Guns & Ammo TV: Rossi Rimfire Rifles

When Americans want to have fun, plink, hunt small game or teach the basics of shooting, they turn to the .22LR. For these adventures, you can’t go wrong with Rossi. The RS22 (“S” for “semiautomatic”) and RB22 (“B” for “bolt action”) are must haves for any rimfire enthusiast.

Guns & Ammo’s Rifle & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand and Kimberly Heath-Chudwin, gunwriter and police officer, agree that a bolt-action rifle such as the RB22 is best for young shooters since they can’t just dump rounds downrange without learning the fundamentals. The RB22 is ruggedly built and features fiber-optic sights with a dovetail base for ease of use and adjustment. When a shooter is ready for a semiautomatic, the RS22 is ready with the same ergonomics and fiber optics sights.

These rifles are lightweight, affordable and, most importantly, encourage safe handling. The RB22 can be had for $190, while the RS22 cost less than $150. Paired with affordable ammo, you can have a day’s worth of fun at the range with ammo to spare.

Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
