Re: Which .22 caliber rifle?
get any of the ohter rifles you want, including a thompson center, or a cz. the last two will be the most money, the most accurate, and the most beautiful.
Then go to a gunstore or a pawnshop or a gunshow. Find your self a nice marlin mod 60 for 50 to 80 bucks. Clean her up, fill the tube with 14 rounds, and let her rip. It will be the most accurate, if the cz or t/c doesn't beat it out, but the thing is, it will be a minus 100 dollar gun , you can keep as a beater, and it will be accurate. Otherwise, get a bolt action marlin tube fed, any of the 81 series. the new 981's are 150 dollars, and will hold 25 shorts in the tube at one time! so fine.
