The .22 Long Rifle caliber is the most popular ammunition and firearm chambering in the world. It’s a backyard plinker, small-game hunter, tactical trainer and Olympic medalist. The humble .22 LR is undergoing a massive resurgence in the United States, and around the world. Topics covered in this full-color book include: complete coverage of semi-autos and how they work, bolt-action accuracy advice, match shooting tips, DIY precision gunsmithing, hunting with rimfires, and the future of the rimfire market. There is also a detailed, illustrated history of rimfire cartridges.
