These days, an CZ 452 or 453 isn in my opinion the best bang for the buck. These rifles will shoot along with anchutz, model 52 winchester, 541T remingtons and coopers. Not bad for a 4-500$ rifle, CZ's have threaded barrels that screw into the billet receiver.

Of course an old Mossberg in good shape is scary accurate in the right hands.

+1 for the CZ 452, my varmint in 22lr paired with a Weaver V-16 scope will hold its own against rifles costing twice the price

The most accurate is going to be one of two rifles an Anny or a shul 150 them shuls are crazy accurate. A Marlin Ruger or any other will not hold a candle to what a shul or anny will do. The remington 40x may come close and a cooper as well.

I would be willing to part with my let testicle for a shul or a kidney. Haven't seen one going for under $2000.....

Exteme accuracy is expensive. So........How accurate do you wanna be? You can spend several THOUSAND dollars on rifle and scope. Or, go over to the CMP website (google Civilian Marksmanship Program) and take a look at the Mossberg 44 US rifles they have for sale to the AMERICAN general public- for under $200. They will shoot the pants off the 10/22s, and most of the other stock 22 rifles. To beat the accuracy on those, you will need to spend 3-15 times that much. Of course, this is why Breyers has different flavors- different tastes.

I'd pick almost ANYTHING over a bone-stock baseline 10/22 for $189.98 at Walmart. Heck, even a bent-barrel Savage could do better. If you get the Bull Barrel Stainless Steel model for $379...you are considerably better off, but it's still going to take a beating from a CZ trainer.

Anschulz, Howa, Marlin, CZ, even an Squires-Bingham model 16 (now ARMSCORPS 1600) have out of the box sub-moa accuracy at 50+ yds that will eat a 10/22 alive. Now if you want to spend $600+ accurizing a 10/22, you can get something that shoots well.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Back to the main question at hand...

In the land of .22 caliber rimfire, the .22WMR rules the roost. Yeah, it costs a little more to shoot, but the effective range is double that of a .22lr and it'll take out fox & coyotes at 150 with no problems. Bolt-action is definitely the way to go with either round as people who are shooting bolt-action take more time with their shots to BE more accurate and don't "spray & pray" hoping they'll hit something...

You purchase a Bolt-Action for precision.

You purchase a Semi-auto for fun & noise-making

As far as Bang for the Buck...for under $250 - grab a Marlin Bolt-Action...almost any of them. New, they're inexpensive, and unbelievably cheap at pawn shops. But those Micro-Groove barrels have proven themselves time & time again to be the best thing since sliced bread...all YOU have to do is figure out which type of ammo works best in your particular model & take a weekend to glass bed the action.

Cost no big deal...CZ makes a dangfine rifle in the $400 & up category. Frighteningly accurate.

You can buy a good Suhl 150 for around $1000 to $1200.

I have seen Suhl 150-1(2nd version Suhls) go for around $700 to $800.

100 yards yes, with a properly tuned rifle, 200, I dont think so..
+1

Marlins are scary accurate for such a low price tag Those Micro-groove barrels are unreal (Of course, that's why Remington bought 'em last year...to make their rifles better)

Under $300, any Marlin bolt-action.

Midrange money - a Sako Finnfire

Money no object - An Anschutz Model 2013 with the 2313 stock walking in Bill Gates territory there
