I can.
One needs proper gauge (depth gauge) to know which shims (spacers) to use.
I have proper gauge. Mine reads in mm so I convert to inches. It works.

Btw, as far as I know lilja is only one supplying shims for headspace setup with hm2 barrels on CZ 455/457.
The shank of barrel is intentionally cut for too long a fit by lilja, hence spacers will get barrel shanks out some for proper headspace.

Here’s good video done by someone else. I recommend setting to .043” headspace. The depth gauges can be bought. Not very expensive.

Below is pic of my depth gauge. Mine is not digital.

I used one of the earlier generation trigger sticks on a 10 day PG hunt in South Africa in 2015.

It was very handy and really improved my ability to get bullets on target quickly from field positions.

Even used it while sitting on the ground...as you showed is possible.

For ticks, I mix up 2 oz. of Martin's 10 % permethrin in a gallon of water, then spray all outer clothing thoroughly and let it dry. It's good for two weeks, even through washings. Usually, I'll do at least three sets of hunting clothes at a time. I've done this for over a decade and only found a couple of dog ticks crawling on me during that time period. I use this same spray during our spring turkey season and it works then, too. For mosquitoes, I use eucalyptus since deet makes me sweat. Remember a mosquito repellent called "6-12"? That was a great varnish remover from gun stocks! I'll have to try that Cutter's Skinsation since it sounds like a winner. This time of year with morning temps in the upper 50s/lower 60s, mosquitoes are few and far between, often not needing any repellent. I've got to make an adjustment on my CZ 453 American since the bolt tends to come out when trying to chamber another round. This Rimfire website has some info on how to do that. Having both the CZ 453 Varmint and American as well as the CZ 452s in these same models makes alternating rifles a bunch of fun!

If we presume both models shot equally accurate. I would take 457 all day long. As long as trigger spring is changed out. Question is will my 457 equal or beat my two 455 models.
I canít say yet.

So a nonanswer really.

AFternoon hunt.
Bagged 2.
Both grays. I male, 1 female.
One headshot.
Other shot above shoulder.
2 shots fired.

Brings career harvest to 51,384.
Season total to 63.

Btw, that second squirrel would have been a real tough shot with 22 lr. Doable but mighty tough.

Thanks for the info.
Guess I need to get some supplies and make me up some of that potion.

Squirrel1...I fiddled with the various adjustments on the CZ 453 trigger as per video information and got the bolt to stay in when recycling it, but the trigger pull is just a tad bit stouter than I like but I've adjusted it as much as possible. The single-set trigger is just right. Now to the gun range to see if the POI has remained the same, then to the squirrel woods tomorrow morning. It rained overnight, so slipping from one hickory tree to the next should be much improved. I love this time of year when it's cool in the morning and the squirrels are hulling nuts. It should be good hunting for the next month.

Why do you prefer the 457? I have 3 452's so I dont know about the 457.
Thanks. James
