Rifles fill a variety of roles. In the right caliber and loaded with the proper ammunition, they can serve in home defense, target/competitive shooting and hunting.
Rifles and ammunition need to be stored and maintained correctly to be safe and perform at their peak. Here's how to do it.
Ammunition falls into a few general categories. The broadest are rimfire and centerfire. Rimfire loads' priming mixture is placed around the inside of the case rim where the gun's firing pin strikes. Rimfire calibers include the 22 Long Rifle, 17 HMR and the 22 WMR, and are used for target shooting and small game hunting.
Most rifle rounds fall into the centerfire category. These cartridges have a separately-made primer placed in the center of the head of the case.
Bullet design is another important distinction in rifle ammunition, as bullets fall into two main groups: expanding and non-expanding. Expanding bullets are used for hunting and home defense, while non-expanding bullets are used for target shooting, military purposes and hunting certain species of dangerous game. The Ammo Insiders explain the differences between bullet types and purposes in this video.
Hitting your target consistently requires solid fundamentals. Check out these tips for building a strong foundation.
