Cz carbine 223



Log in to see fewer ads
Just got back from the farm here's a three-shot group at 200 yards. It's the group at 7 a clock all the rest of the bullet or from the other side poking out you'll see three in the orange Target. Orange Target is 2 inches. I can do better it's wearing a $50 scope . This little gun can shoot 68 grain 55 grain won't shoot 62 grain won't shoot 68 grain will shoot 77 grain won't shoot, thank you thank you

Impressive. What $50 scope are you using? You say that 55gr does or does not perform well? I haven't shot mine yet. All I have is some older 55gr remanufactured BlackHills .223.

Bushnell off of eBay and no only 68 grain bullets do well at all 55 looks like a shotgun pattern

I had an older Carbine in .223 with the 1:12 twist that shot really well and only went down the road after I got a Kevlar Varmint, wish I'd kept the Carbine now. Nicely done.

Those CZ carbines are true woods walkers . . .

. . . they made a good choice selecting those cartridges. One for big game, the other for varmints. Both popular and easy to find too - nothing wrong with that.

That is fine shooting Basrem and bluzman - well done ! You are doing it right.

The 527 is a heck of a rifle. I would like to see the 6.5 in the carbine.

Well, I was going to start a new thread, but since this one was so handy I will add my comments here for the 527 Carbine in 223 Rem. Yupper, I was offered a very reasonable price on a new 527 Carbine (and I had some gift cards) so I added a 4th 527 to my collection. All are good shooters out of the box IMHO.

I attempted some range time today, but it turned out very nasty cold & windy, however did get my latest 527 acquisitions sighted in (a American 221 Fireball & the Carbine 223 Rem). The Carbine is a 1:9" twist & I love the feel & balance, initially mounted a Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40.

I experienced results similar to yours just testing a few on-hand, factory rounds; the Carbine liked Fiocchi 40 gr. VMax & 50 gr. BT, Nosler Varmageddon 55 gr BT, but it did not like the Federal 55 gr. V-Shock or Black Hills 77 gr Match Moly. I also tried a few rounds of Hornady 68 gr Match which were in between the good & the bad.

Range conditions being a big factor I still feel this will easly be a sub-MOA rifle when I narrow down the ammo. I plan to use this rifle for hunting, so am hoping for a good 55 grain load as I have the 32, 40, & 50 gr covered with other 527's.

The 527 American 221 Fireball also did well - only had Nosler Varmageddon 40 gr. rounds for that but was very pleased with the results. I feel it will be a sub-MOA rifle as well. those 527's.
