Ruger 10-22 target model
« on: August 31, 2020, 09:59:40 AM »
Anyone use one of these to hunt? Are they really more accurate than the bolt action or regular 10-22s?

if you bought 5 1022 targets, 5 standard 1022s and 5 7722s id bet the target guns would shoot a combined group smaller then the others. I had one and it was a great shooter. Ive had probably a half dozen standard 1022s and 2 7722s. The most accurate one was a plain jane off the shelf 1022 16 inch gun i bought at the buddys gunshop that i still own. Next would be the target gun (but its gone) the 7722s seem to be a tad more accurate then most standard 1022s but not by enough to show in the field. Maybe if your joy comes from sitting on a bench shooting the tiniest groups and you measure them with a caliper. But for wandering the woods id save some money and just buy a plain jane 1022. Good reason theyve sold so many of them. There probably the best 22 rifle ever made.
