Savage A22

Does anyone out there have a Savage A22 in 22lr? If so what are you thoughts on the rifle? I'm looking to purchase one to squirrel hunt with this fall. Will top it off with a bushnell banner 3X9X40. Ammo will be Remington golden bullet in 36gram weight.

I have a Savage but it is a MKII bolt action. Bought it cause it was on sale @ Wallyworld for $129 and I wanted a bolt 22. What i wanna touch on is the scope. I got a Bushnell 22 scope cause it was on sale @ Midway and cause I had never had a "22 scope". These are parallax adjusted for the 22 cartridge @ shorter ranges. Mine has BDC and I dialed it in using CCI Quiet ammo. I am using that ammo because I live in a neighborhood where there are houses within a couple hundred yards of me, a highway within 1/2 mile and I got a squirrel problem. They like to eat fruit and I have fruit trees.
Anyway, I sighted it in @ 25 yds and am capable of using the BDC points to reach out to about 75 yds with the ammo I use and the view is pretty crisp and clear. I would suggest to anyone to use a decent "22 scope" cause the parallax is set for the shorter ranges. You decide if you want to go budget or high $. My Bushnell was about the same price as my rifle and I am very happy with it!

Savage A22

I'm expecting my A22 22lr to come in next week. Planning on using EGW Picatiny mount, Bushnell Banner 3X9X40 scope, and Remington Golden ammo. Hoping to get it rigged up and sighted in before the end of the month.

This is a 22 magnum, right? I bought some CCI A 22 Magnum ammunition and have been shooting it in my CZ bolt action 22 mag and it is very accurate. Might try you a box of that stuff. It comes in 200 round boxes.

I’m really liking eley edge. But mini mags are pretty good too. See what your rifle likes. Accuracy trumps speed and energy with 22s imo. Squirrels aren’t exactly dangerous game. Haha.

What made you buy an A22 over say a 10/22? Just curious

After reading some of the reviews, I like the idea they are headspaced and then the barrel is locked in place with a lock ring, and just liked the way it felt in my hands ( length of pull is a littler longer than the 10/22).

Shot my A22 in this past weekend. I really like the way it feels and shoots. Tried 2 different brands of ammo (Remington golden bullets and CCI subsonics) both shot extremely well for this rifle. Good enough to head shoot squirrels out to 30+ yds. Can't wait for squirrel season.
