10/22 recoil buffer

would installing a recoil buffer in my 10/22 be a good idea if I was going to be firing some really hot ammo in it or does it not make a difference on wear and tear/usable life?

    This is exactly why I use them. Make sense, can't hurt, don't cost much.

    yes there is
    he sent me two pieces in a give away . I am embarrassed as I can not think of his name tonight . he bought lengths of the rod of the other auction site [:D] and cut them . I followed his lead and did the same with my other ones .. also I bought a couple that were metal but had a sleeve of urethane or rubber on them

    I have them in all my 10/22 rifles and while I can't say they help, they've never caused a failure either. If your "real hot ammo" is somewhere near the 17HM2 in pressure, I'd say to definitely use the buffer(maybe a heavy bolt knob, too).

    I got the Yellow Jacket ones but after a while they started to crack so I sent them back and they replaced them. But I now use he ones with the metal rods sleeved in urethane? They were sold as for the magnums.

    I never saw the need to install one, but I really don't shoot my 10-22 very often.

    My 22 is made of all steel.

    The hottest 22lr rounds go about 1250fps, but with lighter bullets. Unless you've modified your 10-22 to shoot 22-250s, I can't see a problem with or without a piece of rubber on the bolt stop.
    I got some Shok-Buff gear for an SKS, didn't see, feel or notice any difference over 1200 rounds or so.

    1250? I've got some that approach 1700fps....
