I'm interested in experience based testimonies, not if I had X amount of money I'd do this... (I don't really care what your dream gun is). Let's hear it: I'd like to evaluate the choices I have made and see what others have to say. Optics or accessories are part of the discussion too. Category #1: Extreme Accuracy for bench-rest shooting at 50 and 100 yards. I've got a CZ 452 Military Trainer fitting this role now and it's ok. Extremely accurate and awesome iron sights! but I can't have my cake and eat it too, the European stock SUCKS for the cheek weld with a scope. I'm looking for a scoped rifle that can hit a quarter 10/10 at 50 yards all day long and this is the best I've found for the money. Category #2: Backpacking or light weight plinking gun, varmint/tactical or whatever floats your boat. I've got a 10/22 Takedown fitting this role now and it's ok too. I dislike the stock sights and can't find any aftermarket ones I like that much. Sights are my only major complaint with this gun, trigger sucks... compared to the CZ but that's not a big deal in this category.
