Before annotations… and by itself…



If it continues shooting like that we'll become fast friends.

Darn it Gerald....you're going to push me into getting a Scout yet....

Yes, overall that is excellent accuracy, but that last group would have me foaming at the mouth to get back out to see if it was typical of the gun.

The Lilja barrel is in a Boyds Tacticool stock and has a Sightron 36x scope and weighs in at 9.25 lbs. Mine has the straight barrel, the tapered version would logically be a bit lighter.
My 40X and Win 52C are both considerably heavier. This CZ 455 shoots very well but was not exactly cheap to put together - I did end up with the SST version which I love.

We shoot 5 different classes at one of our ranges. 9.25 is not bad. That would fall under our 10.5lb custom bolt sporter class rules. I guess I'm just going to keep playing with the 452 Trainer as is and get it tuned a little better for our 8lb sporter class.

One holers



Best group I took a pic of, sorry for the poor quality, low light.

452 American lefty, Leupold 2-7, Winchester 20gr Gamepoint 50yds. On Target plots it right at .800 MOA. Was aiming at the 10. The rifle will do this with the 17gr V-max as well.



To Mr. Swiss, I like your style! We share the same preference for targets.

Two four shot groups, one with the same 452 and the other with a friend's Savage. He sold the Savage due to his favoritism of the 5mm Rem he now shoots.

Just luck of the draw but my cz 452 silhouette style will shoot good groups with basic federal ammo.The attached groups were shoot at 50 yards with the gun stock out of the box with a Bushnell 4x12 40 mm scope. With good weather and calm winds it will shoot these groups consistently.

I almost gave up…
I got my first 22 about a year ago (CZ455 American with Nikon Prostaff Rimfire). I was able to shoot about 0.80-1.00 in at 50 yd of Caldwell bags that I set up on the top of my ATV using 711B or CCI SV. Even after I bedded the action I probably averaged 0.70 with SK Std+. 9 months into it, I was ready to give up and accept the 0.70. Then I read a post about defective crowns….sure enough mine was a mess too. So I did one more modification (lapped the crown with a brass tool I bough on e-bay). Finally things improved.
This is the first outing after the crown was redone. Caldwell bags set up on the top of my ATV; 50 YD, 15C no wind, SK Std+.



I am a happy camper now. The rifle shoots under 1/2 in most of the time. Thanks goes to all who share their knowledge openly on this great site!

Pretty impressive shooting guys, but it would be helpful to state 1) whether using a scope, and at what magnification, along with 2) distance, 3) ammo, 4) whether using a rest/bag, etc., and in an attempt to keep things in perspective.

I don't shoot too much at paper, but here is one of mine.
This is a small shoot and see target.
Shot from a bipod with a Hawke 8.5-25x42 half mil tactical scope. I don't remember what setting it was on.

And for a lot of folks...that is the most important kind of accuracy....

Mostly head shots I notice.

I didnt measure them but the red is 1 inch,,top one is high .2 to low .3 and bottom was high .4 to low .5

I was actually just checking zero after a range trip that included 45 MOA of elevation and almost 10 MOA of wind,,set the M1 knobs back to zero and shot those targets back to back with over 100 rounds since it was cleaned,,

rifle in its normal settings

Good deal bro. I was feeling pretty good about my groups til I caught a gander of that top group Of yours. That one is pretty astounding IMHO. Anything that shoots a 5 shot group half Moa or less has earned a spot in the safe to me. By the way I wish my 527 didn't have the sst,I am just kidding as I love the thing, because now I want all my 452's to have the sst too.

those are average lookin groups for that rifle,,it will hold less than 2 inches at 300 pretty easy and steel targets can be hit farther than a 223 has the right,,
