What is your favorite .22 ?

What is your favorite .22 rifle for target shooting, hunting, etc.
My overall favorite is my Remington 513-T
A buddy has a Martini with Parker Hale sights that is wickedly accurate!

Probably my Ruger 10-22T. I've got a 6.5-20 target scope on it, and it has a Hogue overmolded stock. It shoots very accurately out to 100 yards.
I've shoot my buddy's Ruger 77-22. Wow, is that a nice rifle! Might be my next .22.

Thanks for the kind words Neil, I also truly enjoy shooting my 77/22. Not a whole lot of rapid fire there but very fun to shoot.

I also had 10/22 T and it was a fine gun. I just found myself burning up more ammo and went back to bolt action.
Yes... The 22 Magnum is offered in both the 77/22, and the 10/22, and is a fun plinker that can really be used for larger rodents.

The 77/22 can also be had in 22 Hornet, if you want to get even more "punch"

I have one of the Ruger 77-22H Hornets. Put a Leupold 3-9 on it. It's a nice trim little carry rifle for walk-around varmint shooting. Good to at least 150 yards if you're careful.

My only .22 is by default my favorite...a Ruger 10/22 with Hogue overmolded stock, 3-9x40 variable scope and Butler Creek bull barrel. It's murder on squirrels, rats and popcans out to 100 yards. I decked it out like a pocket sniper rifle, complete with flip-up scope covers, and it's a blast and a half to shoot.

This is like asking "favorite child", cruel to make me pick.



Remington 541X US marked Military issue smallbore
rifle. Originally contracted and produced in mid 80's
these guns are extremely high quality and un-issued. I
got mine from DCM for $260 delivered. That is about
$400 dollars less than it's actual value. It was
absolutely new in the box and unfired. I modified the
trigger with the addition of a setscrew and it now
breaks at a crisp 14ozs. Accuracy with even cheap
hunting ammo like Winchester Expert is stellar. I put 3
shots into a 1/4" group at 100 yards from a sitting/sling
position last year using this ammo. I was quite
stunned.




Ruger 1022 Custom, Fajen Midnight Silhouette stock,
Volquartsen Lightweight Aluminum Tension Sleeve
barrel, Volquartsen Muzzle Dissipator, All Volquartsen
internals (including buffer, hammer, sear, bolt guide
and springs, others), TASCO Euro-Class 30mm 3-12x52
Scope, Tasco Rimgs, Volquartsen Cantilever base,
Butler Creek lens covers, Harris Bipod. Lightweight and
accurate. Shoots an inch at 50yds with cheap stuff and
will go under 1/2" at 50 yards with Winchester Power
Point. Best accuracy to date is 0.629" 5-shots CTC at
100 yards with Win PP. Weight is about 7lbs.

Anschutz 1730D in .22 Hornet. Not exactly a .22 rimfire, but I like the longer range capability of the Hornet.



Doesn't shoot half bad either!

100 yard, 5 shot group

I guess it would have to be my Belgium Brownings...no wait..uh the Winchester 63 maybe. But then again the Winchester 61 is a lot of fun as well. Oh..I know its the FN auto loader, the precurser to the Brownings which loads thru a hole on top of stock instead of the side.

i like my ar15. lots of rounds and plenty
of reach. my 22lr always runs out of gas
at 10 to 15 rounds and its not worth
spendig 50.00 on a 25rnd butler creek.
