Ruger 10/22 question
I know this isn't a really "Long Range" type rifle but I do enjoy shooting it. The questions that I have are:
I have the factory target model 10/22. I have been told to NOT shoot Stingers/Velocitors/Quick Shocks through this rifle. I have the recoil buffer from Volquartsen installed. Why am I not to shoot these? Is it due to the longer case jamming into the lands? The barrel has a "Bentz" style chamber. Does that not mean that the throat is longer, thus eliminating this problem?
Another question is, is it worth getting the Volquartsen Trigger group, receiver, and competition bolt? Are they really that much better over the stock? I can see the trigger group, but I am not sure about the reciever and bolt.
One last question. Is it also worth getting a Lilja drop-in barrel for the 10/22? I am mostly shooting varmints with this at 50- 100 yards so pin-point accuracy is not a huge factor. I was thinking of doing up a 10/22 with all the Volquartsen and Lilja equipment, but I do not really have that much extra cash. The money that I would spend on the 10/22 could be spent on a centerfire project. Here in Canada I am estimating that it will cost me about $1400-$1500. That is for the trigger group, receiver, competition bolt, lilja barrel, and a Boyd's Blaster stock. But I am willing to spend the cash if it truely will make a large difference in performance.
Thanks for any info!
