My 527 7.62 x39 carbine performed flawlessly this morning.   20 steps, the SST put the hammer down.

Thank you for the pictures!

Where I live, 7.62x39 is more expensive than .223 so I decided to go for the .223. I don't plan to hunt with it, I just want to learn a new skill: rifle shooting.

I don't hunt either but it looks like both the you and the carbine did the job flawlessly.

Deer was 18-20 steps, very slight angle to its left.  Bullet entered in front of right shoulder through the neck, lodged left in the left rib cage. Total destruction within chest cavity.

Guardian, how is that 527M in 223 shooting? I'm interested in purchasing the carbine in 223 and I'd like to hear your input on it's accuracy and performance.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to this thread and your question.....the carbine in both calibers are really accurate, performance is exceptional as well.  The entire 527 platform was just done right.  Whether using the standard or set trigger option(s) I didn't have any issues...just a joy to shoot.  If I had to be really picky, the first mag or two were a little stiff chambering rounds but once those were cycled through the chambering action smoothed out nicely, but new bolt actions are....well, new so a little break-in isn't unheard of.  Not many open sight carbines on the market, and even if there were I'm not sure any would be better than this........hope this helps....if you have any specific questions just post them and I'll check back regularly to answer.

Guardian, thank you and happy new year. I have the carbine in 7.62 and it works great, but I've only ever shot steel case through it and it's very accurate with that. I just ordered a RCBS kit and was going to start reloading 223 and I was considering buying the carbine in 223 as well. Most people who buy the carbine usually go for the 7.62 version so there's not much info on the carbines performance in 223 that I have found. Once I get some time under my belt reloading 223 I'm going to try 7.62, I have 100 brass cases put away in the caliber. I enjoy shooting 223 as it's very low recoil and a very accurate round for my use. Thank you for your reply and info.
