    O/T 22 Mag Info

    Looking to purchase a 22 mag. Thought savage made a tube fed but can't find one. What do all of you think is a good solid accurate rifle. Looking to buy in Ga or Fl if someone has for sale. Advice good to.

    Thanks

    Marlin is a good alternative. If the Savage with accutrigger costs too much, Rifle Basix has a fixit for 75 or less.

    I have a Marlin and it's just peachy keen. If you get ammo with good bullets it shoots squirrels right in the eye.

    My Ruger 77/22 VMBZ loves to shoot CCI MaxiMag 40gr HPs into sub MOA groups! Most accurate factory ammo yet for this gun. A friend has a Sako Quad that shoots equally well with the same ammo.

    Handloads with 40gr V-Max bullets seated to 1.540 OAL are simply deadly accurate!

    Best bang for the buck goes to the Savage 93 with heavy barrel.

    Marlin really makes a nice rifle and the savage has that newer trigger design -

    But if the Marlin trigger isnt to your liking- which it might be anyway- its a simple trigger to smooth and lighten

    looked at an Anshutz 52M(?) in Ny state-nice gun and it was fairly priced- then I looked at the ammo costs- expensive plinker-I'll stick with my Model 61 in 22lr - I also wanna see the reloader for that and the source of the empty rimfire reloadable cases-

    I have a Marlin model 883 ( tube feed, bolt action). It will shoot under 3/4" 5 shoot group at 150 yds with winchester super X ammo. I bought this gun used a few years ago. You cant go wrong with the marlin 22's or 22 mags. You can find these gun in the 125.00 range used in good condition.

    EE hit it on the head! Using a collet type bullet puller, it's fairly easy to remove the factory slug and reload the WMR case with precision bullets. You may also substitute different powders, but I'm not giving any suggestions. Seating the new bullet with a "chamber" style die is key to top performance. Sure make for pricey WMRs, but I love to see the looks I get when people see these things for the first time!

    Buy a CZ, much better quality than current produced Marlin's or Savage's.
