I finally got a fairly decent day to shoot the CZ 453.

I took some SK match grade and some Wolf performance ammo. Set up on my bench at 50 yrds , using the bipod and a Protektor rear bag.

I bore sighted , thru the bore , with naked eye, with bolt out of gun, set scope to center of the bore sight.

Loaded 5 rnds of SK, fired 1st shot on 1st target, was about 2 1/2" high an1/2" right.
Set scope zero to that hole and fired the next 4 shots. Thats Target # 1, using SK ammo at 50 yrds, with right to left wind , about 10 mph.
I tried moving the scope back to center , but ran out of MOA adjusting , I notice the rings/mounts are slightly crooked, Left it , will change rings/mounts later.

At this point Im not touching the scope anymore at 50 yrds, even though its off center slightly, I switched to Wolf ammo. Im really testing the rifle for consistency/grouping.
Im very pleased with it so far at 50 yards. This target is #2 and there are 5 mags /20 rounds grouped under 1/2"

Now I just had to try it at 75 yrds , even with the wind, I was pleased with the groups at 75 yrds. 1st shot went 2" low and 3/4" left (wind Im Sure, no more adj anyway) I only adjusted the scope up 2" and shot 20 rounds. 3rd Target at 75 yrds.

All in all Im pleased with the rifle, but got to do some rings/ mounts rework.

What can I say about a .5lb trigger with zero creep and clicks like snapping a piece of hair made of glass.

The scope is a Simmons 22mag, 3x9x32, inexpensive but good clear glass, and a real fine crosshair . Was magnifying at 5X. Never changed it, probably should to see if zero held.

Next time , hopefully no wind and I will go to 100 yrds.

Good day.

You got a good one there.

I have a 452 from about 2003. The trigger is 3.7# and feels gritty. Don't think I've fired it. Have to get out to the range after the snow quits.

You may need to install a Leupold base and rings with windage adjustment. Don't forget to center the windage on the scope before bore sighting again.

That's exactly what went thru my mind, when I ran out of adjustment,
Leuplold mount.

and I do get in a hurry at times (wanting to shoot) I did not check the setting of the scope to center adj.

I will redo it, but at least I know the rifle shoots.

Sometimes you take a chance buying a used gun, like cars, someone elses problem.
