IMO you need to be very honest on your accuracy expectations. If benchrest accuracy is what you want, buy a high end rifle and feed it high end ammo. For me I have several rifles. The 2 I shoot the most is a Savage with a GM 10/22 barrel on it and a Kidd barreled 10/22. They both shoot very well and has held it's own in many online and local matches. I may be building a CZ in the future. With that said if money was no object, but it is, I would want a custom 40x like Nakas.

^^^This, I'm learning quickly the limitations of my $375 rifle (mainland price). But for the price and cheap ammo I'm shooting, I'm happy.
My whole reason to getting into 22 was the cheap ammo. So to buy the more high end stuff, defeats it's purpose. But I do have boxes of the good stuff saved for friendly competitions. I'm pake.
The wife is in the planning phase to building a KIDD. Her budget would probably be in the $1200 range without optic. And guess who's paying for that....This guy (thumbs pointed inward). She so far has decided on a KIDD action, match barrel, and single stage trigger. Brownell's receiver. Still looking for cool looking stocks, Vudoo was to expensive.
