Thomas KitchenOne thing I notice is you got to like a rifle and you got to have confidence in it.
No point buying a rifle you don't like because then you'll loose confidence in it.
If I was after 223 the rifles I would look at are.
Cz 527 beautiful set trigger but does have protruding mag.
Cz forget model that has floor plate compared to magazine.
Howa mini protruding mag but nice handy rifle, would probably get heavy barrel model.
Model 7 stainless you could argue that your better off with model 700 instead.
Theres all other options like savage and ruger etc to.
If I think I was looking at ruger American I think I would be tempted to go 22-250 as they offer it with1-10 twist.
Browning I learnt have 32tpi thread, think savage has 20 to, Remington has 16 to and old mauser has 12 to.
Getting 32tpi stainless on stainless threads apart doesn't sound like fun.
