Re: Best Accurate 22 Hunting Rifle

I imagine you can get a cheap savage or Marlin to shoot better than some high end .22's.It's almost always a crap shoot of some sort.I've had some very accurate Marlins and I had an accurate CZ American.I had some little issues so I traded it on a Ruger 77/22.I honestly had low expectation for the ruger but it's a tack driver with cheap target ammo.As far as scopes,I put a Nikon rimfire scope on it.

CZ trainer with a 28" barrel, 6 x 18 scope, drives tacks. Bought it at Hornicks years back fir $175.00 , guy won it and didn't want it.

I picked my son up a Stevens bolt action rifle and topped it with the 2.5X-8X Universal scope off of his great grandfather's deer rifle. That thing is ridiculously accurate. After I zeroed it, I was piling shots almost in the same hole at 25 yards. I have a whole $139.00 in it.

My bolt action 22mag marlin is pretty acurate out to 150 yards.

Henry .22 is a tack driver with4X Leupold. Put it and the workmanship against the "big names" and will come out ahead. Plus 100% American made and parts!

I have had two Ruger Model 77/22 22 rimfires. One the standard walnut stock/blued sporter and the other the All-Weather model with the laminated stock, matte stainless steel metal and the heavy barrel. They are both TACK drivers. The heavy barreled model is my favorite squirrel rifle. It sits under a Leupold Vari X II 4x12 AO. It does it's best work with Rem. 38 gr. sub-sonic HP ammo.

I don't know if i got lucky with mine but my xt-22 that i bought a year or two ago from dunhams for 150 bucks is a tack driver. The trigger on it for the price is amazing.

My dads old Sears & Roebuck 22lr single shot (made by Marlin) will consistently group at about .5 inches at 50 yards which has led me to slay hundreds of squirrels with it. What else do you use a 22lr for? haha

I use a Ruger 77/22 and it's my favorite 22 and one of my favorite guns. It is very accurate and a good looking gun.

If you want to hit a tin can at 50yds get a Winchester or a Remington.If you want to hit a dime get an Anshutz.Every man should own one perfect rifle,"ANSCHUTZ"
