Default Target 22

I am looking at buying a new rifle, I want a bolt action, heavy barreled 22. What are any recommendations? I would like to stay around $300 but I am open to whatever. I'm not looking at shooting competitions I just want something accurate. Also I am open to scope recommendations preferably around $100. Thanks

The CZ-452 series is very nice. Also, kimber makes some nice bolt action .22s

hard to beat a bolt action Savage rimfire in that price range. my M93r17 is very accurate when i do my part. they also offer this one as the M93 which is the 22lr version with a heavy barrel option.

i have had mine for almost ten years now and still enjoy shooting it. the only gripe i had about the M93r17 is when i bought mine, the only heavy barrel version had the synthetic stock and the LOP was bit short for me. i ended up putting a Boyd's laminated Varmint Hunter stock on it that made a world of difference in the way the rifle felt when shouldered.

95sniper,

I have been shooting in 22 and CF rifle competitions for almost 60 years.

We shoot the 22 indoors all winter at 50 ft. In the warmer weather we also shoot outdoors at 50 & 100 yds.

The standard rifle was the Winchester M52 with some using the DCM Springfields. Today the Anschutz has taken over with some other lesser brands.

Instead of buying a rifle on an impulse go to a match, rifle range or club and see what they are using. Target shooters are very friendly and want you to shoot with them.

Someone my lend you a rifle to try or sell you one right there.

Here is a link to the NRA website on where to find competition near you.

Those are some crazy looking rifles, and a nice range. I will look at the cz, the kimber, and the savage. Unfortunately there isn't a range close by where I live and the ones that are are mainly pistol.

Good advice. WITHIN YOUR PRICE RANGE, would be hard to beat one of the Savge 93s in .17 HMR.

I also have a few OLD .22 target rifles- Mossberg 44's and 46B models. I have shot 5 round 1 hole groups at 50 yards with both (match ammo, benchrest, no wind) There are good scope mounts available for the Mossbergs from Havlin Sales.

My Savage was the first thumbhole stock rifle I have owned. Thought it was a tad strange, but I like it.

Those are some pretty rifles, they are probably hard to find now though.

IMO, your best bet for the price would be a savage. BTW can they fit anymore people on that firing line?
