Re: CZ 550 Varmit

Well I took the action out of stock and relieved the stock where the barrel was touching and reasembled. I shot it off my pickup tool box at 100 yds and the group was good under 1moa. I will work up some loads and get it down on a bench. I am satisfied that the gun will shoot fine now.

Re: CZ 550 Varmit

I have owned my CZ 550 Kevlar Varmint 22-250 for 3 years now. Its my go to rifle. I have shot over 25 coyotes(one at 438yards), few hundred prarie dogs, 8 deer, couple antelope and few other critters.

My best results have been the 55 gr Nosler ballistic tip with 34 grains of Varget. Nice groups!

During the break in I did end up having to let the barrel soak for 8 hrs and brush it few times. The accuracy wasnt what I new it could be. This removed all the gunk from the factory as well as the copper. After this it shot like a different rifle. Was very impressed.

I did try 40 gr bullets but did not get great accuracy.

I will agree with most on the trigger issue. Set trigger is great but that means you do sacrifice on the regular trigger pull. Hope you have great results with yours...
