. . . if its rimfire, a Brno #1 makes for an awesome woods roamer - hunting rifle.

If big game (which for our area is whitetail deer), a Remington 600 carbine in .308 Winchester is my go-to. I've used one since 1976 or '77 and see no reason to change - its never disappointed me.

I'd attach a Photobucket picture of them, but it would be fuzzy.

Mine aren't "perfect", but I now have:

1) A 77/22 that Randy at CPC worked on and a Boyds stock.
2) A Winchester 52 reproduction made by Miroku.

For small game its currently a CZ 452 16'' 22lr with a weaver v16. For big game its been a Ruger RLS ultralight carbine in 30-06 with a Zeiss 3-9x40MC for nearly 30 years.

Agreed. The 600 is light and handy. I bought mine used and it was pretty beat up, but I was able to take the largest buck I ever shot east of the Mississippi with it. Same action as the XP-100 pistol, and ultimately, it evolved into the Model 7 action. Model 7s aren't bad either, but they are slightly heavier.

Did you replace the nylon trigger guard on yours?

A left-handed version of every bolt-action rifle ever made.

For .22LR I'd have to say a period Stevens Favorite with a Marble's Tang sight and a Lyman 17 front globe.

For KA A-Zone, a Howa 1500 Mini in 7.62X39 fitted with a Boyd's laminate stock & Leupold 2-7x that weighs 6.5 lbs scoped. For longer ranges or bigger animals, a .308 Norma Mag in a Howa 1500 LA

I would have to say my Marlin model 783 .22 magnum. Great carry gun with plenty of power for rabbits and squirrels.

A lot of nice choices.

I hate to take a high dollar rifle into the field. For a 22 bolt action rifle I like the Ruger 77/22 because they are usually accurate enough and the magazine is awesome.

If I was taking a semi auto, the classic Browning SA-22 is my favorite.

For a centerfire bolt action rifle, it depends on the caliber, but I prefer the Pre 64 Winchester Model 70s or the FN Mausers Supreme action rifles like the Browning Safari. They are both pure “class”.

I am taking my Ruger 10-22 to woods again today with its choate folding stock and slicked trigger. If you properly torque the action screw to where it likes it at about 20 inch pounds, the factory barrel may shoot fine enough for you. This one does. It out shoots my $800 gun. Do not get the super extended mag releases as they get in the way. Just the regular little extender and then also file out the bolt release to work “properly”.

I have 2. A CZ 455 American with a 4-12 VX2 AO and a Deluxe 10/22 with a 2-7 VX 1 Rimfire scope. Gotta have walnut on a hunting rifle(or any other rifle except for an AR). More likely to use the 10/22.

My CZ 452 Varmint 17HMR with a Rifle Basix trigger and Weaver GS 5-20× V EB-X fits the bill pretty good. Although the magazine isn't quite flush fitting (not really a big deal for me). Had a V-24 mounted when I took the picture.

For me my 452 Varmint .22lr does the trick.
Accurate, shoots a wide variety of ammo, nice comfy stock, great balance.
Smooth bolt cycling, reliable magazine feed system, nice hunting adjustable trigger.


So I bough a CZ Scout 452 for 200 bucks and installed it into a varmint stock to emulate my 452 Varmint.



Now my Varmint is my range only rifle & the Scout is my working man's beater small game rifle.
Also just love my 120 dollar Russian TOZ 78-01 is accurate and very reliable, nice adjustable hunting trigger.



My CZ's have a little edge over my TOZ is the stock design & the bolt throw is longer, the TOZ has a choppy short throw.
