10-22, if for no other reason you can get an amazing array of aftermarket parts for it. Very reliable as well. Just ordered a Williams peep sight for mine: bunnies beware!

I wouldn't even believe that even if you said scoped. Bulk .22lr is not able to do that consistently.

I don't know why everyone is suggesting a 10-22 when the OP asked for the best accuracy out of the box. Dollar for dollar the 10-22 is not going to beat a well regarded bolt action. Not knocking the 10-22, it's a legend in it's own regard. Now if he had said the best accuracy out of the box semi-auto .22lr I can see people suggesting the 10-22. JMHO.

I shoot empty brass cases all the time at that range give or take with all of my 22's including my 10/22. They have a smaller diameter than mints. That's with bulk Federal 510, CCI Mini mags, Federal Auto Match, American Eagle, Remington Viper, whatever. I don't hit them every time but I do hit them consistently. My scoped Savage MkII can hit them every time if I do my part. Its really not that hard.

I wouldn't even be able to see a peppermint or brass case at 70 yards. I guess I need to go to the optometrist.

And you can tell 70 yards away that you actually hit the brass case rather than the dirt around it??

I don't want to take this away from the OP's original intention. I stated my peace, I just didn't want someone coming here and thinking that he/she could win the olympic shooting match with a 10/22 and federal bulk ammo (and i know that's not what you said, I'm exaggerating my point). Not here to ruffle feathers, just pointing out I can't achieve that with those circumstances.

But, I would side with everyone in this thread that talked about buying a solid bolt action depending on how much you want to spend, I would spend the most you can afford on a well regarded rifle such as those older Winchesters or an Anschultz if you so desire and have the wallet for.

I don't shoot at them on the ground and to see if I hit them I just walk down there and see. Like I said, its really not that big of a deal. Lots of trigger time with my guns and a ton of lead down range. My kids couldn't hit them either but my brother could. I agree that for the most part a bolt action is more accurate. I have a Remington 510 Targetmaster single shot bolt action that was my grandfathers and I grew up shooting it. Its very accurate and I would love to see how well it would shoot with a scope. My lever action Henry is also a good shooter.

I vote for CZ or Savage. I have both. I also have a Ruger 77/22. Not sure why people are recommending that one. High price, and you usually don't see the word accurate associated with the 77/22. Although there is a guy who can change that, I hear.

I also don't get all of the recommendations for the 10/22 when the original post was what is THE MOST accurate .22 OUT OF THE BOX.

I love the 10/22. If the questions was what is the best general purpose .22 rifle out of the box, you'd have a winner in the 10/22.

If I wanted to win medals or money with accuracy I'm going with a bolt gun though.

Yes the shooter will have to be highly skilled and practiced to get the competition level of accuracy out of any rifle, but if the stakes are there and you had the same shooter shoooting against himself. I would wager, he'd do better with a match built bolt gun than an out of the box 10/22.

My marlin 60 has stitched an impressive line on a shoot-n-see target at 100 yards without real effort on my end...I won't need any .22 to be any more accurate than that...

I once asked my gunsmith what was the difference between a $500 bolt action and a $1K plus Anschultz ? He said about 30 hours of individual, hands on attention by someone like him & better barrel.

Whie it is certainly possible to get a mass produced gun that is accurate - you increase your odds when you buy a higher quality product.

What is my definition of accuracy - to shoot within the performance limits of the ammunition.

My issue w stock 10/22s - barrel bands - never known a tgt gun that had one.

If you want to find out what the accuracy standards for a given rifle before you buy - call the CS dept of the company and ask them what the stds are for you to return the rifle if it doesn't perform.
