22 Win Mag Suggestions???

Thinking of buying a 22 Win mag. Be used for squirrel, groundhogs etc. inside the 100 yard line.

Whats a decent bolt action out there without spending an arm & a leg?? Sharing of any 22 WMR ownership experience appreciated.

Thanks!!

Savage, Marlin, Mossberg, Cricket, CZ. Look to the used gun market.Check Pennswoods classifieds.

I had a Marlin and it shot really well. I free floated the barrel on it, shot different ammo until I found some that the rifle liked,and bought several hundred rounds.

I love my Ruger! Also my two hunting friends have Marlins, they are a great gun for the money.

On the low end Marlin bolt/clip; super accurate we have 4 in the family.
On a higher end CZ and you might take a look at The Browning T-blot, beautiful and accurate.

I have the el cheapo Savage and it is very accurate.May buy another so my kid will give mine back,He is getting really good with it though.He needs to slow down a bit.

Re: 22 Win Mag Suggestions???

I have, and have had several different 22 magnums. Including an Anschutz and a Kimber of Oregon rifle. As well as the Marlins. I had a Savage but got rid of it pretty quick.

However hands down, my go to 22 magnum is a Winchestr 9422 in 22 magnum. I just don't think you can beat a lever action in a rimfire rifle. Tom.
