Ready To Purchase 1 of three choice Varmint Rifles Comments Please

I have been researching for quite a bit now for a new varmint rifle in .223. I have so far narrowed it down to three models:
-CZ 527 Varmint Kevlar
-Tikka T3 Varmint
-Savage 12FV

I was also looking at the remington's but their twist rates are all 1:12 and that limits me to a 55 gr, while the others are 1:8 and 1:9, so I can go up to 77 gr which is better. Now I have recently read some negative revues on one of them regarding customer support and factory control before shipping that was not good and that worries me. I won't say which one. If you all could give your experiences Pro & Cons I would really appreciate it.

Thanks
Andre

Re: Ready To Purchase 1 of three choice Varmint Rifles Comments Please

I would go with an Remington 700 VS it has an HS stock on .

For a little cheeper you could go with an Rem 700 VLS .

I have both in 223 , 22 250 ,243 ,308 7 mm 08 .I like the 22 250 the best hI hunt P Dogs Coyote Crows Hogs Dear with my 22 250 .

My rem 22 250 willl make an Clean Kill at 300 yards No Porblem .
But I will put more in my scope then I have in the Rem 700 22 250 rifle .

A Good scope is just as Important as a Good Rifle .

Just for hunting rifle I own an ruger, Howa , AR 15 Bushmaster Varminter ,Browning ,T C Encore an Contender ,Savage ,CZ, Copper ..

But The Rem 700 Just works for me .


You need to look at all of them an find what works for you .

You are the one that will shoot the rifle .



I just Tryed all The Rifles That I can get my Hands on .

If one of my buddys get an new Rifle In I try to shoot it as much as he will let me .
But On the other hand I will let my buddys try my new Rifles If they want to shoot them .

Re: Ready To Purchase 1 of three choice Varmint Rifles Comments Please

If funds are not in question the Tika is the hands down winner with the savage being the second choice(first if your short on funds)The CZ is a fine enough gun,I realy like the set trigger for doggin but it would be questionable in cold weather with gloves on.It also was probibly the one you herd had cusomer servise issues...Not sure at this point if they even have cusomer service as when I tryed to get a replacement part it was difficult at best!

No experience with the Tikka. The CZ probably has the best quality bbl and an HS stock but has a much weaker action than the Savage. I have not had a CZ (6 and counting) that was not a sub 3/4" gun. The savage has a strong action, poor trigger unless you go for an accutrigger model and pretty good button rifled bbls. If you ever plan to rebarrel the Savage is a do it yourself rifle.
