I like my mod 37s for accuracy and my 40x as a tote around rifle.



Butch- I have had best luck at 150 with Eley Tenex and Eley Match. Next best is RWS R50. Lapua Midas and other $20 a box stuff stunk at 150 yards. I can't beat Wolf Match Extra at 50 yards even with the Eley stuff.

I don't even shoot high velocity stuff anymore except when hunting. Wish I could find a nice clean 37.



I have 3 mod 37s left.

Can you post photos?

I used to think a gun HAD to be a bolt action to be super accurate.

I was wrong.

Dirt they sure don't. But we'd most likely squabble as a group over what "super accurate" meant;)

A finely tuned, custom 10-22 can push a good bolt gun on accuracy. Some are pretty amazing.

A buddy at work and I bought Anschutz 1407 repeaters a few years ago. Groups have been easily under 0.5, with 0.2-0.3 not uncommon. These are 54 target rifles though, not sporters.

Shortly after getting the rifles, he made us some targets from angle iron. The goal is to shoot into one of the holes, which causes an L-shaped piece of steel to flip up. If you miss, the splatter shows up outside the hole. You can see the target in the images below (ignore the chickens and orange thing).

Anyway, the smallest "target", or hole is 1/2". At 50 yards, you can put every shot into that hole with the 54 rifles. It's so easy that it gets boring really fast and we don't even bother using that contraption anymore. That buddy has also made lollipop targets from small washers. He puts green painter's tape on the back. You thread the bullet through the hole in the washer and can see the hole in the tape. If you miss the hole and hit the washer, the whole thing spins.

Since getting the Annies, he's come up with all sorts of tiny targets. It's been a hoot.

That target contraption in my post above has been handy for "weeding" out other rifles. We both have 10-22 rifles that can place most bullets into the 1/2" hole. Sometimes 10 out of 10, but not always. My rifle has a Kidd trigger and Clerke bull barrel. His has a tensioned ultralight barrel. Both have Hogue stocks. I think the light weight of our 10/22 rifles is what holds us back more than anything.

I'm hoping Barrett keeps their word and builds a 22lr.

How does that end up in a 22 thread? Barrett is building CENTERFIRE rifles from what I read.

I wouldn't consider 1/2" at 50 yards super accurate for a good 22.

How about .28" at 50 yards?

The Sako Quad would meet the criteria along with the KDF K22 and Mauser 201 that Hasbeen mentioned.

Coopers do pop from time to time for around the $1200 mark, this one was here the other day for a short time before someone jumped on it -

223 Rem, my favorite cartridge - you can't argue with truckloads of dead PD's and gophers.
