    Im interested in a accurate .22 with possible bipod lower, power scope option.
    Looking for good experience for under $400.

    Ditto. Then again, I use a Marlin model 60 with Redfield Revolution much,much more and still have $$$ left over for a gross of boolets.

    A good experience is a great way to describe my Savage Mark II BV model. Mine has a 4.5-14X Burris Fullfield II and I use a Harris benchrest bipod that tilts. I have about $600 into it. A decent compromise to keep you around $400 is the Burris 3-9x scope ($150) and a less expensive bipod. I like the Burris scopes because the ballistic plex reticle works great with rimfire ballistics, and they are a good value.

    i like burris scopes too.

    i have a savage 93R17FV i bought at bimart for $169 topped with a Mueller 8.5-24 X44 that i bought direct from Mueller for 159 plus frieght and a set of fity dollar luepold rings. this would leave enough change for a ten dollar chi-commie bipod keeping the package under four hundo.
    viola.
    thinking bimart just ran the savages for 179 again last week.

    Savage MK II + accutrigger + EGW scope rail. If you can find a CZ 453 Varmint that's another great option due to the set trigger.

    My trainer rifle is a MK II in a "Tacticool" stock from Boyd's. Millett TRS-1 scope on a 20 MOA rail.

    I shoot down at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, and it will put 60 consecutive shots into 1/2". Mine is especially fond of Eley Target ammo.

    The adjustable cheek piece is home made.

    That's good considering the ammo you were using. Go fork over $5 for a box of Eley and you'll see that shrink in half.

    Felt like chiming in. These guys said it, I've got both bolt and semi Marlins and Savage rifles and they are some serious tack drivers!! Semi autos are nice but my good ol bolt actions just seem to punch paper like heavyweights! Some of my old Marlins would amaze you with what they can do after 30-40 plus years of action and their iron sights. Let alone dial in that scope and paper as well as varmints have no hope! But off of what you sound like you are trying to achieve I'd say do up a savage with bull barrel and trigger upgrades and with some half way decent glass you'd be set. Let alone something really nice to look through like Tim K has on his setup and it's a done deal. Stocks are stocks if you know how to shoot but a nice aftermarket one can really make it a lot more comfortable when shooting so you can really snug that thing up to your cheek and you wont even feel that dreaded .22 recoil. :p I must say this, be careful as I can personally tell you that it's really easy to take a couple hundred dollar .22 into the AR/AK price realm. But at least you'll probably hit more then the AK could...:winkkiss:

    Here's what I used to shoot:

    pop_wm_2211048.jpg
    pop_wm_2211044.jpg

    A Remington 513T. The money is all in the barrel and trigger. This rifle will virtually put every shot in the same hole at 50 feet from a rest. We always used standard velocity target ammo. The 10 ring on a 50 foot target is .25". You had to shoot 100 prone, high 90's sitting, high 90's kneeling, and high 80's standing to be "in the money" in a four position match. I would imagine that with today's optics at 50 yards it would be hard to beat. This one's going for $650. We used to pay $150 for one.

    I am going to go with this as well, these are bolt action and very accurate, a good scope and they are awesome.
    I use CCI Stingers in them and they work well.

    Marlin model 60

    straight off the shelf it's very accurate.

    Then again if you want one to build upon, get a Ruger 10/22

    My Model 60 in unmolested condition shoots just as well as my Ruger 10/22 that's been built.
