I'd go with the Savage if it was #1 a bolt gun #2 had the accu-trigger (and for the price you stated I'd say not). The bottom end MKII Savage rifles while pretty accurate have a funky, gritty trigger. The 10-22 in this case would be the better gun.

I've got a Ruger 10/22 with the M1 Carbine Conversion Stock, and Tech 100 Sights on it. Absolutely incredible Rifle! It now fires more accurate, than it did out of the Box.

For a Bolt Action Single Shot, I have a Savage Mark II BTV. An incredibly accurate Shooter as well!

Either way you go, Ruger or Savage, you just can't beat the quality and reliability!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

BB

+1 on the Marlin 60. I've had mine for around 25 years and its still accurate and reliable as it was when new. Great price as well.

Default Savage vs Ruger

The savage for what its worth is a good shooter, its limited what you can do with it for aftermarket add-on's, the Ruger has potential if you want to make it accurate, Out the box new the savages I'd seen out shot the std ruger carbines on paper, the 10/22 with a better aftermarket barrel and trigger tune kit will do what the savage does out the box.

I like the hunting/shooting quality of the older marlin model 60's.

If you into shopping round try a classic all steel rimfire Taurus model 63 TD.
The Taurus Model 63 is a faithful reproduction of the classic John Browning auto- loader right down to the blue steel butt plate.

For semi-auto 10/22 is THE rifle to have for all of the reasons you have read here.

I do really like Savage, though. I love my Mark II bolt-action for hunting.

I just use my 10/22 for lots of fun plinking. If I am going to do actual work, I pull out my Savage. The Mark II, though is a lot more expensive than you model you're talking about and a little more than the 10/22.

For target shooting I would get the savage. I am guessing it is the MKII F? I have that same rifle and enjoyed shooting it so much I bought the BVT version as well. They are both very accurate. I did not mind the trigger at all on the MKII F.

With saying that I am now looking at getting a 10-22. I am doing this more for a tinkering rifle. I know it will end up costing me about $700 for what I want in the end.

If you do not plan on spending too much money I would buy the savage for now. With scope for my MKII F I paid about $210 and have a fun target rifle.
