Reasonable is a rather ambiguous term.
Yep what he said... I think CZ is probably the most bang for the buck when it comes to quality. Savage and Marlin do make some nice shooting guns for less money but you can really tell the difference in manufacturing when you hold them side by side.
The Ruger 77/22 is a very well made rifle but they do not tend to be very accurate guns from the examples I've owned. I cured the last one by putting a Shillen barrel on it and it's a tackdriver now but that is a $250 upgrade to a gun that is not cheap to start with.
Some of the most accurate .22 bolt guns I own are old (1950's) Mossbergs but the prices on those are starting to really creep up.
