for the difference in price between a 10/22 and a 77/22($500 give or take) I would have to shoot roughly 25,000 rounds out of the 10/22 where as the 77/22 is just getting sighted in. I would never call that a smarter investment. all of the trigger control and shooting discipline that you learn with a bolt action you can also learn on a semi auto, the semi does make it easier to shoot up your ammo in a hurry but 25,000 rounds still takes a heckuva long time to shoot not matter the gun.
