    Just a option( ya there all options), there are many 22's out there with plastic/synthetic stocks, and many with wood. I personally like wood or laminated wood because of the weight. Karen has a 10/22 with a synthetic stock and it is a fine shooter and light, but without some weight I find it is harder to hold steady when shooting off hand. Both my Savage and the 10/22 use the same scope and out to about 50 to 70 yards they both do a good job, but beyond that the bolt with it's weight and tighter chamber gets much better groups. I think the action of the 10/22 being a blow back action robs the bullets of power and the loss only shows up past about 50 to 70 yards.

    I wouldn't worry about velocity loss in a semi auto vs bolt action, as there is enough variance in velocity between rounds of ammo in a box/carton /lot of ammo itself.

    The other thing I suspect is the chamber, and the heavy trigger pull. I was thinking of upgrading her rifle with a new trigger and barrel( tighter chamber).
    The differance starts to show up when we are shooting beyond 70 yards.

    Bolt actions are much safer
    Semi auto .22's are a real pain in the butt to clean.To do a proper job they must be completely stripped.
    Then rechecked for point of aim.
    When cleaning any rifle barrel the easiest way to screw up its accuracy is cleaning the barrel from the muzzle.
    The reasons are many,I won't get into them here,anyone interested can simply Google the subject.
    Bolt action all the way.
    Then buy yourself different ammo to try...2's are not as finicky or sensitive as other calibers to different ammo but ea rifle will still have its preferences.

    I like lever .22s for hunting. My Browning is accurate enough for any small game hunting and is a pleasure to carry. The mag tube under the barrel holds at least 10 rounds, never have to fumble with magazines. I have at least 15 .22s in every action and the little lever always comes with me for hunting. I use my CZ 452 if I want to punch paper.

    Any .22 with iron sights will help you become a better shot. Scoped ones not so much.

    I shot air rifles for many years, starting at a young age. Had a single shot bolt action .22 for many years and of course, larger rifles and shotguns too. I firmly believe that using open/iron sights has made me into a decent shot with any firearm!

    Last week I bought a new Marlin 60 with wood stock and I am itching to go plinking soon...

    It does not matter what you use for a sighting system if you do not have proper breathing, rifle/shotgun mounting and a proper fitting rifle/shotgun.
