Default book recommendations?

I ordered a book by Thomas Batha entitled US Martial .22RF Rifles.

Does any one have recommendations on other .22 trainer books?

I have "Rifleman's Guide to Rimfire Ammunition", 2006, First Printing, by Steven Boelter. In it he tests many, many common brands of rimfire ammo and reports group sizes and velocities. Shooting one lot in one rifle doesn't prove much, but you can get some idea of performance. Of course, ammo changes and many brands have come and gone since 2006. There are some chapters on Lot Variation, Rim Thickness and Loaded Round Weight, and Barrel Tuners (to mention a few) that contain some good information. I would buy it again. Just don't expect miracles.

For position shooting, read Ways of the Rifle.

These are good for non-rifle-specific shooting tips, also: http://www.jarheadtop.com/Books.htm (Fulton armory also sells them)

This is to my knowledge the only book on U.S. cal.22 trainers.Other books will have individual chapters on the trainers that will give greater detail on them but there is no one single reference source on these other than Batha.

If your interested in other nations training rifles give this sight a good look over http://www.rifleman.org.uk/index.htm It has a training rifle section.
