My son got a Savage Model 10 with an AccuTrigger a few years back. Added a Nikon Monarch 4-16 scope and he can shoot ⅝" groups with my 68grn HPBT handloads I worked up for my long range AR. Shoots consistently and works great. Great package for the price.

.223 v. 5.56mm

I am not clear on the details of the two designations, nor the rifles so marked.

But....I can tell you that I shot some NATO headstamped 5.56mm (55 gr?) from my MiniMauser, and it clocked 3850 fps plus!!! That was enough of that.

That ammo is now relegated to the AR. Accuracy BTW, was terrible in the bolt rifle.

I really like my CZ 527 Kevlar Varmint edition in .223. Super accurate and has a single set trigger.

+1. A CZ 527 American will be my next firearm. The single set trigger pretty much sealed the deal for me. I was thinking about an MVP(definitely like the mags since I'm an AR man) but just could not get past some of its issues- oh and it's a mossburg. I'd like to buy American-ha no pun intended-but these CZ's are just too good.

Mark my choice as a cz 527,
I have one in 223, and one in 6 mongoose, and seriously thinking about one in 6 mm ar, fat rat, predator or similar.

The Ruger American 5.56 has a 1 in 8" twist that will stabilize the heavier bullets used in 5.56 and still not be way too fast for 55 grain varmint bullets.
