I have decided to buy a CZ 452 16" barrel .17hmr rifle but I am struggling to decide between the standard American model or the heavier barrelled Varmint.
I intend to use the rifle for a mixture of shooting from my vehicle, walking hedgerows and layed up shooting. I will in time for a bipod. I will it use it for target shooting and will not put too many rounds through it.
Although I have held both models, I haven't been able to hold both at the same time and so I am struggling to compare the weights. Is the varmint version ALOT heavier than the American and would you notice it after a days walking around?
What are people's experiences and opinions of these two rifles?
