10-22 Accurizing thoughts

I'm a retired gunsmith and Scott at S&S Sporting and myself have been working on a couple of new ideas to increase the accuracy of the 10-22.
We are still in the first part of testing. (We also have a few ideas for the mini also, just takes time and money)
Anyway, I bought a new 10-22 Carbine as a test mule.
The plan was to test the new stuff on the carbine, then get a new stock and bull barrel and continue with the tests with the bull barrel.
Starting with a stock Carbine, we are going to test and document every stage of improvement from trigger job on up. I've already got a metal trigger guard to replace the plasic one.
Anyway, I bought the book on improving the 10-22. I didn't learn a great deal, but did learn a few things, It was not a real in depth book, but I was pretty sure it was not going to be when I ordered it.
What I found interesting was the barrel comparison.
The best shooting barrel (a Kidd) only shot about 1/10th of an inch bettter than the Ruger heavy barrel target model.
I'm kind of figuring that rather than buying another stock and barrel, for not too much more, I can get the heavy barreled 10-22 and have another 10-22.
The experimenting would then continue with the new rifle.
I know it will still take some more $$$ to upgrade the new rifle, but with all the features the heavy barrel 10-22 has, why spend the money for a new stock and barrel. Also, I would have two rifles instead of just one.
The only real variable it would take out of the mix is the action, but I would make sure that both actions had identical trigger pulls. I don't think having two different actions would skew the results all that much.
What do you guys think ?
Best Regards, John K

Sounds good

Sounds really good. I will follow with great interest. I'm a beginning gunsmith and want to build the most accurate 10/22 I can.

Ahhhh, ok...take notice the post you're responding to was dated May 2012. Now note the "dishonorable discharge".
