.22 shells for a 10/22

16 posts in this topic

I was woundering what .22 shells shoot the best out of rugers 10/22 ? I just bought a 10/22 with the target barel,and looking for advice on a good round thats not to spendy but groups good. I shot some cheep shells that shot so so. But its hard to keep it loaded with the 25 shot clip becuse it to much fun to blast off fast. I think I'll have to get the 50 shot clip..

Just wait until you upgrade to an AR-15...then' you'll find out what fun shooting is, you'll run through a couple hundred shells in few minutes .... grin.gif

Then you'll search the internet and find out you can do "bump shooting", there it goes another couple or three hundred shells down the barrel.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

im partial to CCI brand ammo for my rugers. i have an "in" so i can get cci stingers for wholesale price, so thats pretty much all i shoot. but as far as what shoots good, i would stick to higher quality stuff, even if your running hundreds of rounds through just blasting away, youll get less fouling and buildup in the action and barrel.

Some of ya'all boys might want to read the manual that came with your 10-22 to learn what it has to say about shooting various "hot" .22 cartridges.

I think if you simply can't find a magazine large enough to hold all of what you want to blow up you might talk with a good gunsmith about converting your 10-22 to a belt fed model, water cooled.

Thank you and good night. confused.gif

I seem to remember that it said something about" stingers "and other hot loads not being approved for use in the 10-22 Target. I guess if you've been shooting them thats okay for YOUR rifle. Why don't you check the Ruger site just for the heck of it. wink.gif

Have been shooting CCI mini mag long rifle hollow points (cheaper in price and not a hot as stinger)for the last couple years in two Ruger 10/22. Before that I had intermittent jam problems with low price 500 round bricks of 22 shells. Sportsman's warehouse gun dept suggested these CCI shell to fix the 10/22 jam problems and I have not had any problems since switching to these shells.

I've had the same problem with my Ruger 10/22 jamming quite frequently shooting the cheaper brick .22 ammo from a couple different manufactures. I'll try running some of the better ammo through it and see if that does it for me. Thanks

I had some issues with some manafacturers and loads.

I settled in on American Eagle 40Gr hollowpoints.

Now it's BAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAM....

Load the next clip in and repeat!! Shoot all day if you

want, and it won't hurt ya in the wallet. You may want

to invest in those speed loaders where ya dump in the

loose rounds,then just turn the knob to load the clip.

The best round I've found for my ruger 10/22 has been Remington's Golden Bullet in hollow points. They're about mid priced and shoot well, and can usually find them in 325 round boxes. I swear by them!!! I know it's a reach, but I've knocked crows at 175 yards with the rounds.

CCI is the only way to go with Ruger's 10/22's. I have 2 of them just because i love the Ruger 10/22 and i've fought the best is the CCI stingers. Shoots the most accurate.

Didn't matter what I shot with my 10/22, still jammed alot. Now I shoot a marlin SQ880 bolt. I will admit though, when the ruger didn't jam, it was fun to shoot, hated reloading.

I'll second the Rem Gold hollowpoints, they've been the best for me out of my 10/22. But I think I'll try the CCI's now...just to see if I'm missing anything. Thanks.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
