Default CZ 527/Ruger 77 in 7.62X39

I have a bunch of CZ rifles and know they are good shooters, but I don't know much about the X39 cartridge other than it's cheap as hell and works fine in one of my ARs. Does anyone have the cartridge in a bolt rifle, hopefully the CZ, and can tell if it shoots well? Does the CZ use .308 diameter bullets or .312? Any info on the Ruger version? I've dropped off a Ruger 77/44 (at City Arms - bit of a plug) once it sells I'm going to pick up a X39 to take its place. Not sure whether it will be CZ or Ruger, I like the looks of the Ruger better, but I know the CZ will be accurate.

For reloading, are there .308 and .312 specific set ups? What sort of 100 yd accuracy can I expect (with a modest under 9X powered scope) from the cartridge?

I cant say for sure that its a .312 bore but I know that people use .311 bullets in it with great success. BTW, if you need scope rings, I have a couple for sale for cheaper than anywhere else Ive found. Good luck with your decision between CZ and Ruger

BTW, isnt the set trigger on the CZ cool as hell?

It's OK, but shooting off a bench it's kind of a pain to reset. I usually use the trigger without the set and it's OK, but because of the design although it can be set light it still feels a touch soft.

If accuracy trumps all, get the CZ.

According to my reloading books, the 7.62x39 is balistically almost identical to the .30-30 cartridge; very similar bullet weights and muzzle velocities. Its possible to use either for hunting, but you'll be limited to close range, and I wouldn't attempt to take a hog with one.
