17 Hornet - First Groups

Got my Warne Rings for the CZ 527 (medium) and mounted a Hawke Vantage 6-20x44 - plenty of clearance all around.

Got a chance to get the CZ 527 17 Hornet sighted in and shoot a few groups. I used (5) rounds to sight in and then shot (4) groups of five shots each. Today's work was all done at 50 yards using Hornady V-Max 20 grain factory ammo. I realize this is the first box of ammo through the rifle and I am getting used to the setup but I think this is going to be a lot of fun down the road.

I will attach a PDF with the (4) shot groups @ 50 Yards measurements are edge to edge with .172 subtracted from that measurement.

Group 1 - .498 - .172 = .326
Group 2 - .632 - .172 = .460 (I had a slight aiming point issue on this one)
Group 3 - .420 - .172 = .248 Slightly better
Group 4 - .365 - .172 = .193 Finally getting the hang of it

Yes, I know I need to get some pictures of the rifle as well. *** Now Attached

This rifle has much more capability than it's shooter; but hopefully, in time I will improve. Looking forward to a head to head match between the 527's in 204 Ruger and 17 Hornet @ 100-200 yards.

17 Hornet

I have only shot my 527 in 17 Hornet at 100 yards and it is very accurate also. It prefers the 20 grain ballistic tip bullets. The Hornady factory ammo is really accurate, I found it is hard to improve the accuracy with handloads.

Very nice gun of the OP, I may have to get a setup just like that.

Good info in this thread...glad I found it. I'm considering a 17 hornet this year, the Ruger 77/17 and the CZ 527 make my short list. The 527 is a little more affordable and won't require a trigger job like the Ruger (from what I've heard), but i love the magazine style of the Ruger...and the laminated wood. I think I'd rather have a single shot adaptor that fits flush with the stock rather than the magazine that hangs down. Choices choices. when in doubt get both i supppose
