Default Best 22lr bolt rifle

Just shoot my buddy cz 455 tacticool bolt gun. So much fun. All 5 rounds touching at 30 yards. I have a ruger 10/22 and ruger rpr in 556 so I was looking at a Ruger 22 rpr. Didn't want to spend more than $600. Wanted to shoot something indoor and that really accurate. What else should I be looking at?

Does it have to be the "tacticool" version or will a regular bolt gun do? If you're good with std bolt gun, look at the CZ 455 "Training" rifle. That 25" barrel makes for some accurate shooting with .22lr. Under $350 at Buds.

I think the longest barrel length I would with, would be 20". Anyone owe Ruger rpr 22 that can provide some feedback?

Cz is the best bang for the buck as far as accuracy.

If bragging rights aren't important to you, try Savage Mk2.
Short, light, precision accurate and uses a picatinny rail for your scope du jour. Don't let the short barrel fool your either.
AcuTrigger is adjustable and very good out of the box.
Cheap too < $300

CZ builds rimfires with barrels from 16-28 inches, and all are very accurate.

As an added bonus the 455 has interchangeable barrels for both .22 mag and .17 HMR.

++++ for CZ 455 Varmint Tacticool. if you're gonna shoot indoors, no need for a long barrel. Nice compact 16.5" barrel makes things easier in a tight indoor range. The Boyd's stock that comes with it is pretty nice too.

The Savage is suppose to be pretty nice too, but i dunno what barrel config is available for it.

Is it true a 22LR single shot bolt can also shoot 22 long and 22 short?

I agree. I have a CZ 455 Trainer.

I have the Ruger RPR and I love it. It easily shoots touching groups at 25yrds. Plus it is nice to share mags with 10/22.

What 22 ammo is everyone using? I have thousands of rounds of cci mini mag. I heard cci standard velocity is good too. I did not want to spend double for match grade ammo.

I use CCI standard LRN in m th son's bolt. 22. I could spend more, but then I'm in .17 HMR prices and I'll shoot that out to 200 meters.

Same here NAVYDAD, some of the older rifles are just as accurate as todays
pricey rifles. It don't get out much, but mine is great too.

Again, this right here^^^. This would be a superb set-up for the price.
Unless of course, more coin must be spent for a "match" type rifle.

I wonder why I haven't heard of more reviews on the RPR. Especially reviews about it's accuracy and precision. I'd have picked one up already, but can't find any good reviews yet.

At that distance I think just about any quality 22 with a semi decent piece of glass will do what your asking. My old Marlin 795 SA with a cheap Simmons 3x9 will put a 10 round mag worth of 22 in a quarter size group. My buddy has a Ruger American with a decent Vortex 12 power that is pretty impressive, it’s a 22 wmr with a 18” barrel. If I got a 22 bolt gun that’s what I’d get.

for real bolt action rimfire fun i like a scoped marlin 17hmr over a 22lr/wmr. very zippy and long range accurate, plus there was always 17hmr ammo on the shelves during the great drought.

I know it's rimfire, but I don't think 25 yard groups tell you much about a rifle. It's probably a good distance to start if you're zeroing a new scope, but as far as a rifle's performance, I'm not sure.

I zero my CZ 455 22LR at 50 yards and I've had 5 shot groups where it was basically 1 hole, but that unfortunately doesn't mean it's sub-MOA at 100 yards because I actually shoot it at 100 yards and it tends to open up.

It's like people who post 25 yard groups for their Mini 14's and extrapolate it's going to shoot 2 MOA @ 100 yards. Doesn't work that way.

Most any of the CZ’s will shoot like that at 30 yds with good ammo, you need to stretch it out to at least 50-75 to get a good idea of its accuracy.

Being old school, my long time owned Remington 581 and Glenfield model 25 bolt action magazine fed .22s rifles work just fine for me. They will fire short, long, and long rifle cartridges, and eat any brand that I have fed them.

Now my semi-auto .22LR rifles like being fed CCI mini-mags.
