Re: Which Smallbore Hunter Pistol?

Nice shooting - is that 100 yards?

Definitely a good price. Thank you for sharing the target pics!

Re: Which Smallbore Hunter Pistol?

Thanks for your recommendations. I decided to spend less on a competition pistol and buy more ammo with the savings. After seeing a couple reviews on the Kel Tec CP33, I got one locally. I've been breaking it in and am pleased with its performance in practice off of a bag. I replaced the bright Wil...

Re: New Sierra 6.5 MK

I use the Ballistics App and it has a built in stability calculator that uses the Miller formula. Using my load data my 1-7 twist has a stability of 1.85 Substituting a 1-8 comes out to 1.41. So Jason, Does this help. Al Foust Thanks, Al. It does help a bit. The standard formula and recommendation ...

If you want to stick with a CZ American get the new 457. It has a 24.8" barrel. I see they are starting to be listed in a couple stores.
Good point - did not know they moved to a longer barrel. :-bd :-bd :-bd

Re: Longer barrel for CZ455 American - worth it?

Are the forearms the same for the CZ 455 American and Varmint? The barrel taper on the American looks more severe than the varmint. The channel for the 455 American must be smaller than the channel for the 20" 455 varmint. The american/varmint barrel is a straight profile, and I don't think would f...

Re: Longer barrel for CZ455 American - worth it?

With the threaded bit on the front of the barrel, you could even screw on a lead weight to the tip of the barrel for standard class. :-?

Longer barrel for CZ455 American - worth it?

It looks like there is a longer, heavier barrel (24") made for the CZ455 that can be purchased from the manufacturer for about $190: https://shop.cz-usa.com/ProductDetail/00215_Cz-455-Varmint-Sr-12x28-24-Barrel-Set-22lr-Blued It's supposed to have some taper to it, unlike the regular 455 varmint bar...

Re: Which youth starter rifle?

That's very good info on the CZ American stock LOP being suited more for persons with shorter arm lengths. Whats the best fix for the trigger? The Annies are here to stay! But I do like to try out what others feel are "very good value". The YoDave kit worked well for me, it's a set of tubular shims...

Re: Which youth starter rifle?

The way everyone praises the CZ it makes me want to sell off my current silhouette rifle and buy a CZ. I better stop visiting this thread before I,did something I may regret. Well... one thing that is not mentioned too often is that the CZ American stock is sized for a fairly petite adult. I've had...

Re: Which youth starter rifle?

I wonder about the Ruger American Rimfire. Is it any good? It has some adjustment, but will it be short enough and have good enough trigger? Just throwing one more idea out for someone with experience to chime in on! Would not recommend the RAR, unless you have a way to replace the barrel. I have o...
