    My dad put one on his 10/22. It shoots [email protected] yds pretty easy with cheap Rem. bulk ammo. He has never tried any good stuff in it. I put one on mine also but have not had the chance to shoot it yet. His is also a skinny original contour barrel.

    The only experience I have had with 10/22 Ruger and Green Mountain barrels did not turn out great. About 2000- 2003 Midway ran a special, Green River 10/22 heavy barrel and a black laminated stock combination at a good price. Dick's Had a good sale on 10/22 Rugers. I reworked some of the action and built a 10/22 with Heavy barrel and laminated stock, It shot rather well, But would not shoot groups with my 1973 Aluminum butt plate 10/22 carbine. It became trade goods on my CZ 452 American Classic.
    It could have been I did not take the time and money to find a load that matched the load to the twist of the barrel for good accuracy.

    Good barrel for the money with a lot of options. Not a Lilja however.

    Well, I went on ahead and got a Green Mtn. barrel, 20 inch same contour as stock barrel, nothing fancy ya know. Took everything apart to the bare receiver and put the new GMT barrel in, went to the gun range and started to break the barrel in,,,I'm truly impressed. 30 rounds CCI Mini Mag 36 gr. bullets in a hole at 50 yards ya can cover with a dime. That's pretty damn good compared to the original factory barrel.
