I've owned a pile of different rimfires over the years, but have settled on a few rifles that are here to
stay. And you know what? Rimfires are a lot like 303s, you can never have enough.
Are you a traditionalist? Maybe the only rimfire you own is a 22 and you wouldn't have it any other
way. If you're a new waver, the 17 HMR or a 17 Mach 2 may be more your style. Of course, some of us love the 22
Magnum. No need to argue. There are enough different cartridges and rifles to satisfy everyone.
I don't really care what style I fire off the bench, as long as it's a bolt. I'm not a hardcore benchrester,
but do enjoy tiny groups. I bought a CZ 452 for my semi-serious shooting.
For most hunting chores, like rabbits, birds or squirrels, only a pump will do. For larger critters,
or to stretch the range out, a 22 WMR does the job. I'll even admit that I have a 17 HMR kicking around the gun locker.
I prefer tubular magazines for hunting. We all have our preferences, right? If you'd like to

Here are some of my favourites.
