Default Ruger 10/22 accuracy not worth a dime

Went to the range the other day and shot 10 rounds through a hole the size of less than a dime at 25 yards using Federal Auto Match bulk ammo from Walmart.

Specs:
Pillar/bedded/free floated barrel
Stock: Bell and Carlson Odyssey
Barrel: Green Mountain 16" .920 stainless
Bolt: Ruger head spaced to .044, re-ramped rear for smoother cycling, V-cut for easier charging handle re-install
Trigger: Volquartsen
Hammer/sear kit: Power Custom

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?
Great gun and great shooting.

Tried automatch for the first time in my 10/22 a couple of weeks ago. Meant to do a range report, hope you don't mind if I just piggy back yours. I'm pretty happy with the ammo. First couple of magazines had a couple of jams but after that no more problems. I'll definietly pick up some more next time I'm at walmart.

ten shots per a target at fifty yards. 10/22T scopechief 15X power, also a green mountain barrel. Power custom/volquartsen trigger parts. Thinking of sending my bolt off to be modded at CPC and/or bedding my rifle. See if it helps with those one round fliers

yea, mine don't shoot worth a damn either

5-shot groups


5-shot groups with same rifle, but these were from before bedding, floating, and adding a pressure pad...

Pillar bedding, bedding and free floating the barrel made all the difference in accuracy. Re-head spacing the bolt got rid of the first round fliers. It's a good thing I only went to .044 since any lower and the firing pin can start to peen the barrel chamber. IIRC the was a guy on rimfirecentral that was selling modded factory new bolts with all the same mods including pining the firing pin for 69.00

Trob, before floating? nice I wouldn't touch it. What kind of ammo and what distance? If I stuck to 3 shot groups it 1 jagged hole. Shooting 10 rounds you start to loose your center so the groups get bigger ie the dime size hole LOL...

BTW the Tri Mags are a nice accessory.

Now that you all realize how bad 10/22 is, don't you wish you got Marlin or Savage?

In factory configuration, Marlin is better than a comparable 10/22. You can modify any gun to be more accurate with enough $ and effort. The thread title should be changed to: Heavily modified Ruger 10/22 accuracy not worth a dime.

thanks. Its Wolf MT at 25 yards. All my 22's are sighted to 25 because thats where most of the competitions on RFC take place and i rarely shoot squirrels beyond that range anyways. I use GM barrels for all my rimfires.

It was shooting consistently under 1/4" but I couldnt get into the "Zee-Row" range very often (0.0X" 5-shot groups). So i did some stock work, bedded the action, also added a pressure pad and floated the barrel. This brought it into the Zee-row range pretty easily. The gun that did those is in the 3-Zee club and 2-Zee club on RFC. I have only shot with it at the range 1 time after bedding it, so Im sure it could easily be a 4-Zee gun (4/4 with each being under 0.099")

I dont shoot at the range much (gets boring), but I recently finished 2 more rigs that are contenders for the 3 and 4-zee competition. a lot of fun to shoot!
here is my "Sleeper".

Nice rifle Flyingpootang, You got me! I was going to prove you wrong too, but you can't beat the OTB accuracy on these and when modified "not worth a dime".
Here's one of my 10/22s converted to 17M2, sorry no field report yet.

I can't wait to see what it can do at 50 yards. I'm sure 3 shot clover leafs are possible. 100 yards is also on the challenge list.

X-NewYawker: nice barre. I definitely going with a fluted barrel on my next rig. A Blackened fluted stainless would be awesome.

Nice shooting Flyingpootang you deserve some of the credit too. I have just added a pillar to my LVT do you have any pics of your bedding and freefloating work? That is next on my list.

To free float it I used a deep socket a little wider than the barrel channel. I started with 80 grit than moved to 120, 400, 600. Since the stock is synthetic I didn't need to seal it. I'll post pics of the pillar/bedding/free floating tomorrow.
