This is a follow-up to the feature on Ruger 10/22 rifles from earlier this week. As a proud user of two of these rifles, and friend of many others who use them also, I’ve come to learn a couple tricks to keep them running well, especially during extended use or in rough weather.
Ammunition makes a difference
I’ve run many brands of ammunition through my 10/22s. Ammo that has an exposed lead bullet is usually less expensive, but fouling is accelerated. Many brands that work perfectly well for just a bit of shooting in a repeating rifle, or for extended use in a single-shot rifle, begin to have failures to eject when the 10/22 action has become dirty and hot.
There’s one brand of ammunition that my friends and have had great success with in our little Rugers. It’s CCI’s 22 Mini-Mag load. At around 18 cents per round, it’s not the cheapest 22 ammo, but not the most expensive either.
