The CZ 550 Varmint is a bolt-action rifle chambered in .22-250 Rem. and .308 Win. It is distinct among the CZ 550 series for having a heavy barrel, which is meant to reduce recoil and therefore add accuracy. The gun comes with walnut, laminate and Kevlar stock variations, each equipped with a four-round detachable magazine. As with any varmint rifle, CZ recommends the 550 Varmint for hunting small game such as coyotes, wolves, squirrels, and rabbits.
