I've been in the AR world for a while, skeet shooting occasionally, handgun self defense shooting for practice pretty frequently and recently getting into precision shooting… but what I've never been exposed to is the world of .22lr… I'm looking for a .22lr so i can spend the whole day at the range without spending my whole paycheck at the range… so i'll tell you what i'm looking for and post some questions so you can answer accordingly… …I APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL HELP FROM YOU GUYS HERE AND PLEASE EXCUSE MY UNWILLINGNESS TO DO RESEARCH TO FIND THESE ANSWERS... I am looking for a HIGH END .22lr…not something cheap or even average. i like to buy very high quality parts/firearms because i plan on owning these things for life and passing them down to children/grand children, etc. I'm willing to spend around $1,000…this may seem like a lot, but today i was at my LGS and saw some for over $800 (and that was without optics!) I want something NOT for plinking, but rather something for precision shooting…So i'll want it drilled and tapped for a scope or have a picatinny rail on it. You may find it odd, a .22lr for precision, but its something i enjoy...(and precision shooting with my big boy bolt actions is just getting too expensive) I'd prefer a bolt action .22lr, but i'd settle for a semi auto if its proven to be just as accurate and reliable... let the questions begin… 1. what is an acceptable range for a .22lr to be accurate out to? 200 yards? 300? 500?! 2. what sort of groupings can be expected of an accurate .22lr? is sub MOA reasonable to expect out of a higher end .22lr? 3. what are the names of some manufacturers that make higher end .22lr rifles? and can you possibly name some specific models that might fit my needs? 4. I've only ever shot bulk .22lr ammo. is there such thing as match grade .22lr ammunition? and what is the average price of a 100 round box for this match grade ammo? 5. what features/benefits do you get from paying for a high end .22lr rifle compared to the extremely popular Ruger 10/22? …I'll post more questions later. thanks!
