... why I think I "need" a Ruger American Compact rifle in .22 Magnum?
I already have several .22lr and an AR15 in 5.56/.223. I have a Single Six with .22 magnum cylinder- but rarely shoot it.
I can't come up with any reason for the rifle other than I just "want" one. It might be due to the variety and ample supply of .22 magnum ammo now on the market. I recall quite well that less than 2 years ago .22 magnum was the hardest ammunition to find anywhere. There are probably a dozen different .22 magnum loads now and I would like to see how they perform-but not sure why or even what I would hunt/shoot with any of them.
it might be just to have a bolt action as I do not currently have any bolt action rifles. It might be because it is one of the few rifles left with factory iron sights.
I'm looking for some "valid" reason other than just my personal desire to have another Ruger.
Come on folks, help me out.
