Just getting started they will all shoot better than you can. Not much difference between the 60 and the 10/22, either one will do the job. I have more than one of each in my rimfire collection. For just a few more bucks you can get a Savage that has a lot of the mods you would eventually want already done. They come with a stainless twisted fluted heavy barrel, accutrigger, and a Boyds Evoluiton laminated stock that makes the barrel free floating.. You are looking at over 350 dollars in upgrades that are already done for you. The one I have now is a .17 but I plan on getting one in .22LR and one in .22 Mag when funds permit. Nice rifles.

Here's a sample of what a Savage MkIIBTV will do at 50 yards. This is a 5 shot group. It won't do it every time but it will get close to it often. 4 shots went into the hole at the end of the triangle. The whole group measured .2"

Here's a few more groups from the same rifle, same distance, all 5 shot groups. My best group with my Savage is .111" (5 shots at 50 yards) and I've shot .118" also.

And here's a group I shot at 90 yards with my Marlin. This is only 3 shots but I've shot other groups like this one.

And just for good measure here's a 5 shot, 50 yard group I shot with my CZ:

I have more but this should be enough to prove my point.
Nice shooting Tex!

I'm picking up my Savage Mark II FV-SR Monday. I've got the 10/22 carbine equipped with a bushnell 3x9x32 on it and it's deadly at 100 yards, can't wait to put the Savage up against it. I got a 4x40 Mil dot scope for my Savage, I'll give y'all my honest comparison.

There is a good reason the Ruger 10-22 is the most popular rimfire rifle ever made. I just picked up their latest takdown version which is a really neat rifle. While at my dealers he had another on the wall. Turned out to be a 60s version that was pre warning and had a real walnut stock. The thing was beautiful so it too came home with me. Ruger over the years has made a lot of changes to the 10-22, most having to do with cost cutting. The early rifle had an anodized not painted receiver and all metal parts, unlike what they are churning out now. Still for the money and all the variations it's a hugely popular rifle and will continue to outsell everything else.

Weatherby makes a few really nice 22 rifles but I'll still take a 10/22 over anything else.

No, its not. They've only sold 7.8 million 1022's since 1963.
Marlin has sold over 15 million model 60's since 1960.
The 1022 is the most popular to accessorize...(read that as works better with other people's parts in it)

Due to the generally questionable quality of the 1022, it created a TON of cottage industries...
as folks figured out they could make better parts than Ruger does...which, really ain't that difficult...got a mill??
you can literally build a 1022 with No Ruger Parts!! and it will perform better than anything Ruger builds!!!
Just ask Volquartsen

Ruger basically went with the Microsoft business theory...build a worse version of someone else's idea (Apple),
then let everyone and anyone make support items to make it better without licensing restrictions...
ends up making a ton of money for putting out an inferior product...pretty slick, huh?

The 1022 didn't really take off until it got popular to buy & sell stuff on the internet,
between that & the gun boards which allowed folks to learn to fix 'em...
next thing ya know, the 1022 has a support system which rivals that of Microsoft Windows...

But they still ain't sold the most semi-auto .22lr rifles...

Arguing over a .22

Really?

I picked up a 10/22 because there was a sale. I like it just fine. FOR A .22. I'm sure the others mentioned would be just fine. But really, how much spirited debate should there be for a plinker? A pellet gun on steroids? What I find even more puzzling is the trend to make these look like paramilitary assault rifles. I guess there is that chance we get overrun my an onslaught of squirrels or jackrabbits......

Sorry, just had to rant a little lol. Buy one and shoot it. Enjoy it for what it is.

Simply put, they're fun, cheap, easy to upgrade and are a building block rifle. Also like mentioned are the military styles, cool factor to own something that our military uses, something not everyone experiences.
