Your Opinion on the More Accurate .22LR Rifle for Club-sponsored Rimfire Challenge (was Competition) Contest?

I'm new to this competition and need your advice.
I messaged the host to confirm that the Ruger 10/22 and S&W M&P 15/22 are eligible for the rifle portion.
I know that the 10/22 has a longer barrel (18.5" vs. 16.5")
Other than testing both out at the range, has anyone found one more accurate than the other, both kept in stock condition?

10/22 is a very popular rifle for Appleseed. Probably 90% of the rifles on the line are 10/22. I am tempted to call it the de facto standard Appleseed rifle.
A bolt gun will put you at a disadvantage in the rapid fire stages. It can be done, and done well, but you have to be quick to cycle the bolt.

Get yourself a USGI sling.

Or a Magpul RLS sling.

Both work well for hasty and loop slings.

Use the sights/dot/scope of your choice.

Most importantly be sure your rifle and ammo are reliable. Get out and shoot. It has to go bang every time, and feed and eject properly.
