What kind of results do you guys get out of your 10/22's ?
What is the furthers out you can shoot 1MOA ?

My Ruger 10/22 never ceases to amaze me. Absolute tack driver.
I haven't even shot it since I picked up my first black rifle about 8 months ago.
Decided to give my "old" favorite rifle a workout. After putting up sub-MOA groups
for about an hour, I got tired of shooting paper and put up some shell casings.
At 50 yards, I was able to hit 12GA hulls, 30-06 cases, and spent 5.56 brass at will.
I put up some of the spent .22 rimfire cases and actually pegged a few of them as well, but it took 2 shots for a couple of them.

Today was cheap bulk ammo, dont even remember what it was, remington I think.
I use CCI green tag if I am seriously looking to record a group, but mostly I shoot the cheap stuff.

I have a factory trigger, polished disconnector and sear, taken down to about 2 lbs.
Compensator, Simmons 4-16x44 AO scope, Harris bipod, and the rest is factory.

A 30-06 casing at 50 yards (optics rule!)


Best .22 I have ever owned, and in the top 5 guns I have owned

thats my 10/22. All volquartsen... barrel, trigger group etc. The stock is a McMillan

shoots about 1/4-3/8" groups at 50 yds.

I wanna build another 10/22 at some point, super light with a carbon fiber barrel and an aimpoint or other red dot sight.

8lbs? Ha..with the bipod and scope im up to almost 12!
Actually, the main reason I put the comp on the rifle was to protect the crown.
No other real reason for it. I take this rifle camping a lot and it gets tossed around, I didnt want the crown getting nicked up...and for $30, I got a permanent protector that I dont need to take off when I shoot, and it looks kinda cool as well!

Oh...nice setup on yours...what kind of barrel is that? The carbon fiber one?

Nice wood very nice gun

10/22 are fun guns, I think everyone should consider one for a SHTF hunter.
my current one has

whistlepig barrel
hogue stock
volq comp trigger 16oz
billet base and rings
burris 3-9x40 fullfeild II
claw sling
volq buffer and claw extractor
very very light, love to blast all day for under 20 spot....

I also have a savage mark II BV bolt, it a heavy bull barrel but it will shoot sub 1/2 @ 50 and MOA @ 75 It has the 2.5-10x42 tasco mil dot varmint with target turrent. I have less than 300.00
excellent shooter, I shoot sub sonics and you can barely hear the report, very stealthy
