    General target shooting, what kind of groups do you get at 50 yards. Is the balance good. Going to put it on a butler creek hot legs bipod stock.

    I have two of each mounted and prefer the non-ported(but these are hunting rigs, so less report is required) These barrels will produce sub 1/2" @ 50 yards, depending on what ammo your receiver likes, balance, I`m not sure of your real intent..in this question. If you use a bi-pod...it`s not going to matter in this rifle. To give you an idea of weight, my non-ported barrel(carbon), in a Butler Creek .920 Target stock with all titanium internals, with a 6x16x40 scope...rings the scales at just under 7lbs loaded with a sling and scope caps. The same rifle in a steel 20" BC barrel weights almost 9 lbs. I have machined a few thousands off the bolt on mine, for a very tight headspace, depending on the ammo used; each one is built for specific ammo use....except one. Each will deliver sub 1/2" @50 yards. The ones I max out, with the non-ported barrel will shoot 1/4" with match ammo....all day long. If you like the 10/22 and have the time......the fun never ends. I have a custom 24" .825 steel barrel that will group 3/8" @75..W/Eley on a calm day.....but it`s to heavy to hump for hunting. Remember these BC Carbon barrels are really 17" not 18".......so there preety darn good for the length. LTS

    Thanks for the info, I'm in the process of customizing my ruger. Next step is working on the trigger.
