It's because he rounded it to the nearest tenth of a cent.

If I knock off the 12 cent difference per bullet, looks like I would be right about where you are.

Speaking of which, i have like 600 cases that need trimmed. ugh.

I've decided I'd like to pick up another .22 rifle, but I am picky and cheap. If anyone knows of where I can find a bolt action, tube fed, wood stock, excellent condition rifle capable of firing .22lr (if it fires .22 shorts that would be be pretty cool too, but not necessary) would you please point me in that direction?

Tube fed and bolt action? I don't think they really make those anymore. I've seen an old Marlin with that setup, but I know most .22lr rifles that are tube fed are lever action.
I love the Marlin 60 and the Henry Lever Actions. I know for sure the Henry Lever actions will shoot .22 short as well

I personally think that CZ makes the best .22lr bolt action rifles. And they come with wood stocks, they're just not tube fed

EDIT: http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firearms/xt/XT22.asp
There is still a Marlin bolt action with a tube. I think this is the only one left on the market honestly.
The ones chambered in .22lr will also shoot .22 short.

It was an 8lb jug but I forget the name. $153 plus shipping.

Agreed, that combo is going to be tough to find because it really isnt made anymore, but I don't really NEED another rifle, so I am willing to wait until I can find one for sale. I grew up shooting my fathers tube fed, bolt action, wooden stock .22 (according to him the first time I started shooting it I was 3). I have a Winchester 9422 that I love, but didn't realize it is getting to be worth so much more than the ~$200 I paid when I bought it new so I want to "even out" the usage a bit by snagging another rifle that I know I would enjoy as much for the nostalgia as I would for the functionality. No detachable magazines for me - that's one less thing I will have to forget (the link you shared is magazine fed)

I have some old Springfield tube fed 22 I traded for some 45 ammo awhile back. Old iron sights but damn it is accurate. It's probably like a $100 gun, but I love it. They pop up on backpage every now and then. If I were you I'd put an ad on backpage seeking one, you'll probably find some people who have them sitting in their safes, who just never bothered to make an ad for them but are willing to sell.

The second rifle on the page, scroll down, is a tube fed version of the marlin, but I don't think it's offered with a wood stock in .22lr, so I guess you still have to look elsewhere. You're probably gonna have to find one used on gunbroker or something

Chad,

Look around on backpage for some old used Mossbergs or Savages or winchesters or remingtons or what have you. There are a number of the mossbergs that are tube fed bolt actions.

You saw the pic of that 75 year old thing I have,that was actually a freebie. A guy here at work got a Remington 511 the other month at a yaard sale for $22.00. The bolt was crammed into it wrong and the safety was detached but included. He gave it to me, i took it home, spent 20 minutes cleaning it u;p and fixing the safety, and gave it back. now he has a $150-$200 rifle.

I REALLY like fiddling with things, and I'm finding I really like old guns, especially old .22's. I constantly scan backpage for cheap stuff.

Also, you cann never go wrong with a Marlin/Glenfield 60, and they are a dime a dozen (regularly see used ones for like 100-150). But they are semi auto tube fed.

Lol, or you can buy a non-octagon winchester 62 for $1000? lol. If it was octagon it would maybe be $800? Thbis is what my little $200 nickle plated Rossi .22 that you shot is a copy of.

I have a package in transit right now that I'm very very excited about. It will be arriving at New Frontier Armory on Thursday. Blah I hate waiting! But I could not find this item locally.

Also have another package en route that goes with that package, but it's being shipped to me............cant wait!

Man those are some great looking rifles! I especially like that Marlin 60SS, if it wasn't semi-auto I would be all over that! I am pretty firm on no semi-auto though, and single shot doesn't do it for me. I LOVE that Winchester 62, but no way I am gonna spend $1K on a plinker

There are a few on gun broker for like 300-500 in what appears to be similar shape, that guy is way off.
