Re: Best .22lr bang for the buck?
My dad has a ruger 10/22 and the clip jams if you put more then 5 bullets in it, bought a new clip 2 years ago and it did the same thing last year.
I have a savage .22 auto and the springs jammed after about 4 years and tons of ammo, even after totally cleaning about 250 rounds.
Bought a savage .22 bolt action synthetic stock. Looks kinda cheap but it is pretty acurate and only cost about $100. Empty shell occationally gets stuck if ya try to eject it really slow. Really good buy for the money. Bought it instead of buying a marlin .22 bolt wood, because she didn't want me to spend 170 on it. Didn't have a sling bolts either.
Old winchesters are really good guns also.
I have a marlin .22 mag bolt, never had a problem with it, just needs to be cleaned alot. (I have a huge scope on it) It is so acurate i was shooting chipmunks at 150-200 yards. At about 150-200 yards I can keep 10 shots all within a 2inch circle. Well worth $200, scope $150, caps $15, rings $30 bipod $60, laser/flashlight combo $50, and sling $25....
TOTAL= $530 .......and a box of ammo is $12
i know i don't need everything on it but i like it.
