    No, has nothing to do with the rifle, but the fact the range was reserved for GOP, Gathering Of the Posses cowboy action shooting match all this past weekend, and I couldn't try out my new scope for my CZ 527M!
    OK, this is nothing fancy, a cheap Simmons 3-9 that came to less than $50 shipped. Couldn't afford anything nice, but quite frankly, this scope has nothing wrong with it! That single set trigger flat out rocks this lightweight carbine, fantastic action, rifle worked perfectly the whole time.

    I did boresight to reccomendations, and this is what I got starting of at 25 yards. BTW, each sight in target represents four total 3 shot sight in targets shot at that distance.

    At 25 yards it BETTER be a tight group! Let's adjust and move to 50.

    OK, looks good, like I might be able to make this MOA. Now, out to 75.

    WAITAMINNIT! The purists are screaming, why 75, why not 100? I ran outa dirt, this is the 80 yard range - the long range was busy today, sorry. :-\

    OK, handy dandy measuring tape says 7/8 inch, I can definately live with this....but wait one cotton pickin' minute...what's this?

    Now that's a 3 shot group. Measuring tape says 3/8 inch. Best out of 4 groups fired at 75 yards, gives me some REAL good hope for this little carbine. I got some time off coming up...where do you think I will be?
    TRYING TO GET A SPOT ON THE LOOOONG RANGE! :D:cool:

    I have a 527 varmint in .223 (HS kevlar stock) and I keep coming back to this gun... I want one just like what you have pretty bad... even in the 7.62x39... Not really sure why I want one.. just know that I do. Awesome to see you getting good results with yours... guess the x39 is a pretty accurate cartridge after all..:D. LMAO

    Yep, actually the same loads I use in my vz-58, see the recipe is listed on that last target. I haven't quite started playing with specific loads for this one, and by the looks, I may not have to!

    ArmoredMan, that is a sweet package. medium-bore, moderate power, sweet form factor, bolt-gun accuracy, CZ handling... That's a bug-out rifle, a deer rifle, a plinker. Just awesome.

    How many rounds does that magazine hold?

    Daizee, it's a 5, but I keep asking if we can get a 10 round made.
    If I could get just two things,
    A), a Kevlar or poly stock with a compartment/inlet for two spare 5 round mags,
    and,
    B) adjustable durable rear fixed sight, (note my factory fixed is temporarily off the rifle for right now), as nobody makes and adjustable for it yet,
    then,
    C) this could be one of the best "escapers" rifle for the size and weight. I am very fond of it!

    so cool.
    They don't put that sweet rear battle sight on that thing, like on the .22's??
    It's just *begging* for a nice heavy graduated elevator to 300m.

    I have been to every sight maker I can find, not one makes an adjustable rear sight, and won't unless thier distributors say thier is a demand for them. Dagnabbit.

    Those chepo Simmons scopes get a bad name, but my Brothers Rem 700 .270 has never shot well, untill he tried my 8 point Simmons, now it shoots em all through the same hole! These scopes are very clear for the money.:)

    I can't say anything bad about the scope, and the boresight was pretty darn close to "on". Easy to use glass, and a really easy to use rifle!
    Would you believe I think this is my first "traditional" rifle, bolt action wood stock with a scope? Hmm...

    If you are using FMJ, what's your hunting bullet gonna be? This just seems like a good hunting carbine, I just figured you'd be lookin' a hunting bullet/load to shoot.

    can't read your writing....

    is that 24 gr. or 24.6 gr. of 1680??

    I'm going to have to jot that one down in my notes...

    I haven't loaded any x39 in two years... (guess I've had other guns on my mind)

    24 grains of #1680, and I also use the Hornady soft point 123grain bullet. I have a mould for a 160 grain Lee cast that I haven't tried yet...yet. Got the gas checks and all, this might be a good rifle to use it with.
