My name is Drew, about a month ago I purchased my first Ruger. (Ruger American .17hmr) I am new to Ruger, and new to .17 HMR as a varmint round. I am not new to weaponry or hunting and have been accustomed to .22 for small game and .223 for larger varmint applications. I've put approximately 500 rounds through my Ruger American and due to retiring my dad's Nylon 66 I'm realizing my knowledge of .22's is a bit antiquated. I'm more than thrilled with the accuracy of my .17 and am looking to ruger for a .22 and to this forum for other .17 enthusiasts.

Welcome to the forum and you have a nice assortment of guns there. Yeah I might warn you that you will probably be buying more Rugers.

Welcome to R/T.
When I found out collectors were HOT to get Nylon 66's, I sold mine. ($$$)
If your 66 is in at least fair shape you should be able to trade/sell for a 10/22 and come out of the deal with some extras.

It being Grandpa's 66 its going to stay in the family collector case. I did however go out to a friend's today and cracked a squirrel in the head at 50yards with his 10/22 reminded me a lot of a mini 14 ranch rifle just smaller. I loved it. How are the rules about posting kill shot pics?

When I read the rules I don't remember reading anything about that.
You might go thru them to be sure I didn't forget. Ain't as young as I used to be so...... I'm sometimes a little forgetful. :eek:

Wouldn't hurt to read the rules anyway if you haven't already done so.
We have lots of hunters here, some have posted pic's of their kills. I can't see a problem with it.

Thanks guys! The bullet was a Winchester varmint lead free polymer tip, 15.5 grain.

10/22s ,IMO, are underestimated for accuracy for a semi auto.

I have one with a bull barrel and a few minor adjustments, that shoots as accurate as any bolt action.



btw, good shot.
