My wife took my favorite rifle for herself so I get a new one. I'm a big fan of Remington 700s but I have my eye on the CZ 557 Sporter in 308. All the reviews I've read have been good. I like everthing about it except the 20.5" barrel. I prefer 22" barrel but I think I can live with that.

I own more CZ than any other brand. Was really disappointed when they discontinued the 550 American. The barrels on the 557 are just too short for me though. There is no right or wrong when it comes to barrel length just preference.

I agree. I think 1.5" may equate to 50 fps. I just like em about 22"24" is ok 26" is a little to long for my taste.

Maybe next time I'll get a CZ I went with the Remington 700 again.
