    I just recently bought one and I was wondering if some one that has one can tell me what they think of it. I've had other 22s that only accept one kind of ammo and jam up I'm hoping this isn't one of those

    Looks like you'll need to do a range report and let us know what you think. ;)

    Well just got back from the range. Its accuracy was awesome. Better then my bolt action. But it had a feeding problem. I was using federal 550 pack. Most the time it would eject the shell but I had to put recok it after every 3 or 4 rounds. It seems like the bolt was pushing the nose of the bullet Down and they were getting caught on the magazine. Then if it did get out of the mag it would get jamed up but the last four or five rounds would cycle fine. I'm cleaning it up now. Hopefully it won't continue. Does anyone else have this problem?

    It may work itself out.

    Savage 64

    I have one,bought it at Dicks in Leominster, Ma. Th rifle caught my eye because of the Beautiful piece of Tiger Stripped Birch it had for a stock. I bought it for that reason,I have never seen a stock like that on an average .22 rifle,just had to have it. BTW it shoots as nice as it looks!:) Cliff!
