Re: How can you tell if pressure is to high

Hi

I've shot George's 338 Lapua and it's a very nice shooter.

I want the CZ550 action because I can get a McMillan stock (either the Baker or the McHale) and the magazine well is large enough to fit a full length 416 Rigby round (3.9 inches as reported by George) so I can load my 338 Lapua rounds long(er).

I'll use the standard CZ trigger.

I talked to George and the barrels are indeed going to be 34 inch Mike Rock

Dave

Is George going to polish and adjust the trigger for you? What will the trigger weight be?

What kind of groups were you getting with Georges rig? How far did you shoot it?

Do you think the CZ action is stiffer than the Sako TRGS? The long magwell sounds very appealing.

I'm not sure of the barrel lengths, I'd say 28 + brake, I believe he stated 2900fps at one point.

Sorry, I forgot where this question was posted.

George didn't specifically mention he'd work on the trigger but I trust his integrity and I believe if he feels it needs it he'll do it. I don't know what weight the trigger will be, I'm not a very trigger sensative person.

It was shot to 1000 yards and I believe Ian McMurchy was shooting head shots with it on Iron Maidens at 1000 (that's less than 1 MOA easily).

I've never examined the CZ 550 action out of a stock but I have had the Sako TRG-S. I don't know which is stiffer but I know I'm going to give the CZ a try. (George has 2 of them, one in a Baker stock and one in a McHale (McMillan).)

I believe I'll easily get 3100 out of the 34 inch barrel and the Sierra 300.
