Default A good .22 LR

Don't jump out there and say the new Weatherby! I'm looking for a good .22 LR at a reasonable price. My dad has a Marlin bolt action that was my great grandfathers that I can shoot holes in pennies from 100 yards. Thats plenty accurate enough for me. I want something I can mount a scope to and use for target as well as groundhogs and such. I know, I should use a .223, .22-250 or something similar but a .22LR is one I don't have in my collection and would like to add. Any advice would be appreciated.

I think you just opened up a big can of worms here......
I myself have always been partial to single shot and lever actions, but if you're looking for something versatile and not outrageously expensive, check out the T/C Contender Carbine. You can have it in .22LR with a scope, and when you want something bigger, swap barrels for another caliber. The scope is mounted to the barrel so the zero never changes when you switch barrels. The trigger action is excellent and the length-of-pull remains the same with whatever barrel you put on it.

My 2¢ worth:

Semi auto---Ruger 10-22. Fun little gun stock, huge range of
aftermarket goodies from mild to wild.

Bolt---I've got a Savage that's a fun shooter and scary accurate. Magazine
fed, accu-trigger, synthetic stock. Or pick up an older Remington, Winchester, CZ or whatever. Pretty hard to wear out a 22LR, but they do
get abused.

Default A good 22 lr.

I have several differant types of 22 lr's that would fit you bill. I have 10/22's that are very accurate, a couple marlin 22's that are good. But the Best of the bunch are Ruger M77/22's. I have 3 different ones, and every one is such a great shooter that it's hard to determine which one is the best shooter.
I'd have to go with the Target Grey/ Laminated stock as the very best 22 rifle I've ever shot. Makes hits at 100 yds. seem very easy. I've shot clay pidgeons at 200 yds. with it and made 6 hits in a row. Great rifles. They may seem pricey but they are made to fit an adult and handle just like a M77 in centerfire cals.

+1 on the Ruger M77/22. Other than recoil and cost, it's no different than shooting any of my centerfire bolt action's. Really helps me hone my shooting technique without breaking the bank. Clean used guns can be found in the $350 range.

Browning Buckmark Camper for pistol and Henry lever for rifles. I have both, I like both. Rather inexpensive too.

Marlin mod. 60 is one of the best and most accurate 22 around. Ruger 10/22 is an absolute great shooter also. The difference would be if you like to shoot 14 rounds and reload or put in a 30 round banana and whack away put another one in and go again. This would be one of the factors weighing in on your choice.
