    I wish I had the nerves and eyes to use a rifle made to hold a nickel sized group at 100 yds. Youth is wasted on the young.

    I know most ppl mentions CZ and Savage bolt actions for accuracy and maybe they are the most accurate but I have to say my Browning BL-22 is extremely accurate from what I can tell...surprisingly so....it shoots much much better than I can and i'm not a bad shot. I think sometimes the lever actions (in general) gets a rep of being less accurate than they actually are because they don't get the same attention...ppl just use them with iron sights and say they're "accurate enough"...but the bolts get the super scopes put on and ppl fiddle with the trigger pull and other equipment....now I haven't put a scope on my browning bl-22 either but I bet if I did it would hold it's own against many bolts. Just a hunch I have from shooting it.

    1/2 minute of angle at 100 yds. with a .22lr.....hmmmm You may be able approach such a lofty goal, however....

    If you can lower your standards a bit you may consider a 10-22, chuck the factory barrel, for a premium fat one with a match chamber, a trigger job, bed the fat barrel in glass and free float the action, put a DECENT parrellax adjustable scope on her, find the sweetest lot of ammo, practice, practice, and on a perfect day you may come close!

    It's a Marlin, it's a .22, it doesn't come with any sights, but I'm sure it will group within a Ĺ" at a 100 yds. Has a 26" barrel. It just isn't a rimfire.

    I doubt it. The heel base design required with the case and bore diameter in the .22LR pretty much eliminates this level of accuracy at that range. A rounded, heeled and slightly hollow base that has to be undersized by the thickness of the case, and then obturate to full groove diameter just does not have the consistency needed for stellar accuracy at longer ranges.

    True 1/2 MOA accuracy at 50 yards with very high quality match ammo is a possibility, but most experts accept that .22 LR dispersion increases at ranges beyond that. In fact if you look at and measure 50 yd and 100yd small bore targets you'll see that increasing non-linearity reflected in the sizes of the X-rings and 10 rings. For example, the 50 yard conventional prone A-27 target has a .359" diameter X-ring, and the 100 yard A-25 conventional prone target has a 1" X-ring.

    When I can get consistent 1 MOA accuracy at 100 yards from a match rifle shooting high end match ammo I'm pretty happy. When I can get the occasional 10 shot group from a sporting rifle with mid range match ammo, in the 1" to 1.25" range at 100 yards, I am also happy.

    In my experience however, manny people shooting an occasional 5 shot 1 MOA group at 100 yards with their .22LR will call that "MOA" accuracy, when it's really not, and is just the right hand tail of the rifle's normal distribution - but if they are happy with it, it's good enough. Where it gets problematic is when they start claiming they have a 1 MOA rifle and start implying it does that on every consecutive 5 shot group. That makes all the other (honest with themselves) shooters start wondering what they are doing wrong as they can't get similar accuracy.

    I have a Remington Model Five bolt 22lr (Savasta Arms) with a BSA Sweet 22, that will shoot less than dime size groups at 50yds with Remington Thunderbolts. At 100yds I cant hold it still enough to shoot better than quarter size groups.

    Both are 5 shot groups.

    Weatherby makes a nice bolt action 22. The Mark XXII
    I have one of the old Mark XXII autos - it's a pretty acurate rifle.

    Then I have a CZ 453 in 17 HMR - that one will hit a quarter at 100 pretty regularly!

    I've also read here of people shooting pretty tight groups with the old Marlin 39A.

    Just bout any Marlin made 22LR bolt gun is capable of nickel sized groups at 50 yards with good ammo.

    but frankly NO sporter weight rifles(even Anschutz ,etc) will be capable of that standard at 100 yards consistently under real world conditions.

    Most shooters are not either..
