    Smallest group I have ever fired, .208 five rounds Eley Target at 50 yards with a 10/22.

    That is a great group for any .22 , tell us what you have done to yours . My best was .548 / 3 shot group , using Wolf ammo . Mine is a stock Deluxe except for a volguartsen target hammer and Weaver 3x9-32 AO scope .

    I need to get out and shoot some groups in my best 1022.

    Nothing that small, but still nice.

    (I did shoot 10rds for .58 at 66 yards last year. I was very happy.)

    That's not exactly a Ruger anymore but damn impressive for any .22 rifle.

    10/22's are great. I built two of them and each are 3/8 to 1/2 inch at 50 yards.Sometimes they do better but not consistently.

    If you think 10/22's are to heavy for squirrel hunting,you better start eating Wheaties and lifting weights.Good Lord!

    I think he meant that the OP's rifle being a built up target rifle with a big heavy stock, scope and barrel was not meant for squirrel hunting.

    You did see that the OPs rifle is not a standard 10/22 right?

    I built mine up,one with an 18-1/2 inch Feddersen bbl and the other one with a 20 inch Feddersen,KIDD triggers and custom bolts.Got a molded rubber stock on the 20 inch and a cut down,re shaped and finished stock on the 18-1/2". Both are great shooters.Built mine for squirrel hunting.:cowboy:

    The Whistle Pig barrels are featherweights. A steel liner in a aluminum tube.

    Mines all steel barrel. I have a couple other 10/22s with Volquartsen carbon fiber steel tube barrel and a TacSol aluminum steel tube barrel in TacSol XRing stocks.

    Great showing for one of the most ubiquitous rifles in America, modified or not.

    Lol yeah. The only thing stock that is left is the receiver.
    That is the main reason that I like 10/22's. You can customize them to your hearts content.

    I use my Marlin for squirrels and it is my work' horse and my 10/22 for targets and for the "cool" factor.
