    Interesting - was trying to find a link for the pail o' .22's and saw this:

    Awesome, congrats Jason! Keep an eye on gunbot for .22LR deals. Stay logged in at midwayusa and be ready to pounce when you see a deal. Your local gun shop may keep limited quantities behind the counter for reasonable prices so it doesn't hurt to ask. Remember that after you reinstall the barrel pull back the bolt and let it slap against the barrel several times before loading and firing it. Supposedly that makes sure everything is mated correctly. Post or PM with any questions.

    What's your favorite ammo for target practice with the 10/22?

    I'd experiment a bit on my own, but .22LR seems to be unobtainable locally unless you stalk the delivery trucks. It's easy enough to get online, but shipping charges will eat me up for small random orders. I'd rather just order a case of something known good. What do you think of Federal Auto Match Target?

    Sounds a little overkill, and bare lead. Federal Champion and Winchester Super X (both 36gr CPHP) work well for me in the SR22. There's the tried and true CCI Mini mag as well. My advice, go with something copper plated (you're going to be loading a lot in your mags, meaning at lot of lead on your fingertips if you don't go copper plated), and avoid Rem golden bullet that puts yellow "plating" flakes everywhere including the insides of your gun.

    Jeez, those prices make me sick to my stomach. Pre-panic I got the Fed Champion 525 and Win Super X 525 for 3.xx cents a round. Minimags have always been a little more expensive. Just trying to say, don't pay .223 prices for 22LR
    When you're ready to shoot at the pests, go with CCI Velocitors or Stingers, if you can find them.

    Yeah, .22 lr is still cheaper to shoot than any center-fire ammo, but the difference used to be much greater before the panic two years ago..

    This is why I consult experts!

    Got myself some Federal Champion copper-plated ammo on the way. Also ordered two BX-25 magazines, and a Volquartsen automatic bolt release because I see what you mean about the ergonomics. Having self-administered a clue-by-four about why I was shooting high at a distance (rental was likely sighted for 50-75 yrds), I'm excited to get back into it.

    Next question: recommended cleaning stuff? The Ruger manuals are agnostic as to specific tools and chemicals.

    I think everyone at RT does it different I like Hoppe's with cotton patches and a fiberglass rod (off label-use for a HF wire running kit after a contractor borrowed it and snapped an end off), followed by CLP. Once in a blue moon I'll run a nylon brush down the bore, but not every time. One thing that we all agree about, only go in the direction of the bullet down the bore, never back and forth.
