The Ruger 10/22 is the hands down best choice if you're looking for a semi-auto in .22LR. Most will digest a whole brick or two of ammunition reliably without demanding to be cleaned, and that's nice when you're plinking or in a giant gopher patch. The down side is that the sporter 10/22s are not the most accurate .22s out there: most of them shoot a 2" group at 50 yards unless you find an ammo type that your rifle really shoots well (which varies from rifle to rifle), and it is rare for one to print a 2" group at 100 yards...but then most .22LRs won't do any better than that either.

The Marlin is a good shooting budget bolt .22, but the Ruger American will usually shoot tighter groups (around 1" at 75 yards vs 1" at 50 yards in general). My vote goes to the American for the budget .22 bolt gun.

If you want a finer bolt gun without spending the $$$ for an Anschutz, the CZ 455 is a beauty. It has a finer finish, a smoother action, and they shoot smaller groups yet (with ammo that your particular barrel likes). If you want to shoot gophers' heads off @ 75 yards or a bit further, the American or the CZ is your gun. Plus, the CZ 455 offers interchangeable barrel capability, so if you want to shoot .22 magnum or .17HMR (either cartridge will extend your range to 200 yards), $160 will get you another barrel in either caliber, or buy one in either of those calibers and get the .22LR barrel for low cost plinking.

I've got a Marlin model 60. I have no complaints, it shoots straight looks good and is well made.

The real important thing is making sure you use the right ammo and get a good shot placement.

I've owned each, diff models. The ruger always had a better look & feel to it regardless of model. Both are good guns.

That's helped a lot. Only wanted a .22 for the foxes. Wild dogs are another matter but it would involve shooting at night.

I'll look at making an order next week.

Seems that most of us agree that Sturm-Ruger has the best and most reliable .22's.
I got 3 Rugers. 22/45 Mk. IV pistol, an old 10/22 that I'm slowly working on, and a Bearcat that is okay, but I'm not a fan of revolvers.
