I hope that's all it is. Keep us updated.
With Wolf or which loads?
Im a happy camper now. Scope is fine thank god. Going for a 100 was a little tricky a storm was blowing in. Last 2 mags at a 100 i did ok. I didn't tweak the scope. I'll do that on a calm day. On the BX trigger i love it. Group was with Winchester 555 bulk ammo. Just at 25 yards on account of the wind.
The 527 also comes in an optics-ready, synthetic stock model. That's what I have and it is a joy to shoot. The set trigger helps me to get some great groups with it.
Ditto for me, except that I have a CZ, not a Howa. My rifles shoot better with hollow points than with FMJ. I've made up some handloads with Lapua FMJ bullets and even those don't group as well as cheap Wolf hollow points.
I have a CZ in 223, the 527 is a really nice rifle if you can get your hands on one.
My Howa does OK with the wolf hollow points, but really likes the 124gr Red Army stuff. I picked up some 123gr SST bullets to give a try at reloading for it. People seem to like them, hoping they work well.
Haven't chronographed it yet, but it likes this ammo.
Yep! I actually put three rounds into that one pigeon! I forgot to film the first two hits that took the top half !
On that last shot, I decided to see how long it would take to hit record, let go of the phone, get back on the rifle, push the safety off, adjust POA , and make the shot. It was just under 10sec total. Definitely not competition speed, but I think I can improve that with some more practice.
Hard to go wrong with any of those three, I have the Howa in 7.62x39 with a Boyds stock, the CZ American in a factory walnut stock, and a Ruger American in 6.5CM, and it would be impossible to decide which I prefer. They each have their strengths and weaknesses (mostly strengths). Of the factory Tupperware stocks, I like the Ruger a whole lot more than the CZ or Hogue overmold that Howa uses.
With movement like that you have a mounting problem somewhere.
Glad to hear that getting the scope mount sorted out seems to have solved your issue.
