You will get varying answers on this question. 10/22s are highly customizable. You can have some that shoot great out to 50 yards, to some that shoot great to 100 yards and farther.
Good answer PB.
which ammo you use also can affect accuracy at certain distances the box of Remington ammo i have tells me how far my bullet drops after 125 feet
I guess it would depend on how good a shot you are, and how dedicated.
Barrel changed out to a .920 in either hammer forged or Green Mountain, spring kit and trigger shear changed and lapped,molded hogue stock and good quality optic in the 20x range? I've shot red squirrels in the neck at 100 plus. And sub/sub moa @ 100 yards. 0.335". As a factory sporter 50 yards is pushing it unless it has a good barrel. Rifle is capable of some pretty amazing groups with the right shooter sqeezing/pulling the trigger.
True accuracy is dependent on the gun and load/bullet and is the same at any range (MOA value). Practical accuracy at longer ranges depends more on the shooter, and in this case, on the wind more than usual.
Also, I hope you only plan to shoot targets at long ranges with a .22 LR. They lose energy quickly.
Too many variables.
Don't take this personally, but the fact that you are asking the question suggests that the accuracy limitations will be more about you than the gun.
10/22's come in many models and there is a large variation in quality. Some are "shooters" and some are not. Are you shooting offhand, off a bipod or off a rest? For maximum accuracy, you will also have to figure out what sort of ammo it likes (this can make a big difference at high end)
Anyway... what do you mean by "accurately"? Targets? Group size? Clays?
Buy the gun and shoot it. Shoot it lots. You will figure it out.
