While Czechoslovakia was in the "Evil Empire" ,for all practical purposes, there were no CZ/Brno firearms imported to the US. Now the CZ's have become a force in this market place.
It is my understanding that CZ's in 375's and 416's are a standard in Africa along with the 9.3x62. Would it be fair to state that CZ may have as much, perhaps, more, experience building production Big Game guns as anybody in the world? CZ appears to have made a true magnum lenght action rifle available to everyone.
I did note that our CZ 550's appeared to be distinctively different from those sold elsewhere. Those stocks appeared to be slimmer lacking recoil bolts. Rifles here are bulky and have now added recoil bolts.
Where I'm going is suggesting a piece on CZ/Brno's Big Game rifles here and those in Africa. It would also be of interest to have some additional information on bullet behavior with Paragrine and other bullets made for thick skinned heavy boned animals from these rifles. No speculation but actual experience would be good.
