A Savage FV series will do you wonderfully.  They run 2-400 depending on options (stainless, thumbhole stock, etc) but are stupid accurate.  10rd mags can be found all day also.

another one I like is the ruger 77/22 with a synthetic stock.

I really like the CZ rimfires, but I like the Ruger's shorter bolt throw and it's magazine just a little bit better. Figure it as a toss-up between the two.

Does anyone know if the Ruger 10-shot rotary mags for the 10-22 semi-auto are identical to the similar mags for the 77-22 bolter?  .22RF in both cases, naturally.  Would other, larger capacity mags originally intended for the 10-22 fit the 77.22?  I'm thinking here of butler creek mags, and new Ruger 25 rd mags.


The bottoms of the two mags are contoured differently but work in both rifles.  The 25 rounders work WONDERFULLY in a 77/22.  I have three of the rifles and love them!

Best is a relative term and my guess is you don't actually want one of the "best" bolt action .22's as you will be talking about $1k-2k+ rifles by companies such as Anschutz or Cooper, etc.

In the good value category (price vs. quality vs. accuracy) I'd generally say look at either Savage or CZ. I personally prefer CZ (by a long shot) but they do not make a stainless model. CZ does have their "Style" model which comes with a matte nickel finish but that's probably not what you are looking for? Savage does have some SS models but but I think you may be on to something with the Ruger 77/22? The Ruger is a very good rifle but doesn't get recommended much because it pails to the CZ and Savage in the price vs performance category.

That said, it is a very good rifle and has some unique features that I think play well into what you're looking for.

1. The are available in SS.
2. They are easy to remove or change barrels on if you decide you want to upgrade the barrel or have the factory barrel modified (cut down, threaded, etc.).
3. Their layout and controls match that of their bigger brothers so if you already have Ruger's 308 cal. scout rifle you then they can be setup very similarly.
3. Their flush fit 10 round mags are more snag free then the 10rd single stack mags of the CZ and Savage.
4. They can run high capacity mags designed for the 10/22 such as the BX-25 mag. Assuming that interests you then that is a big advantage that no other bolt action .22 can match.
5. I know XS sights has made scout rails for the 77/22. Getting one for the CZ or Savage may be harder or maybe not even possible?

I think the Ruger may be the way to go in this situation?

I will have to call XS sights and see if one of their Scout mounts will fit the 77-22.  If so, then the 77-22 will very likely be the one for me to get.

I don't know if it's a regularly stocked item but apparently they can and have made them... Ruger 77UL .308 and a Ruger 77/22 Scout Rifles by XS Sights

And you can convert it to 22 mag or 17 hmr by changing the barrel, trigger guard and magazine.

I'd agree with the 77/22 recommendations since you already have 10/22(s)

I'm thinking of going the same route if I ever get the itch for a bolt action .22

According to Monty, CS rep at XS sights, there is no scout mount, either in the past, or currently, that is configured for the 77-22.

Well obviously he's wrong because there are photo's to prove it but if you are happy with the other solution you mentioned then maybe that's the way to go?

The the last couple of years the 77/22 rifles no longer are slip fit barrels. Receivers are threaded. No easy change of barrels on the current ones.

Yup.  I'm a CZ guy, but I think that ruger does the magnum better.

That's what I mean.  Nicer bolt for the WMR also
