I curently have 2 squirrel rifles...1) Browning 22 with a 4 power Bushnell scope and 2) a Ruger 22 bolt action with a Tasco World Class 3X9. Both are very accurate for squirrel. I have taken a lot of squirrels over any years with the Browning and only purchased the Ruger a couple of years ago and is a tad more accurate which could be related to the 3X9 scope and my aging eyes.
One tip I might pass on for 22's and squirrels would be to find the ammo that shoots best in your gun. I have experimented with dozens of different 22 ammo and if your 22 is like any of the 8 I have owned they seem to like some ammo far better than others. Squirrels are small targets.
