    I am tring to decide between a Ruger 10/22 or a Mossberg .30-06. I know the 10/22 has a shit ton of options but the Mossberg would have a lot more killing power. Does anyone have this mossberg? What do you think of it? Any tips on either?:x:

    What do you want it for? Of course the mossy will have a lot more power. You can't even compare the 2 really.

    Mainly just for target shooting. I've never had a rifle so i want something to practice target shooting with scopes and stuff. I thinking the 10/22 would be more tacti-cool but i cant really hunt with it. Im just not sure of the reliability of the mossberg. I know they make good shotty's but i dont really know about their rifles...

    umm im assuming you have a good deal on the mossberg? mossberg isnt known primarily for their rifles as they are for their bang-for-the-buck shotguns.

    I'd rather have a 308 over a 30-06, just for the cheap surplus ammo. Even if you spend more for a 308 now, you'll save in the long run on the ability to buy such cheap ammo.

    However, go for the 22lr. super cheap ammo, fun, good starting gun.

    The new mossberg ATRs are suppose to be HORRIBLE rifles :hsugh: I've handle one and it felt/operated like crap and the magazine reviews tend to agree with this.

    From the prices Ive seen at Walmart, Ive already come to the conclusion that mossberg rifles were total crap and thats why theyre cheaper. Especially since they are roughly the same price as a Remington 710, which I understand is garbage compared to the 700.

    10/22 definately for a target rifle. Youll be using alot of ammo, and .22 lr is about 500 rounds for $10. Id get a larger caliber if it were for hunting though. Plus 10/22 are fun and you can do a whole bunch of stuff to them.

    I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree with Krott, If you do decide to go with something bigger then the 10/22 check out some of the Savage rifles pretty good bang for the buck.

    So a 308's ammo will be cheaper.... thats good! Any certain models you could recommend? I want something that will be all black, with synthetic stock. I had just seent the Mossbergs for around 200 and wasnt sure if it was any good or not. What is the average price for a Savage?

    Uh, get both? They aren't the same thing any more than a F250 and a Hundai are the same thing.

    Here's my 10/22. BSA reddot, youth stock from Brownells, Volquartsen trigger, sear, extended mag release, and buffer, plus barrel cut to 6" and threaded 1/2x28. Currently sporting a Bowers Paradigm silencer.

    Hmm. Sometimes the pic isn't loading for me. So here's the URL if it doesn't load for you.
    Click here

    All ammo is subsonic in it. The bullet hitting the target is louder.

    I think I've decided on the 10/22!
    Which 10/22 is the best one to get? I see like 8 different versions of the ruger 10/22. I like the synthetic stock, but i heard that if your going to customize it, then the parts off of other ones may have higher resale? Any input is appreciated....

    Did you click the link? I just clicked it and it worked. Anyhow, the difference in the sythetic and the wood is the stock, and the stocks both don't sell for much. If you're going to do any tweaking, get the base model. No point in paying for parts you're just going to take off. Go to http://www.rimfirecentral.com and do research.

    that's a sweet suppressed sbr 10/22. Funny to think that the taxes on that gun were more than the original cost.

    if u are gonna customize it, which a lot of people end up doing then u only need the reciever. so buy the cheapest one i think its the 10/22 carbine, and sell the rest and keep the reciever when u decide to get customizin'

    And look at pawn shops. You might find one in the $75 range, sell off the parts, and have a free receiver.
