Re: Ruger 10/22 accuracy
I put a Butler Creek barrel and stock on my 10/22. The barrel was $220.00 and the stock, about $70.00. I also had a trigger job done, which cost about $75.00. My accuracy went from 1" to 1/2 groups at 75 yards. I was very impressed with the performance and quality of the Butler Creek barrel. I put a Leupold VX II 4.5x12x50mm with duplex reticle. I use this rifle for 10 to 100 yard shots on ground squirrles. You could really get high tec, with your 10/22, by going with all Volqurtzen parts. However, you will spend a lot of money for the same type of accuracy you could receive by going with the Butler Creek products. I spent $365.00 for the Butler Creek Barrel, Butler Creek Stock, and quality trigger job. You will spend much more if you go with other parts, your accuracy will not be any better, and you will have to wait months if you go with parts by Volqurtzen, Lilja, ect. Trust me, Butler Creek makes a really good barrel. My Butler Creek barrel is 20" long, Stainless Steel, fluted, and has a .920 straight taper. It's real easy to assemble the action to the barrel, and the action and barrel fit like a glove into the Butler Creek stock. My Butler Creek barrel loves the 40grn CCI Velocitor bullets, and they are deadly on varmints. Good luck with your 10/22, you gotta love that little Ruger.
