Been looking hard at the CZ 452 Varmint. Brooks has a trigger spring kit and also a dovetail to weaver conversion base.
The Super 16x sounds like a good idea, dang I never considered shooting 22LR to 600 yards. That sounds fun.
I have heard about high power shooters practicing with 22 long rifle at 200 yards on certain targets, this is somehow supposed to simulate shooting a centerfire at 1000 yards. Don't know if that really works, but I bet its still challenging.
This ever climbing price in bullets has me looking more at rimfires for practice.
I'm with Jerry on this one. I have exactly what he is suggesting. CZ 452 Varmint, brooks trigger job, and Bushnell 3200 10X scope. It is very accurate and I have lots of fun lobbing bullets 300+ yards at ground squirls. One thing with the 22 is that you spot your own shots.

That'll be my long range practice gun for the backyard. That should get me accustomed to dialing for elevation and windage. With a longer barrel it should be pretty quiet. The scope was cheaper than the gun, but not so for the barrel.
Who and how are you having the barrel fitted? Is going to be a re-pin job or threading the reciever? Is threading what threads are you using? I've been conemplating this but the thin reciever wall has me in a quandry.
