    I am in the market for something better than my 10/22 and marlin 25N. Bolt or single shot does not matter, just accuracy and decent price. How well does the contender stack up against the bolt actions? I have a contender frame to use. Thanks

    The Savage MK II's are very good. Several sub-models in your price range. I'd certainly recommend you look at them.

    I to would recommend either the Savage MK II-BTV, or one of the MK II-FV's. These rifles are amazingly accurate, the MK II-BTV more so I feel. I gave my son one of these BTV's for Christmas and now it's all I can do to keep up with him on group size with my FV, which is no slouch for accuracy, but it's not a BTV... Fantastic rifle - those BTV's.:)

    You want a good target rifle or rodent killer the Remington 513-T is about the best tack driver you can get. These things are nice,You will have to shop around to find one cuz I dont think they are on the market anymore but I have seen a few at gun shows.

    Well MartinL, I see there are a lot of choices here. I myself have the Marlin 881 bolt that also think of being a good rifle as well.

    As long as you choose whatever is recommended here, I am sure you cannot go wrong. Good luck!:D

    What about just add a $150 Butler Creek .920" barrel and stock combo to your 10/22? I did that and my 10/22 is now a seriously accurate rifle with the right ammo. I topped it off with a 6-18 x 40 Adjustable Objective scope. It's just plain fun. I've got a Savage Mark II as well along with a Marlin Model 60 but the 10/22 is the most fun to shoot now that it can put the bullet where I point. :)

    The most accurate .22 I have ever seen or shot is a TU 33/40 sold by NCA Ridgefield, NJ. I bought one in the 80's and it is a Chinese (don't laugh) copy of a K-98 trainer in .22. It is BR50 quality and accuracy. I have a Nicoles 4X32 scope on it and I would wager it would shoot as well or better than any $400 - $500 rifle on the market. Beautiful workmanship and nicely finished. If I knew how to attach a picture of it would. I do not know if they are made or imported anymore.

    Can I get one for $400 or less? :confused: If not, I don't understand why you posted in this thread, i.e. Most Accurate 22lr rifle for under $400.

    Look forward to your reply.
