10 Great Rimfires for 2015

10 Great Rimfires for 2015

There are a number of reasons to love rimfires. Nostalgia is at the top of the list. My first gun was a single-shot Savage with iron sights and a straight-pull cocking mechanism that doubled as a safety.

Ammunition is still cheap, and in most parts of the country, we're seeing more of it on the shelves. Low-recoiling rimfires produce minimal muzzle blast and have helped me practice trigger squeeze.

They're an excellent choice for early-season squirrel, winter cottontail and vermin elimination missions.

The rimfire remains one of the most versatile, economical and shooter-friendly cartridge designs.

Here are my picks for the best new rimfire rifles for 2015.
