Great rifles for the money! I have an American in .204 and a Varmint in .17 Rem.

Another good accurate bullet for the .204 is a 39gr Sierra Blitzking. Very frangible, but accurate.

I am intrigued by the .204 but I already have most of the small calibers covered so unless I was to give up one or two that I have now, I can't justify adding one to the stable.


Like I needed another gun? I have 3 CZs- .222, 221 Fireball and now the .204 They sit between my .22-250 and my .243, next to my custom built .223 AR15.

None of them are quite the laser the .204 is....

Yes it is. You should have seen the one I had to replace on my other 527 after a bad piece of brass let go on me. It even was even nicer than this one. This particular one was one of six that they opened up for me at Sportsman's and I got the pick of the litter..LOL

I hear you. My current stable is 22 WMR, 17 Rem, 222 Rem, 223 Rem, 220 Swift on the varmint end of the scale.
I could easily get rid of the 223 AR as mine is a safe queen. I have two 17 Remington's so I could get rid of my 700 BDL and just keep the CZ. Oh, the stress we have to deal with...!!! LOL

The .204 is amazing!

The CZ 527 is amazing!

Unlike a “negative” where two negatives do not cancel one another out, two amazings make for a SIMPLY AMAZING!

Close runner up is my Savage short action top release I built into a 204, first with a varmint barrel and later I switched into a sporter in the same cartridge. I managed to source a target accutrigger and matching target sear. That trigger can be set as low as 6 oz. I started at 8 oz but for Farm life quickly went up-to 14 oz. of pull with it.

I have been exclusively using the 32 gr. V-max, either in factory or handloads because it’s Sooo..... accurate! But someday I will just have to get “Wild” and try that 39 gr Sierra that gets high marks. But I am a believer in the “If it ain’t broke, why mess with it” theory.

Best regards

No I don't WyoBull. People here think it's not good enough in the wind, unfortunately.

I bet you could get top dollar for it to somebody who wants it.

My name is Rob.. And I'm a CZ addict.! At the height of the illness I think I had 13 of them. Culled the herd to 8 or 9. Thereabouts. I realized I don't shoot many of them so I shared and sold them to good homes.

My lovely CZ 527 American in .223 just sits forlorn in the safe all the time I'm afraid. Shot a couple of months back and, as always, drove tacks. But because of its small size I cannot see hits very well with it when shooting at small furry critters. I would like to make it into something coolish like a .17 Fireball or .20 Vartarg but I have about as much need for another varminter as I do another testicle. So, for now at least, it sits. Just what it is.

Maybe next year it will be transformed into something else. Just will have to see how the wind blows I guess.

I bought a 527 varmint 204 years ago based off reviews from here. Had never looked at one.. I wish the safety was different but the set trigger is amazing, regular trigger is good, and accuracy is incredible.. I haven't had great luck with Hornady bullets, but with Sierra, nosler or berger it will put 5 in a dime!

Love my CZ 527 in .204! It's shot everything well from the 32's to the 40's. I've got a a great load dialed in now using the Berger 35's. Really happy with the accuracy and the fur friendliness of it.
