RIM THICKNESS
Voodoo or magic? Depends. Find out in this book segment. As always, testing was performed using detailed methods and controlled conditions. Learn about the effects and the tools of this ammo preparation procedure. ALSO discussed are the effects and influences of weighing loaded rounds as a means of segregation.

LOT VARIATION
This is a subject on the minds of serious shooters everywhere. We all have heard that ammunition performance varies from run to run. Steve meticulously tested the effects of varying lots of the same ammunition and goes into detail about how to follow this process yourself.

RIMFIRE AMMUNITION DESIGN
This chapter documents the origins and evolution of the rimfire cartridge, including a look at state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques employed by Eley.

CHAMBERS AND CHAMBER REAMERS
My favorite book segment! This material not only explains the differences in all the different rimfire chambers available, but documents their influences on a variety of ammunition types, from store brands to the finest target ammo available. It's amazing information that no serious rimfire shooter should do without. Four different chambers are tested.

BARREL TUNERS
Getting the last inth of accuracy from a competition rimfire rifle might mean the use of a barrel tuner. Steve cuts through the myths and misconceptions and clearly reveals the science behind these devices. Of course, using a tuner is explained in detail, and sample targets are included in the discussion.

CLEANING
In Steven Boelter's mind, this book was not complete unless it included a lengthy segment on this "touchy" topic. I agree. The best ammunition in the world won't shoot like it should unless you know how to keep your rifle working. This chapter talks about tools, techniques, and the all-important topic of "seasoning" a rimfire barrel so you get maximum accuracy at the next match or shoot.
