Re: Which .22 caliber rifle?
Having just got back from the range with my son, I have to say I still prefer the Marlin 880SQ, even over the Ruger. My son prefers the 10/22, but hates loading the mags. In my opinion, the Marlin 880SQ is a lot more accurate than the Ruger and the group sizes at 40 yards prove it. Even though it's a bolt action it is a lot of fun to shoot fast as well as slow.
I've just ordered a match trigger for the Ruger, so we'll see how that compares once I get that installed.
