I haven't been squirrel hunting in years but I'm thinking about picking it back up. I'm thinking I'll get a bolt action, magazine fed .22 with an undetermined scope. What do you use?

I shoot mine with a shotgun. I use #5's or #6's. I usually carry my twenty guage pump.

My squirrel rig is a Marlin 22 Mag with a Simmons 8 Pointer scope. I love using the Speer TNT ammo. Absolutely devastating.

Browning .22 lever action with a simmons 3x9x40. Too much of a scope really but it gets the job done.

I got my set up put together today....Ruger 10/22 topped with a Nikon 4x32 rimfire scope. I also picked up a 50 round magazine. Should be pretty deadly on the squirrels.
