Brownells recently had em on sale for $199 OTD so I picked up a Carbine.
Course I immediately took it home and turned that $200 rifle into a $300 rifle with a set of Tech peep sights and the usual trigger kit, modified bolt release and synthetic buffer.
It's just for plinking on my little 25yrd range out back where I shoot my handguns so the peep sight's perfect.....it has two apertures for 25 and 50 yrds. They're pretty slick but I didn't realize that I needed one of their wrenches until I had the sights. They're cheap though....I have one on the way.

I shot a couple of mags of bulk Federal first....they were some jamming sonsabitches so naturally I thought "oh great, here we go" but then I tried some CCI SV and Mini Mags (2 mags each) and it ran flawlessly. Kinda wierd for a 10/22 ....they usually feed everything.....but that's fine with me.....I've got a butt load of CCI on hand.

Here's a link to the Tech Sights for those that aren't familiar with them.

Even a 10/22 will not feed and function 100% with [bleep] ammo, which the Federal HP bulk pack stuff usually is. Their Automatch bulk is OK but that HP stuff sucks.

Yea.....I'm finding that out.
I ran across a good deal on Fed a while back so I picked up a couple of bricks.
It seems to function is a couple of other auto's I tried it in but I get a lot of duds.
I'm down to about 50rnds and won't be buying any more.
You're right about the Auto Match though.....it's flawless in my MKIV and Browning 1911/22.
Walmart keeps a pretty good supply of it so I go through a lot.

Federal Game Shok 38 gr. HP ammo is very accurate and deadly on game. One of my favorites.

CDS on this 39 is set up for that round.

No doubt, but not the same thing as their 36g HP bulk packed crap discussed here.

Yeah, I don't buy that stuff. Some of the W/W bulk stuff has been less than stellar.

I don't plink and burn thru ammo enough to need or want cheap bulk stuff.

Life is too short to waste time on cheap 22 ammo! I go through around 7000 rounds of 22 per year and have limited myself to CCI SV, Federal Automatch, Aguila, and Eley. Others I shoot with have had very good luck with CCI Blazer which is about the same price as bulk boxes from other manufacturers. If you watch the sales at Palmetto and Target Sports and are willing to buy in large lots, premium ammo is as affordable as the bulk c**p.
The high velocity Aguila Super Extra shoots as well as CCI Mini-Mags for a lot less money.

I swear the rimfire forum's getting as bad as the optics forum.
After half a century of shooting rimfires I don't need a lecture ammo. I know a little bit about quality 22 ammo.......
The federal was on sale so I tried some and passed my results on....that's all.
I can assure you it won't happen again though.

So much can be done with the 10-22. This one has a Volquartsen barrel, Hogue stock, Jard trigger group, topped with a 1.5-5x20 Leupold.

Jk16: I am a user and admirer of the Federal 36 grain H/P bulk pack ammo - I have been using it in SEVERAL of my semi-auto and bolt action 22's on small game and Varmints for many years now.
It is accurate and lethal on said targets - I do on occasion endure a FTF (fail to fire) with this ammo but that is a very minor (trivial) inconvenience.
This past year, alone, I went through eight 550 and 525 bulk packs of the stuff (over 4,400 rounds!) while afield.
The accuracy and performance and the savings on this ammo keeps me using it.
In fact, of recent, I have been buying the 550 bulk packs of this Federal H/P ammo at Wal-Mart for $19.97 a carton!
Thats 3.6 cents a shot!
Your contention is in no way convincing me to quit using this ammo at all.
Maybe you are over sensitive?
I Varminted with at least 30 different Hunters this year on predominantly rimfire safaris/shoots.
About 1 out of 7 or 8 of those "Hunters" when they had a "misfire, fail to feed or fail to fire" with rimfire ammo would literally "go off", themselves - I mean they would become personally incensed on those rather rare occasions when a 22 L.R. round did not perform "perfectly" - I don't know (nor do I care!) if they noticed my laughing at them!
Work the friggin action I would snarl at them and get on with it!
In short I do not expect a bulk offering of 22 L.R. ammo at 3.6 cents a round to be "perfect"!
I do expect that the Federal 36 grain H/P bulk pack ammo to work just as well next season for me as it has for the last MANY seasons.
Anyway I disagree (based on more than 80,000 rounds down the tubes!) that Federal 36 grain bulk pack ammo is [bleep]!
Hold into the wind

Dude Lickers suck heavy ass and from every angle...especially when wearing Reupold and Blued Walnut. Hint.

AMT soundly whooped Ruger many moons ago,by actually offering a S/S 10/22 and Mk/22 Pistole receiver/frame. Have their(AMT's) 10/22's in both Pinch Lock and Threaded Barrel,along with rear "lug"(which I always remove).

Have better than a dozen and have BT/DT and have ALL of the T-shirts and then some. Hint.

The OP's Iron Sights are a fhuqking joke too. The ammo "R&D" equally fhuqking hilarious!

It's never been difficult to cypher,who shoots and who don't.

Just sayin'.

Hint.

You've been led to water.

I recently sold my 10-22, in favor of my A17.. The A17 is so much more consistently accurate.

Never mind Boxer my friend. Hes got awesome stuff and knows his stuff. But pleasing him is a epic waste of time.

They are fun, have had my share of them. All I have now is a heavy barrel target I built and a sporter model. LGS had a nice mannlicher stainless the other day on the used rack but it had already been an expensive month with a ruger compact in 260 and a remington 541t

For some reason I want the m1 carbine model. Looks like it would be fun.
