Default Heading out to shoot the feb match, well maybe not

Short notice,
Any one in San Diego want to meet up at P2K in El Cajon?
I'm going to see if I can shoot this C 455. I'll be on the rifle range.
Look for my company Logo on the back of my shirt.

Hey...!!! Aren't you the guy who makes custom leather products locally in San Diego? I've seen your work and it's second to none...

How did the CZ shoot Fredo? Maybe I'll see you next week. I'll have my Henry Frontier by then....

Well guys I went, took 2 hrs to get a lane. I spent 1/2 hr just waiting for cease fires blah blah blah. By the time I got the scoped dialed in at 50 yrds it was time to go home. No targets to post.
CZ455 review: I like the trigger out of the box although it would not hurt it to give it a tune up. The bolt felt a bit too tight, or I should say not very smooth. I'll have to look into a fix for that. I am not happy with my scope mounting. The DIP base works great but I need taller rings to get the scope out of the way of my hand when I work the bolt.
Once I got it dialed in I was happy with the way it held zero. If I did my part the rifle shot where I was aiming. All in all it was a PITA to shoot today but I do like this rifle.

Too bad about the crowds. Can't they tell you were there to shoot a new rifle? Maybe just working the bolt will smooth it out. What other fix did you have in mind?

Sando nailed it. My CZ UltraLux bolt was tight when new but smoothed out with use. If you have the time just sit in front of your favorite TV show and work the bolt a few hundred times. Put a little gun oil on it and have at it. CZ's are known for tight tolerances. They are also know for their high bolt throw.
