Re: follow up on CZ accuracy problems

Perhaps you should change the title to " cast bullet accuracy trouble with CZ" . Sounds like it's really not the rifle at all. Pretty sure it is not my loads as I have also shot a lot of jacketed bullets through it just mention the factory loads... but to update you I just got an e-mail from CZ tod...

Re: follow up on CZ accuracy problems

I think the problem is the fast twist with cast bullets. I have 3 boxes of factory jacketed ammo to test. If they work I want to test cast at a low velocity low pressure like around 1100 fps. just under the speed of sound. maybe the lower pressure and speed will help. All I really need for power is ...

Re: follow up on CZ accuracy problems

Of my big problems is i am never completely satisfied with my shooting, i always want the next group to be better than the last. It is just fun to try to shrink the groups a bit by trying a different bullet, powder or whatever. The fun comes from improvement. I think i will try the lyman 311284. i w...

follow up on CZ accuracy problems

Last March I posted on the lack of accuracy with my CZ m-527 Blk Out. To sum up I couldn't get it to group with anything I tried. The first thing I did after making the screws were all tight and the barrel was not rubbing on anything was to make a chamber cast. This rifle had no leade into the rifli...

Re: What mold are you guys using?

ok i was a bit harsh on Lee moulds, because of my personal experience. now I think those of us who started with iron moulds possibly use them in a fashion that is too rough on them. lee uses the cheapest easist to machine aluminum that is to machine but it is flat too soft to hold up anywhere like a...

Re: What mold are you guys using?

Why is the Lee mold so bad? I use Lee for my pistol casting and have zero issues with them. I haven't bought a .308 mold yet but have a Lee in my Amazon shopping cart. Thanks I have been casting bullets for almost 50 years, that doesn't make me an expert as I still am learning. now to answer your q...

Re: Frustrated with my CZ 527!!!

I need to check and see if mine will feed from the magazine, so far i have shot it single shot at the range. I have just gotten in the habit of single loading at the range. it seem seems simpler than taking the mag. out and putting it back in. that said i want to be able to use the mag. if i want to...

Re: accuracy with cz 527 or should i say lack of accuracy

yes, you are correct that shows the correct chamber spec. except for the chamber on my rifle is not sloped like it is in your drawing. it is straight sharp without a gentle slope. i made the chamber cast to see if it was correct or not and i assure it is not like your drawing at all. the drawing sho...

Re: accuracy with cz 527 or should i say lack of accuracy

i tapped a lead slug and made a nice cast of the throat and learned a lot. I am going to pretend some shooters don't know how to make a slug like this.. melt a fired case full of lead, shorten case a bit put into chamber close bolt, put the lead wire down the barrel and tap it to make an image of th...
