For some time I’ve been wanting a bolt-action .22LR for plinking and basic target practice. Especially with all of the cheap ammo out there. Much of it burns so dirty that it can be troublesome for most semi-automatics, but not with bolt or lever -actions. Not to mention the fact that they generally slow down the rate of fire which can increase accuracy and save money on ammo at the same time. Now let’s see how Ruger’s 8301 test drive went…
What first drew my attention to Rossi’s Circuit Judge surely was it’s unique look. The idea of a 9-shot .22LR/.22 Magnum revolver with an 18.5″ barrel mounted to a rifle stock is pretty amazing and draws a lot of attention from everyone that catches a glimpse of it. If you appreciate long guns, it is a sight to behold.
