I am thanking of setting up a 10/22 as a sniper system. Just incase I run out of ammo in my bigger guns. Plus I can stock up on more .22 ammo.
Any advice on what would be the best threaded barrel to go with for maximum accuracy and range would be grate also.
Frankly, you'd be better off with a Savage or Marlin if you want a sniper system, and with those, you'd not have to change out the barrel.
Marlin 795 w/ Ramline folding stock, bipod, & sling...
Marlin 25MN (grandpappy of the XT22M's) in .22WMR...dead coyote's at up to 160 yards so far
.22lr is quite deadly to pumpkins at 800 yards as well...hehehe!!
