I've owned two, a Charles Daly mini-Mauser and a CZ527. The use is as a walking varminter. I'd worked up a load for the Daly, which is actually a Zastava Mauser, & got it to be an MOA gun. Which is really all that I expect from a light barrel firearm.
However, after participating in the Charles Daly thread here, I found out the gun is one of 130 complete LHB mini-Mauser's imported into the U.S. under the Charles Daly name. I've written to KBI/Daly requesting a letter of provenance for the gun. Always nice to have down the road.
And, the gun has some pretty nice wood too.
Therefore, I have kinda retired the Daly & bought the CZ527. I'm still in the process of load development for it, but near completeing the process. In fact, I'll be going to the range later today to prove the load that certainly seems to work the best. Then I might fool around with some seating depths, but I really can't complain about a gun that shoots .6's.
Hope this helps, 900F

Savage makes a few models in .223 for a southpaw.
Just look for left handed models in the listings.
I've got a Mark II left hand .22LR and really like it.
