Any rimfire fans?

Recommended Posts

I have a Browning A-bolt .22 that I swapped an Argentine FM High Power for.   That's about the best trade I've ever made, the A-bolt is extremely well made and lacks no fit and finish just because it's a .22.

On the other end of the scale I have a Romanian 1959 trainer that's as rough as a cob.   Aside from weak ejection, it shoots pretty well.

I have a CZ457 in 22lr, another 22WMR and a 17 Hmr. I really like them. I have a Savage in 17HMR which is a good shooter too. The Ruger mk4 and Taurus TX22 are fun too!!  

Rimfire ammo is less expensive than centerfire so I get to shoot a lot more. I have a 200 yard range at home so it's great for rimfire but a little short for centerfire, so I generally have to pack everything up to shoot centerfires. Another thing is that rimfire suppressors are a lot cheaper too. Generally great shooting firearms that can be a lot of fun for not too much ca$$$$h. Even match quality ammo is cheaper than centerfire, including reloading.  

Absolutely that is the main reason I have stuck with 22 long rifle firearms

Between 5 and 15 cents a round definitely beats $1 a round and up give or take

Lack of recoil is also kind of nice considering I do this mainly with my 10 year old

I've got a Volquartsen Summit, Taurus TX22 Competition, and a Sig P322 with a Sparrow 22 to swap around. Subsonic 22LR is a hoot to shoot. Subsonic ammo is 8cpr delivered all day long and popping off rounds without earpro is priceless.

Do you have any issues with the sub rounds cycling the P322?  I have a SR22 that needs a threaded barrel for my Hydra AL (when it gets out of jail)

Yeah I put 2 mags through it and had nothing but issues. Instead of figuring out the root cause, I bought the TX22 Comp and have had zero issues with it so the P322 just sits in storage.
