10-22's are great rifles, the main problem with them is the cost to really get them to shoot. It's pretty easy to spend $800 to $1000. for a real tac driver.
I know, I have one and have spent a lot of money on it.
I bought a Savage BRJ, had it accurized for $225.00 by SavageGunsmithing
I have maybe $600. max into it and it will outshot every 10-22 I've seen. Someone with $1000. or more may give it a run for the money, but that's a lot of ammo or a very good target scope.
I shoot Wolf MT, it likes it the best and is an inexpensive match ammo.
I shoot .1" groups on a very regular basis (in decent shooting conditions), 5 shots @ 50 yds and about 5 weeks ago, I shot a perfect 5 shot group @ 50 yards, .222".
No saying the Ruger is not a fine rifle, only pointing out there are alturnitives, for less Money and it's something different, which is something I like.
Many people buy the TR model as it's more of a benchrest stock.
Go to Savages web site and look at all they offer. All heavy barreled models are the same with the exception of the stocks.
One last reason. If you have a problem with a Ruger and it's been modified, Ruger will remove all non stock parts or refuse to work on it, Savage does not care, they will repair a problem and unless something is unsafe, leave your modifications alone. I have also found Savage to give the best customer service of any gun company.
Just something to chew on, John K
