I'm really interested in getting one of CZ's bolt action rifles, I'm just a little curious about a few things.
Can you reload them with the magazine still in the rifle, and what's the build quality like?
People say that full stocked rifles suffer from wood warps. Although this is true, newer rifles, such as the CZ FS series, manage this issue by making the barrel free-float in the stock (the barrel actually doesn't touch the stock), and the contact points are reinforced by steel.
CZ FS rifles are literal tack pushers and they are well made and reliable. Cold hammer forged.
I had to choose between a CZ 550 FS in 6.5 Swedish or .308. What a bummer.
"Full size" (CZ 550) are like any other bolt action full-size rifles. There is no magazine, and it is integrated, so you have to load by hand.
Just as a reminder, stripper clips need not apply because the round limit is 3 in CZ 550. I wish it was, but it's still a great rifle.
