    .22 Target Rifles

    Hi guys,

    Im looking at getting into some local shooting competitions and I dont know much about the .22s that they use.

    Do you guys have any recommendations for some good competition rifles?

    Also, is there a message board dedicated to competition rifles?

    Thanks!

    Are we talking Olympic \ National class competition, Regional or just Club Shooting ?.

    For Club \ Regional shooting the Remington 597TVP or Ruger 22/10 USST would be my first starting points for a target .22

    The 597TVP is cheaper and reviews point it as being a tad more accurate than the 10/22

    The 10/22 USST edition is a nice looker though, so if you dont win you still get everyone drooling over your pretty looking rifle :)

    Then of course you have a miriad of scope options.

    Kinda vague. Is this a bolt action only, or any rifle type?
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Well for now its just regional/club shooting - any rifle type.

    I want something that I can learn to compete with then upgrade if I get serious..

    Thanks for the info so far!

    In that case 10/22, they upgrade nice, and start out nice. Personally though I would use a bolt action rifle, if its a pure accuracy competition.
