Rim-fire Ammunition

The rim-fire cartridge has no noticeable primer. Instead, the priming compound is placed and spun into the case rim. When the rim is struck by the firing pin, the priming compound explodes, igniting the powder. This is ideal ammunition for target use, rabbits, foxes and smaller game due to its high velocity and flat shooting characteristics.
