Have never shot the Savage but we have put thousands of rounds through our Ruger and we love it.

10/22 Semi-auto vs. MkII bolt action? (Disclosure, I've got a MkII TR)

What I've read is: You can get and do all kinds of things to a 10/22. You can probably find 10/22 stuff in just about any gun shop. It's really customizable without requiring a gunsmith. Not so much with the Savage.

The 10/22's not as accurate out of the box as a MkII, but it wasn't meant to be a tack driver. I don't think it's too fussy about ammunition and a .22lr is a small round to power a semi. That says alot. That being said, there's a guy on You Tube hitting targets at 400y with a mostly stock 10/22! I think it's an 18" target through. You can make 10/22 very accurate by spending more money on stuff. Before you do you should price it out and compare the $ to a CZ, which I've read is very good too. Better than the Savage, but cost more than a Savage too.

There aren't as many after market items available for the MkIIs. They do come in a variety of flavors for different kinds of shooting, but not anywhere near as many as the 10/22. There is no 'Take Down' MkII for instance. The MkII trigger is very nice.

Ammunition will probably make a bigger difference than any inherent difference in accuracy.

The biggest thing through is;
Do you want a semi-auto or a bolt action? With a semi you can keep your cheek on the stock, eyes on the target, hand on the rifle, and your finger on the trigger for you next shots. With a bolt you have to change and reacquire your position to some extent for each shot.

I've got both a Ruger 10/22 AND a Savage Mark II SS with fiber optic sights. Two different rifles for two different purposes.

Ruger 10/22: plinking, customizable for tactical fun, high capacity

Savage Mark II: hunting, forces the shooter to slow down and work on fundamentals for each shot

Buy both. Just pick which one comes first. I bought the Savage first but YMMV.

Do you drive an automatic or a stick? Which do you prefer?

Question resolved then...but when looking at Bolt-action, take a look at the new XT22 from Marlin as well...
Micro-groove barrels paired with adjustable target triggers tend to do NICE things
Just ask Defcon!!
