I have one with a Fajen Sil. stock and love it! I normally use CCI mini-mags HP for general shooting/hunting. The Remington Gold Solids might shoot just a bit better. Deadly on tree rats out to 75-80yds!
I had one but sold it. It had the best trigger of any Ruger 1022 that I ever tried. It was only accurate with expensive ammo though. With RWS and Eley, I would get 1/2 inch groups at 50 yds. With regular brand ammo, CCI Standard, Remington, Win T22, it would only do 1" to 1.5" at 50 yards. I had a 24X scope on it.
My Marlin 39 and my TC 22 can match the 1" to 1.5" groups, and my old Mossberg M44US can go under 1" with CCI Standard Velocity with the issue peep sight.
So I sold it. It was a good rifle, and because the trigger was so good, I was tempted to put a standard weight barrel and a standard stock on it, but it cost $300 new, and I didnt think it would be worth spending another $150 just to come out with a nice sporter.
