Have done everything you have said with the 452 but could be short stroking the bolt. But the spent cases take some prising out.

The 457 has not had much use so shouldn't be dirty but i will try new ammo and report back in a couple of weeks.

Yes, an update would be useful thanks.Same with 457 possibly being short stroked?

I’ve had a 452 .17 for the past 12 years plus it’s always delivered very accurate results when I upgrade it will be another Cz in synthetic. 

The ultimate rabbit gun.


Nice shooting.👍🏻 and nice looking rifle.Having had a few rifles with walnut stocks I do actually prefer a good synthetic stock.The 457 Synthetic stock is basic but well thought out in that it is very comfortable which allows for a correct cheek weld.

Put 20 Eley subs through 457 today. No problem at all. Will try Norma and CCI next week.

I know 20 is not many but the winnies would of stuck after 1 or 2. Eley's seemed a tad thinner than the winnies.

Might be my eyes.

Samboy, the cases on the Winchester 42 grain hollow point I believe are a little bit longer than a typical subsonic .22lr hollow point. I read this on the Winchester website a few years ago if memory serves.I am not 100% certain about this, but think this is correct.

I am not surprised the Eley are extracting without issue and so will the Norma and CCI be without issue as the 457 is very reliable.

I would not use the Winchesters.

      Hello all.🙂
      Just an update as it has been a while.I have been looking for a subsonic .22LR hollow point that shoots well from a cold clean bore and have recently started using RWS subs which do well, typically from the first shot..I have used a few different brands of subsonic H.P.s and they all group quite well after 5 or so fouling shots, but RWS like the cold clean bore,needless to say I am a happy and for me, decent shooting.🙂.I have used the RWS before in the old Annie 1416 DG and it was equally consistent in that rifle.
      A couple of typical below all from a cold clean bore..My scope is a Hawke Vantage x2 -x7 32mm A.O. with illuminated reticle which is a great field scope but lacks magnification for target shooting so is sometimes difficult to deduce if a shot has been pulled, but I love the scope.
      Have a good weekend all.🙂

      If anyone’s interested, I decided to pattern and compare .22 and 9mm flobert shotshells. Using my 14 inch Anschütz, I shot a .22 Winchester superX #12 shot at a rat target at five yards to see if it would likely be effective at that range. To compare using my 24 inch Manu-Arm bolt action, I shot 9mm fiocchi #6 shot at the same range, and 9mm rws acorn brand #10 at the same range. I went on to extend the range of the 9mm flobert’s at ten, fifteen and twenty yards for comparison. Here’s the results.....
