452/455 vs Ruger American

What are you Tx guys using? And 22LR vs Mag? Any varmint use?

Thanks.

I have a CZ 455 Heavy in .17 HMR that shoots lights out. Love that rifle.

I don't have nor have I ever used a RAR so I can't comment on it. I hear they are decent rifles.

Can't help with the Ruger. Have CZ-452 in both 22Mag and 17HMR, excellent shooters with very good triggers and 3x9 scopes. Consistent 1-1.5" groups at 100 yards. That said, I have a NEF single shot with old Redfield 6X scope and fine lines which will shoot circles around both of them. Ragged 10-shot group the size of a quarter, clean or dirty, hot or cold. With the 20 gr 17HMR, I kill coyotes at 200 yards no problem.

I have the RAR target version in .22lr. I posted some target photos here:

http://texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbth...et_#Post6729720

That was when I first got it. Since then I've found some other ammo that shoots about as well as the CCI standard velocity target.

Mostly use it for plinking at the lease. Works plenty well enough for that.

I only have CZs. A .22 in 452 and a 17 in 455. Both shoot excellent. I would like to get a 22 mag some day just to have one but I would always get a 17 first because of its performance.

I had a CZ in 17 HMR that didn't shoot well at all IMHO. Of those, I'd go with the Ruger. But the CZ did feel very well made and most folks report very good accuracy from them.

Buzzsaw, been thinking about a quality bolt in the price range of these two models.

200 yds on yotes is impressive. Can anyone comment on meat damage on small game like tree squirrels and rabbits using the 22 mag and 17 HMR? Thanks for all replies, good info, welcome others.

I just got a cz 455 varmint last week. After shooting it in one range session I just purchased another one. Can't beat them for the price.

My 22 Mag blows up rabbits, haven't shot a squirrel with one.

I much prefer anything CZ over Ruger in a rifle.
