looked at a couple new gun's today

Stoped at the Big R in Redmond to get some bullet's and they had a Ruger 77 in 22 Hornet. Nice gun, real nice. But I haven't heard a lot of good about the Ruger. Had two long ago but from what I hear, they aren't what they used to be. So I next looked at a CZ in 223. Now that I liked! Single set trigger. You should alway's shoot it set tho unless the normal trigger can be adjusted. What a rag unless set. I think it was $600 plus they gave me a 10% off card. Gotta get a 4 wheeler first. Going to Salem soon to look for one. If I can find one cheap enough or swipe my brother's, I'm gonna get the CZ too! Yes

Do a search on the Ruger 10/22 and you will see tons of great posts on it not to mention the almost limitless customization options available for it as well.

I decided to get a small plinker to play with along with my .270 so I picked up the Ruger 10/22. I should get my ruger next weekend then I'll be able to play with it a bit. I think I will have a smith take a look at the two guns though to see what I can do to get them into .270 = MOA@100yds and the .22=1/2MOA@50yds.

I am close on the .270 so I don't think it will take much work to get my target accuracy with that one. From what I hear the 10/22 should be pretty close to the 1/2MOA @ 50 yds right out of the box as well so hopefuly I won't have to do much to that one either.

I also had a chance to shoot one of the 10/22's during thanksgiving in Utah and I must say I had tons of fun. It was very reliable, smooth and accurate. We were hunting jack rabbits and the 10/22 was the weapon of choice with a couple 25rd clips. I was so pleased and impressed with it that I ordered one when I got back home(in cali so can't get the larger clips).

I would definately suggest looking into the 10/22's if you haven't yet.

When you get the 4-wheeler, stay of the road where you smoked the cow with the truck. When you hit something with that thing you're definately the first person at the accident Cry Cry Cry

How would that 10/22 work for coyote? Or would one be better off with the 223 or 243?

Well how about if I put one of those moose guards on it like I seee on Canadian road trucks? Big smile Big smile

Actually I'm out of 4 wheel drives now. My son has my Bronco and I still have mt '83 Ford super two fifty dually. Used it to pull my own 5th wheel. So I'm not replacing the Dodge. I can get aroung better and cheaper where I want to go with a 4 wheeler.....With a moose guard. Thumbs up

Redrider,

I've got a 22 mag and a 243 for coyote's. I think the 22 mag might not be quite enough and the 243 a bit much. Looking at the 22 Hornet as a calling rifle or a 223. 223 will probally win as I've got dies and several hundred mty's for it.
