CZ 455 Varmint on order
« on: September 03, 2017, 10:41:56 AM »
have a CZ200S PCP rifle its awesome.  Are the Rimfire barrels as good?  Also ordered the the CZ target trigger group and a .17 HMR  spare barrel.  Pointers and pitfalls to avoid when installing them.

my CZ PCP are the least projectile fussy barrels I own.  I hope that carries over to their rimfires.  What LR rounds should I be ready to test.

My 452 rimfire barrels do pretty well with mid grade SV ammo. SK Std, Tac-22, Eley target and Geco all wok pretty well out to 50 yards. I'd start in that price range. Some report great results with HV ammo, also.

The spec for the grub screws on the barrel is pretty high. Most recommend around 35in/lbs. No more than 25 in/lbs on the action screws or you can crush the wood ,and bend the bottom metal.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.
