I did the test

I tested my 10/22, with the bolt that I radiused or chamfered some 15 years ago.
Using primed .22 rimfire cases, I was able to get out of battery firing when I pulled the bolt back about 1/2 a...

good value

Even if you spend $100 for a trigger job or replacement trigger group, I think it's worth it if you want to maximize your gun's performance, whether it's hunting, bullseye shooting, doing other...

Out of Battery firing?

Question:

Do you think that doing the radius / chamfer on your Ruger 10/22's bolt increases the risk of having an out of battery firing? Suppose a dirty or misshapen cartridge doesn't fully seat...

out of battery firing?

I did the DIY bolt radius thing on both of my 10/22 bolts about 10 years ago.
This past weekend I had a Ka-Boom with one of the guns, shooting Remington Thunderbolt ammo (cheap-o, low quality, I...

My 10/22's both have had their bolts radiused several years ago, but even before that they ran fine with standard velocity .22 LR loads, with 40-grain bullets.

They would not, however, cycle CB...

I think the .22 magnum is a fine rimfire rifle round, but, as others have said, not a great choice for pistol-length barrels.

I have shot other people's .22 WMR rifles for years, before finally...

At the local gun store the other day, AND at Academy Sports, I saw they both had a new (to me) product: Winchester 45-grain .22 WMR (.22 magnum) that was loaded to subsonic velocity. 1060 f.p.s.

Yeah, rimfire.
And a general purpose round, like the .22 LR is.
NOT a specialized varmint round like the .22-250, a light-loaded .223, or even a .22 Hornet. Those are varmint rifle rounds.

Old thread, I know, but I'll add my two cents.


It's velocity that does it.

I shot a lot of mild, construction-grade steel over the years.

All the high velocity (2400-3100 f.p.s.) ammo...

Owning 4 such rifles can make perfect sense, if each is configured differently.
