Re: Best 22 cal rifle

If you want a full size rifle that handles like a centerfire rifle, you might see if you can find a Remington Model 541 or 541T (heavy barrel). I've had one for years and love it. Very accurate, very well made. Fells just like a Remington 700.

    Remington 541T would be a good choice to feel like a 700. They shoot really well also. Another thought, Weidner's has/had some cz training rifles. Heavy and very accurate I hear and for about 250.

    Checked Weidner's and they only had the single shot and it's not anything like the clip model was.

    I have most of the popular ones and the one that feels most like a real full sized bolt action rifle is the Winchester 52 and the Remington 40X.
    I have to say I enjoy shooting 52's the best by far.

    I have a CZ 452 and my brother-in-law has a Ruger 77/22. They both shoot about as well in the field, under actual hunting conditions. Buy the one you like the best. I could be happy forever with either one.

    Another .22 cal that seems especially good is the Browning T-Bolt. I picked the CZ 452 over it because the CZ 452 had a better sense of balance to me. Another person mght like the T-Bolt better.

    You can get a CZ 453 with a single set trigger, if you like that sort of thing.

    The CZ 455 has quick change barrels, if that is an important feature for you.

    All these rifles cost far less than an Anschutz, and will shoot as well under field conditions. All have very good workmanship and materials and will last more than a lifetime.

    Value and accuracy wise I agree 100% on the CZ's I love my 453 Varmint and the 455 American is nice but I still like the 452/3's a little better. They are all super shooters and have a fair amount of aftermarket parts available for tweaking.
