I have a Ruger 22 mag. It is the heavy barrel stainless with lamanated stock. A friend of mine has one and is is real accurate. I can't get mine to shoot better than 2" to 3" groups at 100 yards. I shot several other guns, 257 weath.,270wsm and 300 SAUM and shot good groups with them so I know it was not my shooting. I have tried 5 different types of ammo and 2 different scopes. I hardly ever get rid of a gun but I am about ready to trade this one. I expect a good 22 mag. to shoot 1" to 1 3/4" 5 shot groups at 100 yards. Now can someone tell me what the most accurate 22 magnum they have shot is? I like the winchester leveraction but I am affraid it may not be any more accurate. I have heard very good things about the CZ bolt action rimfires. The Marlin bolt actions are suppose to shoot good but most of them have hard trigger pulls. I want to stay under $500. If anybody has any helpful info, please pass it on.
