I sold my 10/22 because it wasn't as reliable as I wanted. I ended up replacing it with a Marlin 795 after getting the itch for another scoped rifle. The Marlin is probably about the same reliability-wise, but it vastly more accurate. Even with the scope on 3x, hitting the 12" gong at 200 yards is a guaranteed 10/10 affair. I've only shot one group at 100 yards, and there were 9 shots inside 2", with one flier bringing it to 3". I was using Aguila Interceptor ammo (40gr@1470fps), which I've heard is relatively inaccurate.
