I respectfully now disagree. Ive recently spent some time with a 10/22 and im having great luck with it.. Mind you ive got a 18 power with 50mm sitting on top and a bi-pod out front, that said ive zeriod and have no problems (minus the odd zinger/shooter error) keeping CCI 40 grain's at or under 2 inches at 100 yards.. Ive read many saying that the 10/22 although reliable its not very accurate. For a short rifle im completely satisfied with this little gem. 2 pennies.
