Recomendations for accurate 22
I'm looking for a bolt action 22

Marlin xt22, savage, Remington, cz, ruger and mossberg all make good rifles.

Sort of like I am looking for a fast car. Really? HOW fast??? Over here we have a Focus, a Fusion, a Corvette, a NASCAR stocker, and a AA fueler dragster. How much did you want to spend?

Marlin and Mossberg make nice reliable hunting grade rifles. For a bit more money, Savage 93. For more money, a CZ. For more money, a Remington 40X, or a Winchester 52 International Match.

Accurate can mean hitting tin cans at 50 yards, or hitting aspirin tablets at 100 yards. You need to tell us a bit about what you want to do.

PS- I have a few Mossberg target rifles from the 1940s. Tack drivers. I also do not want to carry those barbells disguised as rifles for an afternoon of squirrel hunting- they are heavy as hell, and made to shoot in a supported position.

Good questions generate good answers. So help us out here.

I have a Savage MK-II BTV, with the Accu-Trigger. I haven't had a chance to get it out to the Range yet (Raining the last couple of weeks...), and try it out.

I did a LOT of Research on it before I - pardon the pun - "Pulled the Trigger", but I'll find out just how accurate it is, hopefully by next week.

Prior to buying the BTV, I had been looking for a Savage MK-II FVSR, also with the Accu-Trigger, but couldn't find one anywhere. By doing a Search for the Model NUMBER, instead of the Model NAME, I managed to find one last night! It's already in "SHIPPING" Status, as of today. Can't wait to get it!

Do some Research on the Savage Line, and see if they will meet your needs. I opted for the Savage Brand, because the Accu-Trigger is Adjustable from 2.5 to 6 Pounds. That, and the Heavy Barrel they offer.

Best of Luck, and Please let us know what you find out there. We'd be interested to see what ends up on your "Short List"!

Your budget and the use you will have for the gun matter in this question. You can buy 15 lb. bolt action bench rest .22's but they aren't much good for hunting unless you're hunting p'dogs from a portable bench.

as said, budget as to how much you would like to spend and what your definition of accurate can help us make better suggestions as to what might fit your needs or wants.

you can spend a couple of hundred and have a really good squirrel rifle at 50 yards, or couple thousand and have a match shooter that will leave a one hole group at 100 yards.

For about $275 ($170 + $25 transfer fee + $75 scope) I put together a Savage Mark II FV that can do this at 100 Yards:

And this at 50 yards:

I'm sure there are plenty of rifles that can do better but I'm betting they would cost a bit more.

But really, i just purchased this rifle based upon the MANY great things ive heard about savage. It seems all of their 17/22lr/22mag rifles receive amazing reviews all across the board. You cant go wrong with them.
