      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

.22 shells for a 10/22

Recommended Posts

sportfish

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.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
