I think I am leaning towards the Savage bolt. I went and looked at all of them today. The ruger feels too small for me. Thanks for all the replies.

I am a large human, so the 10/22 is just a bit short for me. I will be putting a butt plate extension on it.

Good luck with your rifle, post pics...

If you do get the Savage bolt action - EGW makes a 20 MOA Picatinny Rail for the Mark II, should you decide to take up 200 yard shooting? There are some options available with the Savage. Would you be looking at the bull barrel ones, or the standard barrel MK II?

Hey User..

10/22 would be my first choice also but I noticed you did not mention Marlin.. they've got some super rimfires. Mod. 60's a great gun but I'd upgrade the optics if you get the packaged one. They put a cheap rimfire scope on it from the factory.

Default No semi auto!

If you are hunting in Pa. You can not use a semi auto rifle, only a shotgun or auto load shotgun plugged to 3 rounds, and a manual operated 22 for small game is legal so you may want to check the laws in the state or local you will be hanting in.

I love my 10/22 but there are more accurate .22's for the money. I love the amount of accessories available to "dress up". A 10/22 is as accurate as the $$ you spend one one. But for measure 3 shot.5in groups at 50yds with a stock 10/22 should be about right.

It depends on how much hunting vs target but I would suggest a CZ rifle for a good mix. 10/22's are hard to beat for the fun factor though.

It's also accurate right out of the box. Throw a decent scope on there and you're all set for way less money.

Later, you can get a VQ hammer and extractor for better performance.
I have a 597. LOVE IT!!!

I have a Savage MkII in Mako configuration with bull barrel and a 597 .22LR with Evolution stock and bull barrel. Both are scoped and both are dead-on accurate. Given my dealings (and that of many others as well) with Remington over the .17HMR version of the 597, I strongly recommend staying away from anything with the green "R" on it.

Yes, cptango30, there is a recall on Rem 597/.17HMRs. Remington is trying to pull off what I call a "recall on the cheap" by offering us a fraction of what the rifles cost us new, then limiting their offer to a coupon ($200 or $250, depending on version purchased) good only towards buying another Remington firearm. In fact, most of the semiauto rifles once offered in the caliber (Ruger, Magnum Research, etc.) should not be used, according to announcements from CCI (the primary domestic manufacturer of .17HMR ammo); only lever and bolt action rifles should fire the round. Magnum Research is offering a full refund. Ruger discontinued its version several years ago. I have heard anecdotal reports that Ruger has been exchanging their 1017s as problems develop. Last I heard, Volquartsen Customs still stands by their offering. As I understand it, semis just can't handle the pressure spike of the round, resulting in out-of-battery discharges, blown out receivers and magazines, etc. Remington wants us to believe it's an ammunition problem and out of the kindness of their heart they offer to take our unsafe firearms back without acknowledging any degree of responsibility for producing it in the first place. Given Remington's recent history of not supporting its products, I don't care to give them another opportunity to tell me "Gotcha - again."
