Default 10/22 Ammunition

Is it safe to fire .22 mag poly-tip ammunition from CCI in a Ruger 10/22, or is it strictly only .22 LR rounds? Was just interested in the poly-tip for hunting.

Nvm...found the answer......what are the top 5 varmint ammunitions in .22 LR? Looking to try several brands to see what the gun shoots best with.

Also, outside of a new stock...is there anything I can do about a scope that sits too high? I don't have any rings on it at all... it's about an inch too high..

Bore sight it. Either with a laser, or the old fashioned way. Otherwise take of the scope and try a dot sight maybe? That's what I'm doing.

If the new stock doesn't have enough elevation on the cheek rest I will probably take that route.

What chew mean you have no rings on your scope at all?? Got have some if it sits to high. Buy lower rings to cure the problem.

Photos would help too.

Guess you figured out if you have a 22mag 10/22 then yea try the poly tips if they fit the mag. But do have a magnum version or a plan ole .22lr rifle. IF you have a 22lr I don't use HP ammo. I shoot only what shoots best and with stock 10/22 barrel it no telling. Try cci standard , green and mini mags and go from there. Mine aren't stock and I use wolf or sk rifle match for tree rats and other critters like problem ratcoons. .

Ammo: My old 10/22 eats just about everything with Std. 10rd. mags. when I use one of the Butler creek ones, that isn't the case. I also have 2 Newer Ruger BX-25's that are Good. Mostly CCI MiniMags(RN not HP), Win Super-X, and the Federal Champions and Federal Auto Match are what we feed all of ours. Many Many Jams with Remington T-Bolts,..but thats the Ammo..My Big 5 is supposed to get Fiocchi "fresh fire" cans In..

I have three 10/22's all like remington copper clad ammo. Hard to find now.. A ruger eats almost all ammo. But likes remington!

My Remington 597 .22lr (sold it) would jam with most brands of hollow point ammo. The plastic mags were the worst. I bought some remington steel 10rd mags and it seemed to jam (failure to feed and failure to extract) a little less. No experience with a 10/22 and I'm ashamed to say it lol. Been wanting one for a while.

My 10/22td likes cci stingers. Those are very good varmint rounds.

22lr 10/22 will work with everything 22lr except for subsonics which typically need to be hand cycled.

Sorry I meant no extra rings, just the ones it came with...I don't know how to tell how big they are.

Ill try to get my hands on some extra low scope rings.

The Sub-Sonics and shot shells also need to be hand cycled.
