Q: "Can CZ rifles chambered in .223 fire 5.56 ammunition safely?" A: All of our .223s will happily eat 5.56. Since our factory is in Europe, we build everything to CIP spec, which doesn’t differentiate between the two cartridges and just has the higher pressure as its standard. So the CZ .223s will shoot everything from the cheapest Russian steel to match .223 brass ammo.
My Remington 700 SPS in .223 is about as easy on the shoulder as you're likely to find in a popular center-fire cartridge.Not into hunting but never know if the need should arise and wanted something other than a .22 or other rimfire rifle. Mostly target. I like the idea of a .223 once I already have an AR-15 but would like a good bolt action rifle as well.
The MVP Patrol is a less expensive version of the Predator: Mossberg & Sons | MVP PatrolI've got my eye on a Mossberg MVP Predator bolt action rifle. It is chambered in 5.56 and has a laminate stock. And, it takes the 30 round AR mags too
