Default My new CZ 550 FS in 6.5x55

So had this rifle for a couple weeks and finally got the time to take it out and all I can say is wow. I shot privi through it and was shooting about 1.5 moa with open sights offhand. I'm sure with a rest/bipod and scope the group would shrink. Unfortunately my phones camera isn't working so I couldn't take pics at the range but here's a pic when I got it.

Nice rifle. If you handloaded, the 6.5x55 is even sweeter.

Dang...I want a modern 6.5x55 rifle to complement my M/96 and I think I would have to get a CZ like that instead of a light Tikka with no iron sights.
Where'd you buy it & what was your price, if you don't mind me asking.
