Happy New Year to All! You guys with vintage 10/22's, what brand of ammo's giving you best accuracy? I have a '78 Sporter Deluxe, 100% stock, Vortex 2x8x32 scope. I sighted in with mediocre brand name stuff, Federal 525 red brick stuff, and Winchester 333 brick stuff, accuracy was so-so at 50yds, 1.5"+ groups. That same ammo was yielding .50"-.75" groups out of an old, scoped Marlin 60. I didn't expect the 10/22 was picky about ammo. Fed everything 100%, even the few squibs the Winchester stuff had.

Hate to be the one to break it to ya. You wont know 'til you try all kinds of ammo, Part of the fun with 22's, I have had pretty good luck with budget Target ammo, low end RWS, Wolf , etc. 100 yds is shortest I shoot now. But no definitive ammo, just have to try diff stuff.

My preference is the stuff i paid 4c to 5 c per round for before the plandemic hit. I wont pay 20c + Per rnd that its going for now.

Non-Giant Nighttime Garden Monsters ... During Summer ...

No dinky giant garden monsters now. No garden. Since the engagement range is usually quite short and my, (our) collective aim may be suspect, the Green Mountain Bentz chambered 1x9 quick twist 8" barrel used on the suppressed Ruger 10-22 SBR works just fine with the Aquila SSS 60 grain round nose lead bullets individually hollow pointed and weighed to about 55 grains bullet weight. Time consuming.

Seems to work OK. If we can see them thru the effective, (still) Cheap Russian Yukon low light scope they cease to move after being hit. Maybe 25 yards TOP. Usually 10-15 yards. Accurate enough. Pop, thud. Sometimes a squeak or two. Repeat. The good German 110 round drums help greatly.

If you want excellent accuracy out of a 10-22 you have to find one of the old heavy barrel target models.

Maybe the newer version is ok.......I haven't tried one.

You're doing fine with what you've got.

Stick with Federal ammo.

I have a 10/22 clone made by Tactical Solutions that shoots .5" or better groups at 60 yards with CCI SV and about the same with several other brands of decent ammo, and not as well with the bulk pack stuff, like "Thunder-duds." I have a feeling the rifle could shoot better if it were someone other than me pulling the trigger. Got a bipod for the rifle, but haven't been out to shoot it yet...usually, I've been resting the rifle on my range bag.

Anything but those waxy Remington rounds.
I bought a Rossi replica of the Winchester pump model 62A in 1980 & almost sold it because it wouldn't extract the empties consistently & they were hard to remove.

Turns out it was the wax coating on the Winchester ammo I was using that caused it. Never had that problem again when I switched over to a non wax coated brand. Still have the gun & it's a good shooter.

Why do you shoot at SIXTY yards when the standard is 50 yards?

Do you just like a greater challenge or is this a tiny flaw in your fiction?

As usual you change the subject, why are you here again? To lie and agitate in the political forum? Then stay there and stop faking it maria. I don't hate you anymore than I do the dog crap I scrape off my shoe. Let's see a target of that fine shooting maria. Oh and because you are a troll and a liar, you'll have to make it unique, wanna play the game maria? No of course not. OOO bad spelling and bad grammar, oh my!
50 yard target sighting in a 40 dollar 4 power scope. The first couple high walked it down , then one final adjustment for the bottom of the diamond. Brimstone Trigger job, tier 3, 2.75 pound ultra clean snap, done by yours truely, 10-22 carbine, ammunition was federal blue box hollow points.
I still have the model 60 I bought when I was 14 for 30 something dollars? I shot shot so many jack rabbits on the run I can't remember.

Say it ain't so, Winchester does that too, the water proofing thing? Oh and I'll add I don't care for the Remington Thunderbolts unless I got a bad batch. The lead bullet is not coaxial with the case on some and of course they don't feed. SO a pain in the rear.
