Default Ruger 10-22

Just bought a 10-22 stainless and mounted a 3 by 9 scope ran a patch thru it and set the scope. the problem is that my 50 yds. 5 shot groups are about 2 in. my marlin will go less than a inch, what can I do?

Thanks Martin

What were you expecting from a standard 10-22? They are not known for their accuracy, without some custom work. All you can do is try some different ammo, or do some work to the rifle. I have one that shoots very well, but I also have $500 in the rifle. I like the Green Mountain Barrel. Tom.

Try some different ammo. Some guns are picky. But I agree with the above, I'm not a huge fan of the 10/22 unless you are going to build one up, then they rock.

I personally would get a marlin semi auto, or a savage bolt action with the accu trigger myself.

There's a lot you can do to make your 10-22 shoot better-even with just modifing factory parts. check rim depth in front of bolt for headspace. It's usually .065-.080,take extractor out and face front of bolt square at perfect 90 degrees till depth is appx. .045,as most rim thickness on ammo is .040-.043. That will help a bunch right there. also you can acchive a tighter chamber in factory barrel by facing .050 from rear face of barrel. then you will need to set shoulder back same amount and touching up extractor slot on right back. Same with trigger/sear/hammer-just a lil common sense can take you a long way. pm me or email me and I can give you more info and more detailed.

It is very possible the bore is a bit rough. I believe the accuracy will improve a little.
Then you can start pouring money into it and tricking it out!

I'd go with the different ammo first. Mine will drive tacks with one brand and be marginally accurate with another.

My own 10/22 was very sensitive to ammunition.With the heavy target barrel it still prefers remington target loads but with that ammunition it averages 1/2" groups at 50 yards.

I went out and bought like 10 different types of ammo. The target stuff was horrible. But stingers by CCI put 5 shots into 1" at 50 yards.

i have a 10/22 and dont really care for it. I do use CCI ammunition that shoots very well, but they dont really shoot very well unless you put that $500 into it. And at that price, you could have a kimber and anshutz
