Buy a Marlin or a Savage or a CZ. Should be in your price range.
buy a marlin I have one my brother has one and my friends have one. The will drive tacks.
I like the Savage, nice shooting gun for the price.
Try a browning t bolt if you can find one this cheap. Good guns.
The "best" would probably be the Kimber .22, little pricy though.
I'd say the Savage(with the "new" trigger) would be good but I LOVE my Ruger 10/22.
Hope this helps. Good luck and good hunting.
I'd recommend the ruger 77/22 bolt action. As Big O said, the ruger 10/22 semiauto is legendary and is always a good pick for a 22
the marlin model 60 is damn accurate and costs about 150
Yeah, if you're not set on having a bolt action, I would pick up the Ruger 10/22. That gun has given me hours of shooting fun and the standard setup is very reasonable. They also make an endless amount of accessories for that rig, just look at the Cabela's shooting section.
Winchester wildcat, a Marlin, or a Savage.
A Savage or the Winchester Wildcat. See the June issue.
i have 2
savage .22 mag
my grandfather shoots cd 22's in silhouette competitions, he says their not as good as anchutz but he's never had one that wouldn't shoot well. he says their usually "one hole shooters" which is hard. They also have a reputation for not being very finicky about ammo brand/weight/speed and barrel temperature. you can get them for pretty cheap actually. good luck buddy.
Savage wuold be my choice. Also nikon makes a great cheap .22lr scope in thier Pro-Staff series.
Agreed with Big O and + 1 for you sir!!!
I just bought a Mossberg 144 LSA bolt action. Heavy 28" barrel with Lyman globe front sight and Williams/Mossberg rear peep. I also own a nice 10/22 w/fluted bull and trigger group.
With Wolf Ammo they both shoot single hole at 25 yards and about 1/2" at 50 yards. Other ammo shoots well but accuracy deteriortes more quickly - probably because Wolf is cleaner and better lubricated.
