    Next season I’ve got the Mannlicher Schoenauer MC Carbine in 6.5x54 MS to blood as well as a Mannlicher Schoenauer MCA Carbine in 7x57 . I’ve been intrested in Mannlicher Schoenauer Guns for over fifty years and at the moment I’ve got the 1903 a 1908 and six of the MC/MCA carbines . Also have a CZ550 FS in 6.5x55 that I’ve killed deer with .
    Go Manny Pacquiao !!!

    Yep....pretty much my game plan as well, although the last few years I've tended to let the nice young bucks walk. This one was an exception because I was very anxious to blood the M-S. I'd already decided that a shooter (we shoot does and bucks 6 pts or better on our lease) was gonna be toast if I was carrying it.

    I was totally uninterested in M-Ss until shouldering this one, the first one I ever picked up. Just by looking at them, I figured that mid placed bolt handle would be as awkward as all get out. However, it was love at first touch. The full stock didn't hurt matters either. I've had a love affair with them since building one in the mid 80s using a barreled Whitworth 7X57 action and a Fagen 90% stock.

    I've been thinning out the safes to concentrate on just the favorites in the few hunting years I have left. The two Brno 22Fs (7 and 8X57) and a twin to your CZ will be used mostly from here on out. That CZ 550FS in 6.5 Swede is easily the most accurate full stocked rifle I've ever owned. Too bad it's so clunky....comparing it to it's grandfathers (the two Brnos) is like comparing a heavy weight boxer to a couple of gymnasts! I just cannot understand why the CZ/Brno rifles morphed from the slick, agile 21s and 22s to the 550. I guess they were going for rugged so you could beat an animal to death if you forgot your ammoÖ.

    I fell in love with them at first sight as well. Unfortunately none have ever came to call on me yet. Love the full stocks. Would also like a 10-22 in full stock. Someday......
