Re: whats the best 22 automatic rifle?
It depends on the ammo. My Marlin 25N does not like Federal's plated bullets. It will hold tight groups with Winchester Wildcats, but loosens up if I switch to Remington thunderbolts or lightnings. If I spend the money on CCI Stingers I can hold MOA groups all day long, but I'd go broke doing it. What ever you decide on try all the varieties of ammo and see what fits your gun the best.
