    All around as in vermin right? Good round, good rifles. The scopes and moddy's that come with them aren't the best (usually) so it may be worth pricing up the bare rifle with the scope and moddy of your choice whilst still keeping it within your budget obviously. Worth looking second hand as well.

    223 ammo will be much easier to get hold of and have a greater selection mind.

    Looked at howa, went Cz 527. 204 great calibre but only if you home load. If you are reliant on factory stick to .223.

    Looked in sportsmans today, they got the CZ and howa Mini side by side in the rack.
    difficult choice, cz a bit more money, howa got a 10 shot mag.
    Cz got dovetails, howa drilled for bases or a rail.
    size and weight about the same.
    loads or reviews for cz, nothing yet about the mini.
    Set trigger on cz? not on howa
    Got an empty slot and had cash in my hand and still walked away

    That's discipline! I think I would have ended up parting with the cash

    Was the Hornday 204 factory ammunition really that bad?
