Another Newbe Hello!
Posted 09 May 2012 - 07:08 PM
I have been pointed in numerous directions to purchase a new or used rifle to plink some more and kit my 3 teenage daughters involved.
I have a Rem Speedmaster 552 in awful shape-sent an email today to a very good local gunsmith to explore rebuilding it (was my grandfathers), and as stated above I have a Neos with the Carbine Kit and very bad RedDot on top.
Guys in the know started me in the Rugar 1022 direction, and now pointing me in the CZ 452 camp.
i'm looking for something I can get pretty darn accurate up to 100 yds, maybe not win a national competition, and certainly not crazy expensive or needs to be fed high dollar brass.
I look forward to reading a lot here and doing some learning!

Get that Remington 552 up and running. I bet it proves to be a good rifle.

As to good rifles to get - get both the 10/22 AND the CZ!! how 'bout them apples!!! With multiple people shooting, you're gonna need some equipment and more is always better! Can I have an "Amen"? Seriously, the 10/22 can be customized for any type or style of shooting and get very good accuracy - if you pick the ammo it likes. The CZ comes from the factory VERY capable of good accuracy - even very good accuracy. You may have to tweak or replace the trigger to get its best acuracy, but non of that is very costly either. You get 2 different rifle actions (semi-auto and bolt) but well built, accurate and fun guns to shoot.
Get those girls to help you "select" the ammo for all 3 rifles. Buy a selection of high velocity and match grade ammo and give them a good try from bench rests. Not only does this tell you what the rifle likes, it builds good shooting skills at the same time. Be sure to get quality scopes for them to better see the results as they happen but also to have the repeatability in the adjustment because the different ammo's will likely shoot to different points of impact - especiall going from Hi velocity to match grade (usually about 1040-1080 fps - much slower that the hi vel stuff)!
Good luck - enjoy the journey. Enjoy the children - they won't be there after a few more blinks.
