Thread: .222 barrel length

    .222 barrel length

    Never been happy with the threads on my 527's barrel so I'm going to get it re-crowned and re-threaded. CZ527, lovely light little rifle, but with a 22" barrel and mod it's the longest rifle in the cabinet. So, I'm planning having about 4" taken off the barrel. Anyone done the same, or shorter ? Is there a limit for .222 barrel length without compromising velocity ?

    I had one at 18 inches. Very accurate. If you reload just use a fast burning powdef

    dosnt trouble me.

    Have to say yours did look a treat once it had been done.
