although I'm new to the forum, I enjoy shooting rimfires. A buddy had an incredible shooting Anschutz that we were able to split bullets on an axe blade at 50 yards. Then he bought a 452 b/c the Anschutz barrel was to big for the rifle club matches he shot in. The CZ was even better, but he wouldn't part w/ the higher $ gun, although I tried my best. I bought a 453 in .22 and it is certainly minute-of-squirrel head at 50 yards and beyond. I shoot Eley subsonic hollow points. I haven't known the rifle to miss, although I do on occasion. My best shot was slightly over 110 yards. I have upgraded my daughter's arsenal to a 452 Style and can't wait to compare the two.
