Most of the serious centerfire shooters I know use rimfire rifles for practice and fun. Many top competitors, such as German Salazar, shoot both smallbore and rimfire matches. Some gun systems are even capable of switching between rimfire and centerfire barreled actions in the same stock. In our recent Readers' Survey, about 60% of respondents wanted us to add some rimfire coverage to the website. So this new forum is a start. Feel free to talk about any topic--plinking, hunting, silhouette, and target competition. This is an ALL-caliber Rimfire Forum so share your thoughts on the new 17s,17 Mach2 and 17 HMR) as well as 22LR and 22 Magnum. Have fun, Mr. Moderator :comp: Here's my 17 Mach 2, built by Stan Ware of SGR Custom Rifles. Expect an extensive report this spring. We think this round is capable of surprising accuracy, with concentricity-sorted ammo.
