    Re: 25 rimfire ammo

    No, and although the demand seems to be there, I doubt anyone will. Too bad, as I wouldn't mind some at a reasonable price either. I've got a couple rifles in .25RF, and I hate to shoot much of my Cannuck ammo up!

    Re: 25 rimfire ammo

    .25 RF ammo was all over the place when I was a kid and I wanted to get a rifle to shoot it. A wise old family friend told me to stay away. He explained it this way:
    "You can buy a button hook for $.25 cents this afternoon if you wanted to. These hooks used to cost $2.00. Do you know why they are so cheap? There are no more boot buttons! Sure you can buy a .25 RF rifle for a real low price this afternoon if you like but there will be no more ammo in 5 years, no one is making it anymore." He was right.
    My brother-in-law has a .32 RF rifle made by Stevens (single shot falling block). A real joy to shoot. I shot 5 of his last 25 rounds. The rifle will be a museum piece when he passes on. He turns 80 this year. The rifle (I believe) turns 110 this year.

    Re: 25 rimfire ammo

    Lots of guns are still around in calibers that no ammo exists for. Not every gun gets fired, even those in calibers that the ammo is readily available for. The old rimfire rifles are no more wall hangers than the minty engraved gun that nobody wants to shoot. The reason is just different. One because you can't get ammo, and the other for fear of harming it.
    I wouldn't hesitate to buy another .25RF or .32RF if the gun was nice, and it appealed to me. I'd love it if I could fire them more, but I've got plenty of others to fire, so it isn't high on my list of must do.
    .32 RF isn't a problem for me. I bought 14 boxes of .32 RF Canuck ammo a few years ago, and I occasionally shoot some in my Marlins that can shoot RF or CF ammo just for fun.

    The .25RF shorts are even harder to come by, and even less guns chambered for that cartridge! Most people who have a gun in .25 RF will be the old .25 Stevens RF. All that I've owned were this caliber.
