Hi, the Guide to Safe Scouting requires that any Boy Scout .22 rifle shooting be done with a single shot rifle. We specifically purchased single shot rifles for our boys.
It surprised me that just a couple of years ago, Ruger came out with a Boy Scout Commemorative 10/22. Both Ruger and the Boy Scouts shared the profits.
Since seeing that hypocrisy I now let my older Boy Scouts shoot 10/22s loading 5rds. The younger scouts still use the single shot rifles. No scout shoots anything until they fully understand and can teach the three basic safe gun handling rules to others.
