What Ammo In Your 10/22 TakeDown?



Log in to see fewer ads
Me and my son was out at the range with his 10/22 takedown in what I thought would be really good ammo after seeing it perform in my bolt action. Eley Semi Auto Benchrest. Well you know the rest of the story it did not do well.

https://youtu.be/-X6zMZoKujU

Still yet CCISV does better but only .6 or .7in groups at 50yards maybe thats all we should expect. I have shot Eley tenex in it and still CCISV shot better.

To be fair this is a factory threaded replacement barrel so he can use a suppressor. this barrel has yet to have 100rounds down range. Maybe I just need to go out and burn up some federal automatch with it that I have plenty off.

The barrel to receiver is tight fit exactly ast stated by the manual 3 extra clicks to get it tight.

looking for your thoughts.

1/2 at 50 yards thats moa. So yours are a little bigger. Thats pretty good for any unmodified Ruger 1022. The TD model is not known for its tiny groups. Perhaps its the design of the gun. The chamber in a little vibrating tube may be the culprit, the TD assembly attached to the barrel might be, who knows. Ive got one that shoots a little better than yours and one that shoots a little worse. Im working on them , upgrading the internals, changing the torque on all the screws and trying to get a little more accuracy out of them. And they like cci sv too!

Good luck, and have fun

the take down is built more for hikers and campers who want something easy to pack along to plink with, benchrest was not in the plans

it's a rimfire, and as such they don't always do what you expect them to do when it comes down to their favorite ammo selection...just be happy when it likes the cheaper stuff

if yours is shooting ~3/4" groups at 50yds, be satisfied with that

+1 The TD is not a target gun. IMO just find a reliable ammo that shoots good enough and leave it at that. I've been down just about every road there is as far as improving the accuracy of 3 different TD's and came to the conclusion long ago that it's not a bench gun. It's a rifle that was built for a particular purpose and it does a good job at it. Just because you can't sit at the bench and shoot 1/4" groups all day doesn't mean you can't still enjoy shooting targets with it. Just don't throw all kinds of $ into expecting it to be something it's not. I've been down that road and it's an expensive way to end up back in almost the same place that you started.

If you're at .6" or .7"with a mostly stock Takedown, you're doing well. For several hundred more, you might squeeze another .1" or .2" out of it. That's about what I'm getting here.

I am of the opinion that the only thing holding back a stock 10/22 is the trigger. Get the trigger pull light and consistent and you will shoot better groups.

It seems you already found some ammo your gun likes. Next time you go to the range try this... Fire a shot at your target. Locate the hole you just made and place the crosshairs directly on top of it (or in it if your magnification is high enough). Now fire a group while holding directly on the bullet hole. I'm betting your group will be tighter. Aim small miss small!

No argument about the OEM trigger on a 10/22 being awful. But that's not the only thing holding it back. I have Kidd triggers in all my 10/22's, TD's included. I also have aftermarket barrels on all of them. My non-TD 10/22's are all capable of shooting 1/2" or less 5 shot groups @50 yards (after lots of aftermarket support on all of them). My TD's just aren't capable of that kind of accuracy. Sure I can get a 1/2" group, but not consistently. The design of the TD just does not allow for the same type of accuracy as a non-TD.

Maybe I got lucky, but my takedown shoots very well with the stock barrel. Good enough for head shots on squirrels out to 50+ yards which is all I need it to do.

No you didn't get lucky, that's the kind of thing this rifle is for. Hunting, plinking, and even informal target shooting. I'll say this again, it's not that they are inherently inaccurate rifles, they're just not bench guns. I love my TD's because they do a great job at serving the purpose that they were intended for.

Cci mini mags mostly, but have been toting power point 42 grain Winchester now that it's feeding through the rifle.

I have not figured out what shoots best in my new build yet.

Ruger 10/22 Take Down model 11112
Tactical Solutions X-Ring Take Down Barrel
Tactical Solutions X-Ring Compensator
Ruger BX-Trigger
EGW 0 MOA Picatinny Scope Mount
Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock
KIDD Innovative Design Buffer
KIDD Innovative Design Auto Bolt Release
KIDD Innovative Design Extractor
KIDD Innovative Design Firing Pin
KIDD Innovative Design Bolt Handle w/Guide Rod & Springs

I just got to the range for the 1st time with it on Friday (6/26). I had a limited ammo selection with me and after spending A LOT of wasted time trying to sight in the rifle, with a temporary scope (Nikon Prostaff Rimfire II 4-12x40 BDC 150 in Warne QD low rings.) I finally managed to get lucky and get it mostly dialed in. I had 3 types of ammo with me.
CCI Mini-Mag 40Gr.
CCI Blazer 40Gr.
Remington 22 Thunderbolt 40 Gr. (never shot any this day)

I started out with the CCI Mini-Mag as it is the highest quality of the three. This is where all my headaches started. All my shooting was done at 50 yards with no wind. The best 5 shot group I could manage with the Mini-Mags was 1.74" with the bulk of the groups averaging closer 2" or more. I tried the Blazer and things got a lot better and groups dropped to around .84" with the best being .64".
I also brought along my cheapy plinking rifle, a Savage MkII GL with a Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 scope, sitting cheap Leupold Rifleman extra-low rings, on it. I know I paid $199.95 for the rifle and I believe the scope was about $120 when I bought it years ago. Well, the Savage shot rings around the TD. With the Blazer I was getting groups between .36" and .85" with the best being a 3 shot group measuring just .35", the next being .36" group with two shots in the same hole. The bottom line is every rifle is different and I need to really find what this rifle likes to eat.

.350 and .360 @50 yards with a Savage shooting Blazers? As far as the TD .640 is actually really good accuracy for it, especially with that ammo. You can shoot the most expensive ammo there is and your not going to get much better than that.
