I do body shots on rabbits out to ~130 yards. I have to add that I typically hunt the rabbits around sunset. So light is far from optimal.

Browning T-Bolt 22 Mag

I am looking for some expert advice. I have just bought a used made in Japan Browning T-Bolt 22 Mag Target/Varmint Rifle with a heavy Barrel that is in very good condition . I would like to know just what size of groups & range I can expect from my rifle. I have very limited experience with a 22 Mag. Any help with my questions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for letting me join your forum.

Just my two cents. A lot depends on ammo...rimfires are especially notorious for like one ammo over another.
My experience...I use mine (a heavy barrel Savage) most at distances around 100m (110yds for you Yanks)...and I've gotten anything from fist sized groups to 1".
But as you will read on this forum, the manufacture for rimfire ammo is pretty inconsistent...it's a hunting round, not a target round and no one makes match ammo in WMR.
How this plays out (for me) is that my gun really likes the 30gr Hornady V-max...I've had quite a few 1" groups at 100m...but if I actually average everything out I would say it shoots consistently 1.5moa with that ammo.

1.5" to 3.0" depending on ammo lot. The ammo is manufactured on mass assemblies where the tolerances are not as strict as one would expect from match grade ammo. Any good rifle can only do so much.

Think of it this way. Every round is very accurate. The problem comes when trying to match the ballistic characteristics of that individual round to every other round in your box of ammo.

Unfortunately due to current ammo costs, you'll have to shoot groups on paper with a variety of ammo to find out.

Fortunately, you'll have an excuse to find out what your new-to-you gun is capable of.
