Don't forget you're going to need a quality scope to dress her up in.

And that will open a whole new can of worms.

All taken care of!! I have the scope rings from the last CZ, and I already have my Burris XTR 312 50mm.

I think that will do nicely!!

I think you have made a good choice, assuming that the bore is still solid. I really love my CZ550 V in 308. With good handloads, it is just a magnificent rifle. I am not particularly recoil sensitive, but the heavy barrel 308 recoil is not unpleasant.

Good luck and many happy years with your rifle.

I had the seller meet me at a gun shop that I know has a set of 7.62, 7.63 etc bore gauges and had the guys behind the counter check.

They said that the bore was solid: nearly new type solid.

Happy days!!

I never shoot a deer that is running. But I will kill a coyote running at 300+ yds (not necessarily the first shot...they get twice as fast and half as big whe they turn it on).

I have killed many deer at 300+ yds with my 308, all standing still and most dropped in their tracks while the rest ran lest than 50 yds. I shoot high shoulder shots and use Hornady 150gr SST with no passthrough.

Because of experience in coyote hunting, I would not hesitate to shoot a standing deer at 300 yds with a 223, but would shoot it either high shoulder or low neck. I would not attempt this shot unless I had a 3-point brace: bottom and side brace along with right elbow brace (right handed).

Hunting depends on your skill, the kind of brace you have, and experience. The rifle and caliber are mostly secondary.
