I'd take the CZ hands down no questions asked as fast as I could.
I've shot prairie dogs to 600yds with my CZ .204 Ruger routinely and without even thinking about "gee can I make this shot".
Best value in guns out there in my opinion.
+1 There is nothing else in the same class with a CZ. There is price and then there is value. CZ's offer true VALUE. You are getting a quality rifle for the money spent. Can you buy something that will outperform it? Sure. But you will have to spend a whole lot more money. You can beat a CZ rimfire, but you will have to drop the cash for an Anschutz to do it.
The bonus part of a 455 is that it has a switch barrel capability, where the Savage does not. You can buy your 22 mag and, if you so desire, you can buy barrels in 17 HMR and good ol' .22LR and shoot them all from the same rifle based on your needs or whims.
I have a CZ 452 LH LUX. I will still have it the day I pass from this earth!
