Ruger 10/22 vs. Savage Mark II SV-FR
 
I want a new .22 but am torn between these 2 models. My son has the ruger which is the carbine with a nice scope and is deadly accurate at 150 yards and very reliable. I've been reading that the Savage is an even more accurate out of the box bolt action rifle. Both are around the same price

So what's the better rifle? I don't plan on any more upgrades than a decent scope and bipod. I know ruger has a ton of upgrade options and that doesn't concern me. I want a reliable, accurate rifle at a price under $300.

They both are great rifles but what do you prefer bolt or semi

hareebrownbeest 09-25-2012 08:19 PM

I guess the bolt. You tend to use less ammo, jams are not as common, and bolts tend to be more accurate correct? I've never owned a savage before so I have no knowledge of their products. I was also looking at the Remington 527? But read a bunch of bad reviews on it. I don't want that although it's a nice looking rifle.

I'm sorry, the Remington 597. Good looking .22 with a nice barrel but bad reviews:(

I would take the 10/22 over the 597 but then agian I like bolt actions over semis because they dont jam up as much and they can take more abuse and tend to be more accurate with a good scope

See what your son has tied up in his accurate 10/22 and his groups size at 100 yards. Then compare priceing knowing you will want a wood stock and metal work down the road. The fv-sr will or should shoot sub-moa groups with 7 to 10 dollar a box ammo like wolf me and sk rm or federal 911A. You can make an old better 10/22 into what you want and it may shoot better with a one of a few 190dollar + barrels but not when comparing dollar for dollar invested. I have fv-sr restocked with a boyds stock and a bv and also a couple well customized 10/22's all are about equal in accurracy with the rugers being faster and simplier to shot 10 rounds in that you don't have to come out of the rifle as you do with a bolt rifle. Both can do the job. You will need to shoot up to 500 rounds from a savage barrel before it tight'ns up fliers.

I think I'm leaning towards the savage. I got a Daisy model 2022 that I'm going to trade towards a purchase. I wonder what I can get for it. It works good but I'm missing the magazine.

That's nice. That's most likely what I'd be going for.
