Rimfire Cartridge Crazy

Much like dropping a big caddie engine under the hood of a beat-up Ford for a county line moonshine run, loading your dusty, sometimes rusty, rimfire truck gun with Winchester’s new rimfire offerings is a great way to squeeze more horsepower out of that tried-and- true varmint gun.

Winchester’s rimfire lineup has expanded in the past few years to include some snazzy new bullets and improved ballistics.

There are probably more than a few shooters out there who would not consider using a rimfire for varmints in the first place, but the little cartridges can get the job done and even have a few advantages over their centerfire big brothers. Rimfire varmint rifles have not equaled the distances reached by heavy-barreled rifles chambered for the screaming .22-250 or even the mild .204 and .223, but a six-pound rimfire is certainly handier than a 14-pound, heavy-barreled rig when crawling up on a groundhog or riding the range in a pickup. Compact and easier to tote, it is more likely to be in your hands when that varmint makes a break for the next county.
