Not to sound like a rifle snob , but if you want a really effective target rifle, you need to buy a top-of-the-line Anschuetz, Feinwerkbau or Walther.

My vote is Feinwerkbau (love the trigger), but they are hard to find.

How about a CZ-452?

What kind of match shooting do you want to do? If it's real deal pull out all the stops competition, you better look at Anschutz, Feinwerkbau (sp?) etc.
If it's more casual, spend yer money on a CZ 452 Varmint or American. I have a Varmint and the damn thing SHOOTS!! 5 shot groups w/ Wolf MT into a nice Quarter-Nickel size group at 100 yds all day long. I haven't done a dman thing to it either and they have a nice adjustable trigger. I think they're the best value in a .22 out there.
You also might want to look on Gunsamerica.com for an H&R M12. It was a HEAVY target rifle used by the AMU in the ealy '80's. The CMP doesn't have any more but you can find 'em used. I got mine NIB w/ palma sights for $500 (New Palma's go for $250 alone). It's not hard to find ones NIB as many guys buy CMP stuff and never open it (not me). The thing is a real gem and shoots even better than the CZ.
The 10/22 is a great platform, but you can get lured into the "modification" syndrome and by the time you get it shooting to a comparable level, you could've bought an Anschutz etc. in the first place.
Later,
Rich

W/O spending the $1200 for Anschutz & Walther's, you can get a damn fine match .22 in a Marlin 2000 biathlon rifle. It already comes equipped with everything you need so you don't have to add this or that. Price is around $400. Check out Marlin's web site for pics & info.

Also check out Champions Choice as they specialize in target shooting. Sinclair also is another bunch who focuses on very small target groups. >gg<

Hope this helps.
