I wonder about the weird-looking bull barrels for the 10-22. I think they are "graphite" or something. I know CTD had one for the .17 Ruger 10-22.

Building custom rifles, gets a 10-22 request for a rebarrel. One customer had a gunsmith install an unturned blank barrel on his action. Claim it was for benchrest shooting. at 28 inches it shot worse than the original barrel.
Accuracy in 22 match rifles the barrel needs to be between 16 and 19.7 inches. Hyper velocity ammo can work better in a longer barrel, but match ammo starts to slow after 18 or so inches.
The other issue is chambers, Match chamber will push the bullet into the lands and make extracting an issue. For the 10-22 to cycle it needs a modified match chamber at best. If a full match chamber is done it will cause problems closing to firing position.
Bolt rifles are the ticket for most. I do have a 22 semi auto AR style rifle with a match chamber. It shoots the stingers very well at 100 yards. The spring is heavy and closes the bolt hard. Hard to get a chambered round out unless you fire it.

Hope this helps.

I just took my heavy barrel off and went back to the original barrel and stock. I am going to sell my barrel and Boyd Blaster stock. I have my CZ 452 and I will stick with a bolt if I need more accuracy. The 10/22 is a great plinker and I am going to leave it at that.

JTJ: Shoot me a price, pics, and barrel info.

I enjoy the hell out of my 22 with the weighted bull barrel. I see a little tighter groups with regular ammo but nothing overly amazing. I could hit a squirrel or rabit at 50 yards okay.
With Lapua match ammo through, I can shoot ten shots at 50 yards and nearly cover them all with a dime. That's a little higher priced ammo to plink with though. I'll use it squirrel hunting and knock them out of the tree at 50 to 75 yards with solid head shots.
I have not shot match ammo though the stock barrel though. If anyone is interested I would like to see the differences between match and shelf ammo through a stock barrel. I'd post pics of the same with a bull barrel. Anyone up for a 25 and 50 yard comparison with pics?

The barrel is an Adams & Bennett and has only had a few hundred rounds through it. the stock is a Boyd Blaster. There is a small knick in the top right side a few inches back from the front of the stock. I think you can see it in the picture. $100 plus shipping for both. I have shimmed the reciever area as it was a little too loose for my action. I used metal duct tape and it is easily removable.
