"they have a new quiet 22lr, it won't cycle the auto loader, but it is great for sniping squirrels in town"
Are you speaking of Colibri's ? Super Colibri's ?
I have Volquartsen modded 10/22's and Tony Kidd's and Randys'.....
I really don't remember exactly what the 'stock' ones were like,
except they were very acceptable.
So are my Marlin 60's.....
but definitely the best out of the box is my Marlin 39D
Ammo is KEY to/for any .22lr and it's accuracy, bar none !
Plinking, ammo cost, rifle mods, manufacturer, etc. is what
you and your wallet are willing to let go of when you speak
of accuracy and rimfire ammo............
you never know what the round is made of, therefore you never
know what you will be shooting........even with a box of 50rnds
for $16...........how could you ?
So, the answer would be....do the most to be prepared on your end,
and hope and pray they [ammo mfg] do the best on their end.
Answer to your [thread question]......ALL of my 10/22's are very,very,
very accurate, compared to most others that I shoot against in
competition or for fun......and friends have 10/22's that are far
superior to mine.......
On another note, for comparison, the rounds I load myself for the
center fire .22's beat the dog-s**t out of accuracy of any 10/22.
I hope this confuses you royally, although it was not my intent.
buy/purchase a Ruger 10/22 [carbine or Charger]
on the merit of the gun itself.....???? [was that the ? ][info for those that come]
Why, HELL YEAH......!!!!!!!!!!
And you can do so much with one [$$$]......to the point
that it ain't even a 10/22 anymore !
