THE .25 STEVENS RIMFIRE
Limiting small game to birds of a size less than turkey, and not considering trajectory as a factor in landing our bullet on the mark, this cartridge will do the work. It kills squirrels and rabbits very cleanly when struck in the fore part of the body. For a combination of killing qualities on birds without undue smashing it has few rivals. Its power can be considered as roughly double that of any of the .22 rimfires. The rifleman who uses it upon game at ranges beyond sixty yards must be an expert judge of distances.
The .25 Stevens rimfire has accomplished very fine work at two hundred yards off-hand. While the .25 Stevens Rimfire is a splendid short range target cartridge, superior even to the long-rifle, yet its use has been restricted by the increased cost as compared with the .22 rimfires.
