Ruger makes fine firearms, I've owned a few and never had problems with them.
My favorite are the 10/22, Mini 14 and a blast from the past,
The Ruger Mark 1 T512, bull barrel automatic pistol with adjustable sights (the T stands for Target).
The most precise and fun gun to shoot at the range. I owned several, put 20,000 rounds through one before the ejector finally broke. they were easily
disassembled, solid and reliable. It never jammed.
Good luck picking one up. They were amazing before most of you were born. Tin can accuracy at 50 yards off hand, every pull of the trigger.
I know you are talking rifles here, sorry I got all teary eyed.
More to the thread question… what kind of ammo?
CCI .22LR copper coated . Its not a copper jacket, just a thin plating of copper to cover the lead. Lead coats barrels, eat the price diff and your
barrel will last a lot longer.
Whetevr ammo you choose, stick with it. Buy a lot of it all at once from the same date and lot. The accuracy is more consistent with one lot number
and your confidence will build as you practice with one brand as opposed to jumping around.
After all, hitting somewthig with a .22 must be more accurate to achieve the desired result. People report taking deer with .22 lR because they were
good enough and close enough to hit one in the head.
Thats skill and patience… squared.
