    About ten years ago ,Winchester tried to market a larger rimfire based on a nailgun cartridge ,and Savage made a rifle for it.....Seems to have disappeared pretty quick ,but what it did was silenced all those calling for a rerun of the Stevens 25 rimfire round ......plinkers are pretty usedto the 1c a shot cost of 22 rimfire ,and there needs to be a pretty good reason to buy a new gun and ammo costing 10c a shot.....Even the 17 s seem to have withered on the vine,leaving the 22 mag for the very few willing to pay the extra.

    I work down the road from Ruger. You’d think with 5-axis CNCs and EDM that tool and die would have died off, but they employ much of the same fixturing as did Springfield armory, with a modern twist.
    Check out the aftermath photos of some powder storage facilities exploding. Hatcher reports on experiments of shooting straight up, what really happens when cartridges explode in fires, etc. I've gotten lots of enjoyment out of my copy over the years.

    Rimfires are so low cost , i am surprised nobody makes/made a rimfire military bullet.
    I guess with mostly automatic and semi auto one misfire would jam up the gun and so lose that gun for a time.
    Agree one might get 1 or 2 misfires in 100 low grade rimfire 22s

    22 mag is a hot little bullet for its price...and that one can easily carry 1000 rounds makes it a very good choice in some situations.

    ne of the problems with rimfires is that the cases are weaker in the head area which makes them a poor choice for higher powered rounds. If you look at something like a belted magnum the belt is there for a reason and if you section any modern high-power rifle round you will see that the cases are thicker in the head and rim area.

    Also, center fire gives more consistent ignition.

    Military development now is in the field of caseless ammo for guns firing a million rounds a minute...IMHO ,within a few years the soldier wont have a rifle at all ,but a stock of intelligent drones ,maybe the size of a large insect with small chemical payload ....one drone ,one kill ,every time .
