One of the nicer .22 LR rifles today is a "Weatherby" bolt action. It's actually an Anchutz action in a Weatherby stock, but they're really pretty and shoot very well.
Coopers are the Cadillac of the domestic market, costing around $2,300, but if you're willing to pay for quality, they're fantastic.
Savage MKII deluxe model is a very good rifle and quite accurate. Magazines aren't great, as someone has already mentioned.
Remington still makes a good bolt action, the 547, which is a higher-grade 504 but it's a Custom Shop exclusive and cost/value may be better with Cooper.
If I can't be with the rifle I love, I love the rifle I'm with!!
