My Ruger 10/22 shoots 2.5 inch groups at 100 yards right out of the box, with maybe 4 rounds to sight-in. That's with the cheap-ee Simmons 4x scope it came with. I am pretty sure if I put some time into it, I could get the grouping down to an inch. Paid $275 for the combo at Gander Mountain last month.

The barrel is 16+" and is threaded for a suppressor or flash hider or muzzle brake. I added the cheek riser. It was shooting 5 shot sub .5" at 25 yards.

The Savage will be far more accurate than the 10/22. Mine was tested at the factory to shoot .7" at 100 yards. I'll post a copy of that target. The Ruger is a fine rifle but it's a much different rifle. If you just want a good semi-auto that shoots more accurate I'd suggest getting a Marlin 60 anyway. They are almost always more accurate than a stock 10/22 and yes I've compared brand new 60's against brand new 10/22's more than once. The Marlins always win.

But of course you didn't ask about that. Here's the target Savage sent me as a test target. I've shot sub MOA groups at 100 yards with that rifle too. But this one was done by Savage techs.

The 10/22 magazine hold 10 rounds and is flush with the stock. My 10 round Savage magazine sticks out of the bottom and gets in the way of my support hand when I shoot standing. I have to use the 5 round magazine then.

I found a place that will take my Daisy 2022 towards a purchase of one from their shop. I'm going to head down and see what they offer me.

My son has the ruger and it shoots great and is reliable too. It's between the ruger and the savage, I like the Remington also...only for its looks and barrel, the savage also comes with a nice barrel, oh man this is tuff ha ha.

The Savage in my opinion is a superior rifle.Have one in Stainless it is awesome! I have two 10-22's and they collect dust.My go to rifle is a Marlin 60.Cliff

The marlin 60 to me looks kinda out dated, I'm sure it's a nice rifle but I don't think they would even allow it in California due to its ammo capacity. My uncle used to have one and it would take out ground squirrels all day long. I think I want to go with the bolt action also. Save ammo.

It's a personal thing I guess but I absolutely hate those Ruger round mags. That's one of the biggest reasons I prefer a Marlin 60. But the Savage is a bolt action with a box mag that will hang down if you use the 10 round mags. The 5 round mags don't hang down as you said. I guess that could be a deal breaker for some but the rifles are just so different I can think of 100 different reasons for preferring one over the other. It boils down to whether you want a bolt action that's really accurate or a semi-auto that's pretty accurate IMO. But the OP said he has a $300 limit so that leaves out any major upgrades to the Ruger. So IMO the Marlin 60 would be a better choice if he wants to go with a semi-auto. Of course he might change his mind down the road. That's why the real answer is (always) get both or all three or 10 or 12. I have so many rimfires it's ridiculous. I like them all for one reason or another. That first rifle should be free anyway. You know how they give heroin out to kids for free until they get hooked. They're gonna hook you anyway. It only seems fair that the first few rifles should be free.

BTW I think the 60 is allowed in Californistan. I saw some guy go through the process of checking them out for CA just recently. It was something about the mag not being removable or something. But don't take my word for it. I'm no lawyer and I've never been to Californistan.
