Maybe I am late to the game but just tried the new CFE BLK in my 221 FB and itís impressive.
Mine is a CZ with a 16.5 inch barrel and with 40 gr bullets I am running 3300 and with 50 gr 3200.
Not too shabby.... headed now to go shoot some critters with it.

Iíve wanted a 221 FB for years. Would have bought one if I could have found the rifle I wanted, but the ďmust haveĒ moment passed. Heck, I have a great 223, so I am trying to resist that urge to get a 221. If the only voice in my head is the one saying to buy a 221, I donít think I qualify as crazy.

I've got a 12" contender in 221 FB and is very accurate, one of my favorite barrels.
