I don't know what a clip is.

A magazine that can hold a decent amount of .22 rounds, but straight out of the box.

I just picked up a Browning T bolt with the composite stock and the 16.5" threaded barrel. This thing is nice

I prefer the term magazine, I don't know about anyone else. There's not a rifle that will be very accurate reliable and have a standard capacity magazine (20-30 rounds) for under 200$

Marlin 795.
$129-139 at any big-box store...usually on $99 special on Black Friday at Academy Sports/Dick's Sporting Goods/etc...

Mine eats CZ's at the range...and I've still got less than $250 in it even after new stock & pillar bedding...
It was dime & smaller sized groups at 50 yards before I started messing with it...
now its a one-hole performer at 25 & 50 yards if I do my part!!

25-rd mags made by Champion (grey follower) work great, have three of 'em...
the bedding definitely improved the mag function (removed all stock/action play) and the groups!!

My first rifle was a bolt action Savage MkII TR. It has a reputation for best out of the box bang for the buck accuracy. It was bought for long range ‘training’. It has a pod & a scope. It feels very good for ‘LR’ (100yds), but not so much for off-hand shooting at shorter ranges. I can get quarter sized groups with CCI Mini Mags at 70 yards. I’ve seen others do better. I haven’t tried it with subsonic ammunition at 100 yards yet.

My second was a Ruger 10/22 takedown. It was bought for off-hand shooting at shorter ranges. I’m keeping iron sights on it. It’s very fast and a LOT of fun to keep hitting a self-healing cube. I don’t think it’s as accurate as the Savage, but I've never scoped it.

They’re two different kinds of shooting.

I really like the Savage, especially its stock trigger as compared to the Ruger. That said, if I was to do it over I might consider getting two 10/22s. The Takedown 10/22 and the ‘Tactical’ 10/22. The 10/22s can be made much more accurate (with more money), and then I’d be able to use the same magazines and loader for either, significantly simplifying my range paraphernalia.

The 10/22s come in many flavors, can be modified to meet more differnt kinds of shooting than other choices, and can share more parts and accessories.

What 22 is best?
Do you mean what is "best" for your money, or "best" relative to quality of workmanship and accuracy?
In the low priced category, the Ruger 10-22 is the most popular choice, but you'll very likely wind up modifying it with after market improvements, if you're serious about target shooting.
At the high end of the price range; the Anschutz 54 is the clear choice, but "big bucks"!
You might want to seriously consider the CZ 452 as a compromise choice.
It sells new for between $425 to $450, and is very, very close to the Anschutz with regard to accuracy, and a very well made rifle.
It is a nicer rifle than the Ruger 10-22, or any of the Savage or Marlin types.

What about the Henry lever actions? Can you mount a scope on em? I'd prefer that over a bolt.

A lever! The man comes around!! Lol I'm not certain if you can right out of the box, but with the proper equipment it very well can be done.
