Re: 10/22 tips?
Thanks for the advice, folks. The extended mag release sounds like a good start. Maybe a different bolt release too. The 10/22T comes with what Ruger calls a target trigger, and my gauge shows 3lb. Not too gritty, but plenty of overtravel. I can cure that with a drill press, tap, and hex screw. They also claim a tight target chamber, but we'll see.
Off to the range now, and I'll try whatever brands of shells they got. First shots with a new toy. Oh, Boy!
There is no "overkill". There is only "open fire" and "I need to reload."
