So how many Duplicate rifles/calibers do you have??



Log in to see fewer ads
Ok guys I have 14 CZ rifles now with many of the same calibers like 22mag and 17hmr...and as far as center fire cartridge goes I have 17 Hornet, 22 Hornet, 223 Rem, 308 WIn. and two Rem 222s...one in American and the other in a Varmint.

So the 64 dollar question for me is: Do you guys have duplicate CENTERFIRE calibers and if so why ?? are they different style of rifles like I have (American & Varmint) or like a (AR and bolt action) or because they are different brands.

If you do have the same caliber in the same style rifle what is the reason for that...like shooting at GH or at a PD town and need to allow one rifle to cool down while shooting the other or you love it so much you just want a second.

Where this is all going is: there is a another 22 hornet I can get if I really want to get it...am I am wondering if I really need to buy a second one.

Here is my Home made CZ 527 FS in 22 Hornet


and it shoots like this...I changed scopes and did a quick sight in.


So if you had a rifle that shoots the 22 Hornet like mine does would you buy a second one...if so why ??

I have so many rifles I won't be able to wear any of them out. I still have three unfired. CZitis must be getting worse I am thinking about the Ruger 204 and 6.5 Grendel and no I am not trying to catch up with GMD1950

thanks for your input and advice...I am lost and trying to find my way...lead me.

one last thing; a 222 is not a 223 even though they are close...so I don't count them as duplicates.

I have a couple of 22-250s and three 223s all in different rifles. I would have to count the 22s and I just added another. The only two of those are modified 10/22s and quite different.

I think the OP was asking about Centerfire duplicates. If it was rimefire I don't want to tell!

I've got 35 to 40 in 7.62x54r, all milsurp, all Finnish. Obviously I collect them.
Eight or 10 Swede Mausers in 6.5x55, and a TikkaT3x. Collect the Swedes and deer hunt with the Tikka.
Four ARs in5.56x45, all setup in different ways, long barrel, short barrel, fixed stock, collapsible stock, red dot, iron sighted, scope; and a Tikka T3 in 223 (close enough to 5.56). ARs are for HD, hunting and just plain ol' plinking, the Tikka is my main yote rig.

Only the 223/556 is duplicated and the least accurate one is for sale on consignment locally.

.22 at least 10 different rifles and 3 handguns
556 three
308 four
9mm six
45 two
I think for me I may find several different Firearms I like in the same caliber. Some might be bolt action someway be semi-auto ,so for instance I have an M14 308 and a GA Precision 308 bolt action love them both.

It's not a question of need........ it's a matter of want. Life's short, play hard.

have four 9mm pistols , not that I am a 9mm fan at all , just the particular guns came in that caliber .

then there's the Ruger vaquero 44 mag and model 92 24" barrel in 44 mag , because they could/ can shoot a variety of lower powered 44 cal cartridges or reloads . the rifle does not really like anything less than 44 mag length cartridges really nor does it really care for non jacketed lead bullets . the ruger does not care for the ejector marks the 92 leaves on the cases . so it was kinda a wash

would I duplicate any caliber I have now in the future ?

considered a 38 special rifle in a lever or pump , but I fear the 44 mag experience all over again.

204 ruger ? maybe if a nice 527 varmint came along .

243win? ones enough for now

260rem? great cartridge in a nice gun one is enough, besides deer season would be over by the time I decided which one to take

9.3x62 ? 550FS is quickly become a favorite brush / stalking rifle , one is enough.

223 ? I can see a 527FS and or a LUX to go with my 527 varmint , right now the caliber these guns are available in I have any interest in .

Several AR 223/5.56 with some differences.

Several Winchester 94s and Marlin 336s mostly .30-30,but a couple in .35. All different, but just a little.

Too many Swedish Mausers in 6.5 x 55. All a little different with several being sporterized not too badly by Bubba. They were cheap and I was a sucker for them.

Ithaca 37s if you want to get into shotguns.
