Planning to buy a new .22 rifle, does anyone have any ideas on what is the most accurate in semi auto, bolt or lever action without breaking the bank?

The ruger 10/22 is about the best you can get and make mods when you have the money. Add a heavy barrel and other parts and it will shoot better than most. The other extreme is a target rifle that is expensive and heavy, with a much higher price tag.

I would prob go with the savage its pretty tough to go wronge. But I well also add that some of the most accurate 22lr's I have shot have been the old single shot coey's. It didnt seem to matter if they were used every day or if you had it behind the seat of the truck all winter you could pull it out go shoot gophers and they were still spot on every time.

I've heard real good things about the Anschutz and the cz rifles as well.. I think they are a little pricey though.

I have two friends that have Henry .22 lever actions and they are acurate. You can put a scope on them if you wish also. My buddy was hitting rabbits at 60-75 yds easy.

Im a little pissed at the country right now

That's like a magazine fed model 60 I believe. Good choice.

Most .22 rimfires will deliver good accuracy. Look at some of the older bolt actions made by Marlin or Mossberg, etc, when they used real walnut for everyday working guns. You can pick them up for $100 or so. If you are a bit handy, you can restore them without worry of devaluing them.

To squeeze the most accuracy from any of them, here are two suggestions:

1) Get lots of .22 ammo and shoot, shoot, shoot. Don't overlook standard velocity ammo, either. My personal choice has been Lapua Master L (the "L" is for large, as in bullet diameter.) Extremely accurate and I love the smell of the Eley primer compound. No matter what .22 I shoot, the Lapua ammo always shines at the bench.

2) Make sure to use a genuine .22 rimfire scope. Some people make the mistake of mounting a typical 1-inch tube scope made for high-power guns. The trouble is parallax, which is particularly noticeable at the shorter ranges a .22 is used. On the other hand, a .22 scope - and, not the kind with the tube diameter of a drinking straw - has the parallax (focal plane) set at distances of 50 yards or so. Scopes with adjustable parallax (AO - adjustable objective lens) are good, if you don't mind a little more expense and bulk.

My personal favorite is a Marlin 39A lever gun. It has the look and feel of Marlin's big bores, takes down easily, and is as accurate as any I have used.

Ditto on the Ruger 10/22. Relatively inexpensive, quick handling, semi-auto and can be as accurate as your wallet allows.
