    Yeah, I'd probably be able to nail that little sucker with no problem.

    My 10/22 at 50 yards with Federal Bulk 550 from Walmart::eek:

    I use a Simmons 3 X 9 scope set at 6 power.

    Nice group snakedriver, here are a couple from my Rem 5 at 50 yds using Aguila golden eagle match rifle 40 gr. solids. I could shoot the hair off gnats arse with it...:D

    My Rem 5 is set up with a set of steel tip off rings from warne, and mounted with a Burris fullfield II 3-9X40mm. I set it to 6X for 50 yds and closer as well...;)

  9. [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]100 yard target, 10 shots fired in 12-25 mph winds a few days ago with Ruger 10/22 and Simmons 3-9x40 scope using Remington Golden bullets. Not the best 100 yard target but considering the ammo and the wind not bad. For squirrel I prefer 50' or closer. The little fellers move around a lot more than this stationary target did and my old peepers take awhile to find them and focus. .

    That's some real nice shooting too! One of these days I'll have to break down and spend a few extra bucks for some "match" ammo and see what my .22's can REALLY do, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with the way they do on the cheap bulk stuff as long as it's not Remington Golden Bullets. :D

    Nice thing(s) about .22 rifles...you don't have to spend a ton of bucks on the rifle (or the ammo) to have an economical, accurate, fun and easy to shoot set-up...I can still tack-drive with the old Remington "511-X Scoremaster" my dad gave me for a (best) Christmas present many many! years ago. I never even "shot my eye out" with it, either like in the evergreen old movie A Christmas Story. I know- that was a Red Ryder BB gun!

    As I've aged and got more disposable dollars- I've gravitated toward the Czech Republic's fine CZ rifles; both rimfire and CF. But the old Remington still cracks them off just fine. Good luck to the OP in your selection/ .22 rimfire shooting will always be one of the simple pleasures of life, huh guys?

    Bob:)

    Bob, I still have my old Remington 512 Sportmaster bolt action that my Dad gave me when I was 10 y.o. and what a great .22 rifle it is. Awesome accurate and fun for all to enjoy. :)

    Snake-- sounds like we both had pretty good Dads, eh?:) I still sure miss mine-- he was gone way back in 1996 and I try to honor him in what he tried to teach me; sportsmanship, honesty, ethics, and last but not least-- straight shooting!;) Our old Remingtons will probably outlast us- the stock is a little small for me now, but I still roll it out once in awhile for ventilating a few cans and bottles out in the Desert---he also taught me to "clean up my messes," haha!
