Default .22 mag options.

I absolutely love .22 mag for predators, looking to buy a new .22 mag sometime soon. I have been looking at some so far I am looking at the ruger american in 22 mag I was just wondering how it would be with farther shots with different rounds how the accuracy would be? I am really picky with .22 mags & I am pretty set with a bolt action, also was really looking at the model 547 remington custom shop rimfire in 22 mag, I love remington & like how it's close to the model 700, wondering if anyone has one & how they like it? Was also wondering if anyone has a volquartsen I am really liking those as well. I want really good accuracy, Don't mind if it's a little heavy.

Check the CZ .22 Magnum and the Anshultz...I've got a Savage Model 93 and it shoots pretty good.Im thinking I'm using the Hornady 35 grain bullets in it?

I have an Anschutz 164M, a Sako Quad, and a Ruger American. I love all three of them and especially the first two. The Anschutz and Sako love the Win. 40gr. hp's, while the Ruger likes the Hornady 30's. When I say loves/likes I'm talking .75 or better at 100yds.
Those Rem 547 are really sweet. I'd like to have one in 22lr. someday.

I'd look Hard at the CZ's. I have a model CZ 452 and love it. Accuracy is awesome and, I Am a true lover of the 22 mag.
As far as Remington these days, blah, I won't be buying anything made from them in the past 10 years or more. Just not sure the quality is there anymore I'm...

Let us know what you decide and go with.
Best

I love 40grjhp. But now use the 17HH for a little more reach on coyotes.

I don't them anymore, but if I had to I would definitely use CCI Stinger hp and try to keep shots 75yds and under shooting from a rest.

I use winchester 40 grain power point they shoot great in my .22 lr & I have killed a few coyotes & 4 bobcats & over 100 fox this past winter. longest shot on a cat being 145 yards shot placement & good bullets is key if using a .22.
