22" factory stainless.



Log in to see fewer ads
I read somewhere that the 22" stainless factory Ruger barrel will shoot CCI Stingers?
I know it said in the manual that my 18" blued would not.
Is the 22" SS chambered differently?

The manual should always be followed, however you may need to read it over again. I think it states the target rifle has a match chamber and stingers should not be used. All other factory 10/22 barrels as far as I know have a sporter chamber in which case stingers should not be a problem. I would regard the manual before taking anyones word.. also maybe others will chime in as well, I have never used stinger ammo, I'm not sure if you would gain anything over high velocity ammo with a 22 lr in real world hunting. 22 magnum would be a real gain tho !!

Post Stingers in 10/22

Clint got it right - the manual says;

"Stingers should not be used in the Target Model 10/22."

All the other factory 10/22s will shoot anything labelled "22LR."
(Subsonic, Standard, High Velocity, Hypervelocity, including Stingers.)

That is NOT in the owners manual.

okay, so it doesn't state that they won't work in the SS barrel.
but will they even load?
Aren't stinger casings longer??

I mean it's not a huge deal, but it would be nice to shoot some stuff my old 18" wouldn't shoot.
Like Aguila SSS rounds. WOW this 22" shoots them with surgical precision.
I love it.

Also what the difference between a sporter chamber, and a match chamber.
I see that a lot but I have no clue what it means.
I'm still pretty clueless as far as barrels go.

I guess that I should have stated at the start that the 22" SS that I have on my receiver now is not the one it came with from factory.
I originally had the 18"blued barrel.
So that's what my owners manual is for.
that should explain my partial ignorance towards the different chambering, and ability to shoot particular ordinance.

So...
there's a difference in the chamber between the 18" blued and the 22"SS
what makes them different?

Also since my rifle was originally the 18" model is the bolt face, magazine, or receiver any different?

Lightbulb Barrels/Chambers

Moo Cowliber,

Now we are getting somewhere!

1. Your barrel is NOT a Ruger Factory Barrel. Correct?
2. The paperwork for your aftermarket barrel says
"Stingers should not be used in this barrel." Correct?

(The owners manual for a Ruger 10/22 Rifle/Carbine says:
"Stingers should not be used in the Target Model 10/22.)

But Walmart sells a Deluxe Sporter Model 10/22 with a 22" Stainless
Steel barrel. (It's a Ruger factory barrel/chamber.)

So I assumed you were speaking of THAT 22" barrel. Not so.

If your Manual for your AFTERMARKET barrel says "No Stingers,"
then DON'T use them. They may damage your barrel.

The brass case of Stinger ammo is LONGER than standard 22LR ammo.

Your Barrel has a smaller/shorter chamber (to make it more accurate)
than a Ruger factory barrel.

If you put a Stinger bullet in your chamber and close the bolt - you
will drive the bullet into the rifling of your barrel. NOT good.

Does that clear things up for you??

There is a thread (in blue) at the very top of this page (Aftermarket barrels)
that shows the Dimensions of different 22LR chambers. It's very enlightening.
Simply stated, the shorter and narrower the chamber, the better accuracy can
be obtained with that barrel.

What brand name is your barrel? It should be printed on the top center
of your barrel or on the widest part of your barrel.

Sorry I don't always explain things well.
I DO have the Wally World Special 22" SS barrel.(ruger factory part)
But the rifle originally had the 18" blued barrel.(ruger factory part)

So I'm assuming then that the 18" barrel doesn't allow stinger or longer ammo.
But the 22" SS wally world special does???

Post Ruger Factory Barrels

Moo Cowliber,

Both the 18" Blue and the 22" Stainless are Ruger Factory Barrels.
They both have the SAME chamber. It's called a "sporter" chamber.

The chamber in both barrels is long enough to accept Stinger ammo.

I also have a Walmart 22" Stainless barrel. I shoot Stingers OFTEN
without any problem. Also try Aguila SuperMaximum ammo.
Those are even faster than Stingers.

You can safely shoot any ammo labelled "22 Long Rifle" (22LR).

So go out and buy several different brands of ammo.
Then go to the range and shoot them from your gun.
See which ammo cycles the bolt everytime.
See which brand hits the target most often.
That's the brand you want to stock up on.

Every gun seems to prefer one brand or bullet weight in particular.
Finding out which one is half the fun.

In the mean time go ahead and do some shooting.

Sporter chamber will shoot almost anything..... but how well is another story.My 1st 10/22 purchased in 1973 won't shoot stingers worth a darn but one of my internationals shoots them very well,just try different AMMO and see what works but don't shoot stingers in a BENTZ or match chamber
