Just got a Remington 597 and wondered what ammo people have put through semi-autos to get a accurate,reliable fed before I get some in. Cheers Jim

I use some Winchester  T22 in a 10/22 and a Buckmark

My CMMG likes mini mag and Eley Match 

My Anshutz 54 (bolt ) is at its best with Eley Match or some old Lapua target stuff

If you'd wanted accuracy you'd have bought a bolt action.

It was brought for fun not for “accurate target shooting” 👍🏻

First thing to do is a get a new titanium extractor...the std ones are not good.

The old magazines were not good either, but there are newer versions about.

They benefit from an internal tune and spring kit in the trigger.

Much the same as a Ruger really.

Fair enough thanks for the advice, not had a chance to set it up and try it yet, shooting every day of the week at the moment on the shoot. Will look into the pieces you have mentioned. Thanks.

.22 accuracy is directly related to the quality of barrel and tolerances of the chamber

Most mass produced semi-auto .22s have fairly generous "Sporting chambers" to cater for the whole gamut of ammo available...as the man above would say "in the world!", and to ensure reliability

Chambering to tighter tolerances can cause issues but for the most part can be rectified

If bolt guns are more accurate i's not strictly because they're bolt guns

Literal translation: "If you spend loads of money on Gucci aftermarket parts for your .22 SLR, it can be as accurate as an out-of-the-box bolt action."

Let two equally-talented riflemen select two .22LR rifles (of comparable quality) at random from the rack; one an SLR, one a bolt action. Let said riflemen experiment to find a brand of ammo that each rifle "likes". Let the two then fire groups at a respectable distance, e.g. 100 yards.

I have a crisp £5 note that says that the bolt action will win every time.
