    I have a CZ452 special and am trying out different ammo to find that "magic"
    bullet. I have read there rifles like subsonic ammo and SV ammo, Augila makes
    both but to get it I have to order it as I live in a small town and theres not alot
    of choices to choose from. One I have found it likes is Peters HV RN ammo, it
    shoots it pretty accurately if I do my part! lol, anyway Nachez has augila on
    sale for about 3 bucks a box, both SV and subsonic any imput would be
    welcome, since I will have to pay shipping im not just getting a box or two!
    Your opinions would be welcome. thanx, DA :D

    I like it for my 22s, both the powder and no powder. No problems for me.

    If you are going to order out for ammo any way, I would suggest some Wolf or SK rifle match. My CZ 452's love them. They cost a little bit more, but will give you smaller groups IMHO anyway. The Augila should be tried as well, as what little I have shot of it I think it is good too, but not in the same class as the Wolf or SK.

    Regards, Kirk

    The Aquila Colibri is fun to shoot through a pistol, not accurate outside 3 feet but fun anyway. They will not make it to the end of the barrel in a rifle, at least they didn't in my Mossberg. I have never bought any more Aquila so I can't say any thing about their other selections.

    They are great fun with a 22 revolver, for short range. Nothing over 25 feet though. If you can get an inside the house range, or make one, they fit the bill.

    Hi there; At the Benchrest Rifle Club of St. Louis (shootingstl.com) we shoot a lot of 452's in Vintage Benchrest which is 50 yards outdoors under the lights on Saturday nights. The 452's on Harris bipods give rail guns and unlimiteds a run for the gold. Standard Plus is the ammo the Czechs use in the factory for regulation. Find a lot that your rifle likes and buy a few bricks. Most of us are liking 02543-10294 but you are unlikely to find any. Beware of discount ammo sources for the Standard Plus, they are likely to have lots that experience low demand. There is a debate about freefloating the barrel vs. leaving the damping bump on the stock. Remove the barrel and look for a black felt-tip pen circle with an X in it an inch or two back from the fore end tip. Most or all have it. Personally, I think the bump is for hunters to place all the cold-barrel shots in one place. Target shooters remove the bump to get small groups after firing a few (10-15) foulers. I removed mine and replaced the trigger. It shoots (50 yards outdoors)under a quarter, mostly under a nickle, unless the wind is playing guessing games. Enjoy, Max
