My recent 10/22 build

I've owned this 10/22 for about 3 years now,and it's had between 700-1200 rounds though it-mostly bulk Federal and Remington.
I finally broke down and convinced myself that it needed "upgrades".
Midway's sale on the A&B bull barrels,and Boyd's direct price on the Blaster stock are what broke me,and I couldn't put it off anymore. I ended up with the Blaster stock in their "woodland camo" laminate pattern, an Adams and Bennett 18" .920 blued bull barrel, and a Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x50 scope.


I took it out to the range after I assembled it and did a bit of "bedding" with graphite pads cut to fit and compress to hold the first 2" of the barrel and action into the stock. The compressible graphite works really well and molds to the shape of the action in a manner similar to 'glass bedding, without the mess involved. Anyway-here are the targets from 50 yds with a few different types of ammo that I had available:
All targets were 5 rounds except the Blazer-for some reason I ended up with 6 rounds in that mag.
CCI Blazer:


Federal Classic:


Remington Thunderbolt:


Remington Golden Bullet(bulkpack):


Remington Target(Walmart 100rd box):


Aguila Match Rifle:


Dynamit Nobel Target Rifle:


It seems to really like the Aguila and the Dynamit,with the Remington "Target" coming in really close behind those two. This was all done shooting from a simple bag front rest and with a totally stock, untouched trigger group. I can only assume that some of the"spread" was with me pulling the rifle off target a bit with the heavy trigger pull,and that it will do better with a lighter more crisp trigger assembly.
Plans are to get the Power Custom barrel/receiver scope mounting rail drilled/tapped to tie the barrel and receiver together and get the Power Custom trigger parts to bring down that heavy rough trigger pull.

Great shooter, it appears that 50 yards is an insult to the rifle. I have a stock 1022 with a red dot and am able to get good accuracy at 100 yards. Your rifle will surprise you with great accuracy at 100, if you haven't tried it before.

Wow those are great groups for a brand new barrel. I'm willing to bet they even get a little better after a couple hundred rounds down the pipe. Where did you find your graphite pads for your bedding?

I have a small piece of a sheet of graphite gasket material here left over from making some custom gaskets for my car.

Very nice looking rifle. You did a great job.
Most of the groups were just one hole. Your'e either like me where I shoot one ragged hole and have one or two just outside of the hole because of a slightly off shot, it's a bad round of ammo. The match ammo makes a big difference. In your case, I think it was the cheaper ammo that caused the fliers. As soon as you went to good ammo, your groups went almost perfect. Great Shooting and good work on your Rifle.
With my old eyes, I think the shots outside of the group were my fault, but with Rem Gold, it's hard to say. Most of your targets had groups that were one ragged hole, great job.
I usually shoot 10 shot groups instead of 5 which doubles my chances of an Oh POOP round.
Your rifle likes the match ammo like most. The Rem gold sure shoots lousy groups. Do shoot some 100 yd groups, I think you will be pleased with the results.

I am working on an accuracy inhancer for the 10-22. It's something new.
Here are 2 ten shot groups, shot at just over 50 yards with a new stock Ruger 10-22 carbine. Stock except for a metal trigger housing and trigger job.
The shots were taken across the hood of my truck with cheap Rem Gold bulk pack bullets, not exactly great ammo for shooting groups, better for plinking beer cans. It's hard to shoot groups over the hood of a truck
Both had a couple outside of the 1" ring. Not sure if it was me or the ammo, most likely me.
Not too bad for a carbine, not even broken in yet. These were the first shots.
I think my gismo helped compared to the groups without it, but I really need to shoot from a good bench with some Wolf Match ammo.
This will show me far more.
The majority of the shots went into one hole on one target and a circular group on the other.
I really can't wait until I can shoot under ideal conditions with good ammo.
I was using a 4 X scope. I just put a 3-9 power scope which should help.
The rifle shot better with my gismo, so it shows promise.
I'll let you know how the results are. What do you think? I think it has promise. The dot was 1", the inside dot of the other was 1"
The groups are nothing to be proud of, but with a new base model carbine rifle, Rem gold bullets and a not very stable rest, I'm not too dissapointed.
Now if I were shooting from a good table with good ammo and more rounds through the rifle, I'd hit myself in the head.
The one group with 8 in one ragged hole gives me some hope. The other group, I just don't know. Maybe I was not settled down as well on my hood. They are all over the place.


Best Regards, John K

If you get a trigger job done it might just fix the problem with you pulling the rifle. Wouldn't hurt either.
