Ruger 77/22 topped with the nikon .22 dedicated scope.
Ruger 77 as well! I put a VX I on mine (found it on sale for under $100), but going with the Nikon or even a redfield scope would be prime...
What do you awhat do you all think of the Savage 5 + 1 22 Long Rifle w/AccuTrigger/Scope/Blue Barrel/Black Synthetic Stock
SAV 29200 MKII-FVXP 22LR AT W/SCP
I have a simmion's 22 MAG scope with adjustable parallax (sp?) on my CZ 452. I haven't shot it much at 100 yards, but at 50 I know it will leave a ragged hole, so I'm sure it will be Minute of Coke can at 100.
10/22 ruger with 4x nikon will be reasonably inexpensive and very accurate for the money. Under $400 is pretty cheap.
A hundred yards isn't plinking.
The average CZ 452 shoots like the best but costs around $400. You will pay $1000 - $2000 for anything that shoots better. With good ammo and optics, you can shoot house flies at 100 yards as long as the wind isn't blowing. This rifle is made for serious shooting though... not just plinking.
Thanks for the answers!
With all the comments above, is the Ruger 77/22 in your opinion the best durable, free floating 22 around.
I have read about the SAVAGE combo packages.
Soooo... much information to digest.
Have a great Memorial Day to all
For the scope I am assuming that you don't want to pay 100's for a .22 scope so I say for plinking buy a BSA Sweet .22 scope, it has range estimation turrets for .22lr of .36, .38, and .40 gr. bullet weights. I could hit a squirrel at 70 yards with it, and an old lawn mower muffler at ove two-hundred, though it was not very practical.
