Wow. Way out of my range for doing serious shooting with a .22. I just like seeing what i can get outta mine with bulk ammo. Im happy to be hitting a 1 x 1 target at 200 feet. Ive never been one to take my time at the range and just shoot at 25-50 yard targets. To me its boring and not a realization that if i ever needed to hunt or pop someone (in defense) that allowing an object to be 25-50 yards away seems to close. I go for at a minimum of 100 yards with my FV-SR. I like the challenge.

It's out of most folks price range! I will eventually engage targets at 100 Yds. With both rifles,..but I'll need to add the TruGlo prismatic I have here for the 702 and I will put a more powerful traditional optic on the Ruger for my wife, who's eyes are worse then mine..
For anything over a Football field in distance, that's what I have Centerfires for....

I have a 30.06 that i have yet to get properly sighted. Not enough time for me and the range i go to is always crowded it seems.

Question (?) : What effect does barrel length have on accuracy in a .22 ?

The 10/22 that I have has a short barrel, a heavy trigger and if I shoot fast with high speed ammo, the stainless steel barrel heats up and tosses shots to the left . I use the stock bead & blade sights and don't set any records . I don't suppose I can use " combat accuracy " as an excuse this time .

The length of the barrel doesn't have a lot of effect on the mechanical accuracy the rifle is capable of. A shorter barrel of the same diameter is actually more rigid.

However, using open sights with a shorter barrel, also shortens your sight radius, which can make it harder to get the most accuracy out of the rifle.

With the 10/22 the way the barrel is mounted to the aluminum receiver can cause some problems as the gun heats up. With most center fire rifles people will try to free float the barrel to reduce influence of changing pressures against the barrel channel and changing harmonic vibration of the barrel as it heats up. With the 10/22, many owners find they are better off using a pressure pad in the barrel channel near the muzzle end to put some pressure in the barrel to keep it as consistent as possible. Some folks will actually glass bed the barrel channel and float the action, since it is made of aluminum and the opposite way would have the steel barrel suspended by the softer, lighter, aluminum receiver. Many owners also ditch their barrel band from the 10/22 also, or relieve it so that it doesn't actually touch the barrel and possibly influence the barrel as it heats up.

Ideally you want the barrel to have consistent pressure from cold shot to hot shots to prevent the walking you are describing.

I experimented with mine to find out it liked a pressure pad in the barrel channel toward the tip of the stock. Also, I relieved the barrel band so it wasn't touching the barrel.

It's not how I've spent the majority if my time with the 10/22, but it was a specific bit if experimenting I wanted to do to see just how much accuracy I could squeeze out of the stock parts. Finding the most accurate ammo was just one more variable in the experiment.

That 25 yd work, made longer shots at squirrels and rabbits more confident shots. It also gave a chance to practice those shooting fundamentals and drill my own shooting consistency into my own head.
