CZ = Accurate. I have a CZ P01 Pistol and it is accurate and reliable. CZ's are in general more accurate than competitive weapons, rifles or pistols. The CZ 527 is a small Mauser action. What better pedigree could you ask for?

Typically, I am "guessing" that CZ has optimized (in their view) the rifle for 55 grain or lighter bullets. It is not a military rifle.

Thumbs up The CZ 527 .223 surgical strike

I'm happy to report that I've had my CZ 527 chambered in .223 for four years now, and still find it amazing that it can be written off as anything short of a deadly accurate work of art, not unlike a surgeon's scalpel in the right hands. I've tested it against my Remington 700 and Weatherby .308s, my Kimber .308 and even my Colt AR-15. None of my rifles are slouches and all shoot respectable groups, and all are equally effective tools for hunting deer and wild hogs. But my CZ 527 shot circles around all of those rifles. It shoots subMOA standards out to 300 yards. In the Texas Hill Country, I don't generally make longer shots. I also tested numerous ammo options, and bullet weights for the perfect round, and found it liked the American Eagle 50 gr. Varmint Tipped ammo. I've shot several three and four shot "keyholes" in 100 yard targets. And here's the kicker, it is surgical in it's accuracy (w/ Leopold scope), and have harvested any number of smaller to medium-sized wild hogs, up to a 400 pounder, and more than two whitetail bucks. One shot, all dropped where they stood, usually with neck or head shots. The bonus with this carbine, it is short enough to be handy inside a truck, light enough to be easy carrying, and powerful enough to drop deer sized game with one well placed shot... or make a neck shot on a turkey at 110 yards. I refuse to hunt with any other rifle, for no other's I've tried can neatly do what CZ does. From what I understand, I'm not the only one who likes these weapons.

Cz 527

I also have a cz varmint but it is a earlier 1/12 twist and I am amazed at it's preference for flat based 40 grainers to boat tails of the same weight. Like others have said it is a laser and puts everything else I have to shame.

The CZ 527 is a great Rifle at a reasonable price. I have only good things to say about mine. I also Love the CZ 452 Rimfire. they all are top notch Rifles, and lots of bang for the buck.
The CZs that I have are Left to Right 527 full Stock .223 rem with a 1:12 twist BBL, 527 .22 Hornet, and a CZ 452 in 22lr. As you can tell, I like full stock Rifles.............Lew

Thanks from Stevep51d

I have been eyeballing one of these in 7.62x39. At the local academy sports, anyone have one in this clambering? If so how does it shoot cheap steel case ammo?

On the CZ website it says cheap steel case ammo is what these rifles are made for. At under 6 pounds and shooting the cheapest center fire ammo there is I'm really considering one for a all purpose truck/ plinking rifle. All the reviews I have read say close to 1 inch groups at 100 yards with dirt cheap Russian surplus. I might sell my 17 hmr and by one of these, cheaper to shoot and a lot more bang for your buck ammo wise.
