Now that I finished my AR I want to build a great target 22. I want a fluted or bull barrel wood stock ( looks) and either bolt or semi. What would you 22 pros suggest? How would you start a good build?

Do you have a dollar amount to spend. And a idea of how accurate your looking for and type of shooting to be done.

You can build a semi auto with a old beater ruger or buy a new reciever and go from there. 10/22 parts from Kidd for triggers and barrels and small parts or fedderson for barrel and even a finished fun match rifles can be a place to start. Clark customs also, they started the 10/22 craze. Or buy a KIDD Ultimate and go shooting.
NO semi auto will better a good bolt rifle unless its a speed match at the higher levels. But darn fun.

Bolt rifles?? savage , many different models that may fill your needs. They can be a CZ accurate or not quit as good.
CZ has a some fine shooting rifles from classic skinny barrels to heavy in several series.

Anshutz for very good rifles in at some of anny's prices maybe think about building? and full on custom stating with something like a action from Hall mfg and broughton or benchmark barrels. $$$$

No matter what you do you still have to find the ammo thats brings your rifle up to it best.

Dollar amount well not really. I just want a good target 22 that if I decide in the future I can do some local shooting events with and be competitive at them. I have seen a few guys at iur local range and they had nice set ups. They said they did not have a ton in them and I know they are way cheaper to plunk with. I noticed one had a bull barrel and one was fluted. Heck the only 22 I have owned was my old squirrel gun and my great grand dads Remington model 6 single shot.

Take a look at Savage. Their stock stuff covers your wish list. Also, they have a custom shop, although my recent experience with that was frustrating, although the gun will be awesome when I get the small things ironed out.

Cool. I like savage but did not think about them for this rifle. Thanks for the info.

I have a savage MKII bv that cost just over 300 dollars I did put a 6-24 scope on it and it can take a few hundred rounds before they shoot there best but it will shoot wolf or sk rifle match ammo 3/8" at 50 yards. You will find the stocks need some added check stick on cheek weld pad most times. There are some tuneing tricks you can do to get the trigger down to 1lb and still be dependable . Many don't like the accu-trigger as it does still have some creep to it but its ok. Savage does have many to pick from. If your willing to spend a bit more money ,the CZ line is on average just a better shooter. Go over to rimfirecentral and read around. The 17hrm is one of the most accurate of all at the longer distance and most time legal in all rimfire matchs. Ammo cost is about the same as you will spend on worth while .22 ammo ,atleast.

If you want looks, take a look at the Volquartsen web site...the things they can do with barrels & receivers are Unreal!!

If you want inexpensive, yet precise enough for competition...
grab an older Marlin 880SQ or 2000L or 7000, all have heavy target barrels and are spot on for low bucks!

Want to get ugly out to 150-200 yards, make it a .22WMR...Marlin 982VS or XT22MVSR with heavy target barrels
