Look at Larry Moore's test of inexpensive 22 LR's in the Dec 1956 issue of Gun's Magazine.

http://www.gunsmagazine.com/1956issues/G1256.pdf

At Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Larry Moore tested every prospective service rifle from the late 40's up through the 60's. He also was a Nationally ranked competitive shooter.

I printed this issue and gave it to someone who shot with Larry Moore. He pointed at the scope on page 19 and said "I have that scope!".

I bought this Sears Ranger Rifle in 1976, it was made before WWII, probably 1937-39. I had it scoped in the 80’s. It is a prewar Stevens M416 sold by Sears. I decided to shoot it at the end of a 1600 point small bore prone match, just for the heck, and this is how I did with it at 50 yards. With practice I believe I could shoot a 200 with it. These older rimfires will shoot very well, this one has caused the untimely end of a number of squirrels.
