+1 the 77/22 is increadably accurate as it comes out of the box. Nice but the $600 + pricetag has always turned me off. Shot a few of my friends but never owned one myself. For this pricerange you can own a fully tricked out benchrest 10/22!

Also check out the new ruger American rimfires, 22lr and 22mag . Still very new but good reports so far. ~$250 price tag leaves you a lot of room for a really good scope system and future upgrades. New trigger reminds me of the savage accutrigger. Adjustable with an Allen wrench. Corrected the main complaint about the gritty ruger factory trigger. Hopefully this change makes it back to the 10/22 world! It Takes 10/22 mags, so your not limited to 10 rds. Should get plugged into rugers extensive aftermarket support network pretty fast. So lots of upgrades in the works. A nice heavy varmit barrel and a scope on this would do what you want without breaking the bank. These upgrades are something that you can do yourself over time.

Two cheek pieces, one scope height, one iron sight height. Neat idea but when I buy one ill probably restock anyway.

The most accurate 22's out of the box would be an Anschultz,a Suhl 150 or a BSA Martini. Nothing else comes close!

Howdy,
I would suggest the new Ruger American rifle. I got mine for $269 at Academy Sports. I also have a Savage MK.II. The ruger is very close to accuracy with the Savage. I added a cheap 3x9 Tasco to the Ruger and it is amazing what it can do at 50 yards. Just my humble opinion but the Ruger is a great rifle. Have a goodun!!!!!!

Savage mkII or cz. Save the rest of the money for glass and ammo. Using my out of the box mkII TR I was able to hit the head of the nail holding the target at 100yards consistently. Actually drove it into the tree. There's hardly any wind were I shoot, I was using bulk box of Winchester 333, shooting off a picnic table with bags. If I had the extra $100 I'd have gotten a cz but I'm extremely happy with the accuracy and fit of the savage.

Go to Ruger.com - you'll see a variety of 10-22's and the tricked out models are approx $6-700. (.920 dia NM barrels, fluted, LT WT - ). Only limitations is usually the optics, person, ammo - in that order.

Savage rifles are known to be very accurate. I have several that I pull out when I want to hit something on the nose. That said, I'm disappointed in the model 64. Not the Mark II as mentioned earlier. Lot of ftf and stovepipes. The rifle shoots better than I can aim, but it is unreliable to the point where it now sits on the shelf. I have several 10/22s which are plenty accurate up to 100 yds.

Lots of people do make 100 yard shots with a 22 LR. 100 yard shots are a lot easier to make with a 22wmr. The 22LR drops around six inches at 100 yards. The wind can easily push a 22LR an inch in 100 yards. 100 yards is a straight shot for a 22wmr. The magnum also bucks the wind much better. Ammo quality is much higher for the wmr. Yes, 22LR bulk ammo is a lot of fun but you get what you pay for.

One of the reasons I'm looking to get a few 22Mag. Chambered Arms. I like the Excel Arms "Black Lightning," (that Mitchell's also sells). I've held one in my hands,..But with a $595 List,..(and the GS's Mark up,..we were talking 8 Bills....
Should have never sold my Kel-Tec Carbine,..but I got a Good few sheckels for it...
I'd like a Semi-Auto or Wheelgun to go with the Long Gun. Did that with 9MM. Liked MY Rock River AR In 9MM so Much I'm Ordering the "Pistol" version as soon as I can...
