Default 10/22

Ok I want a 10/22 for carrying when I go hiking/camping/ and if needed for survival and would I need a bull barrel or just an after market regular sized factory barrel and what type of ammo does your 10/22 eat ?

For hiking/camping, I'd suggest a plain ol' stock 10/22. Keep it simple.

If you must do some mods, add a scope and have Stalkingbear do a trigger job for you.

Just because mods are available doesn't mean they're necessary for a good reliable 10/22.

What would the trigger job cost me? And would the factory barrel do the job on small game like squirrel etc at 50 yards with a good quality scope

other than a scope don't change anything until you shoot it with 3 or 4 brands of ammo. Chances are you can be very happy with no changes. no one can tell you which ammo will shoot the best out of your 22, so just try some.

A 10/22 is an excellent rifle as is.

PM Stalkingbear and he'll discuss it with you.

You MIGHT wanna consider a Marlin 70PSS Papoose instead...breaks down into a small carry-case (included) for ease of packing.
Use CCI minimags and it'll never give you a headache. http://www.marlinfirearms.com/firearms/selfloading/70pss.asp

Hello, I'm a new member and wondering where the best place might be on the forum to discuss Ruger 10-22. If someone can reply, I'm wondering if this thread is best? Thanks.

Dick

you can start one of your own in the 22 rifle/rimfire subsection.

You can do about anything with a 10/22. They have so much stuff for sale for them it's stupid.
With that said, I have two myself. Both with target stocks, bull barrels, and all that. And I always shoot Federal Gold Match ammo. Not the cheapest in lines of 22 ammo but still pretty cheap compared to ammo for most other guns.

In the end though, if you want to shoot a squirrel in the center of the eye ball at 75 yards, then go that route.

If you just want to shoot it in the head and get the exact same result, throw on a good scope, keep the gun clean, and call it a day. Just do some shooting with some different rounds to see what floats best.
