AtlSaiga 25 Posted August 3, 2012 Report Share Posted August 3, 2012 Random thought. I know way back in the day, all sealed cartridges had rims, I think even center-fire rounds. Than at some point (when was that btw?) they lost their rims and went with what we have today (not sure if the design has a specific name). But it seems like .22LR and shot shells kept the rims. Why? When the industry was converting over to rimless, they didn't they hop aboard. Imagine what ridiculous awesome guns we'd have nowadays if .22LR and shot shells weren't rimmed. What does this hold for the future? It seems like its too late to change now. Will shot-shells and .22 ever loose their rims? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
