector, and going to grandkids one day soon.
