Maybe .300BLK would be a nice chambering for this rifle...

Bought a left hand CZ 527 American when they first hit the market. It's a .223/5.56mm. That rifle has killed dozens of called in coyotes. Today i went to our range to sight in a muzzleloader and spent a couple hours calling coyotes, to no avail.

After the muzzleloader was sighted in i fired five rounds through the CZ 527. Rifle was fired as fast as i could load single rounds and get a good sight picture. Group measures about 1 1/4 inches.

Scope: Leupold FX 3 six power.

Distance: 125 yards.

Wind: From my back steady at 10-12 mph.

Bullet: 53 grain Barnes Triple Shock
Powder: 24.5 grains of IMR 3031
Case: TW 67
Primer: CCI

Nice shooting rapid fire 125 yards with wind with a 223 , CZ's makes accurate and reliable rifles . Keep up the good work. I'm a benchrest shooter using a Reminder 700 in 308 , after seeing what these CZ's can do in 223 , would definitely be my next shooter in 223 when the time comes . Be Well.

Thanks very much.

That CZ 527 may be the most accurate off the shelf rifle i've ever bought. Also own a Remington 700 in .223 with a 26 inch heavy barrel that is more accurate, but that rifle is also very finicky about ammo.

Thankfully, i'm still able to hunt and shoot at age 81.

Except then you would be paying $1/shot as opposed to about .35/shot ($21/box vs $7/box). The great thing about 7.62X39 is that it's very affordable to shoot. 300 Blackout is much more expensive for a knockabout gun.

Your doing good all around shooting and hunting at 81 . What do they say 81 is the new 50 . Keep up the great work . Stay Well.

If i shoot 300blk, we can agree that it’s hand loads only. No one sells it over the counter here.

Pond, I forget what the minimum numbers were you posted as requirements in Estonia (dia, fps, energy, etc). But I do wonder if 6.5 Grendel has caught on over there yet? So far, CZ has ducked and dodged the 6.8SPC, but they do offer 527's in 6.5 Grendel. Also, have you seen any of the larger action CZ rifles there such as the 550 or 557? Those open a whole new world of chambering possibilities.

I think the role of the 527 is to have fun.

10-96:

The hunting regs are simply 9 gram projectile or heavier, 6.5mm or wider.

So a 38spl in a carbine could constitute a hunting round for large game....

Nuts...
