The Rim-fire Cartridge
In the rim-fire cartridge the primer is set in the rim of the cartridge and the firing-pin of the gun strikes the rim hard enough to put a dent in it and this explodes the fulminate.
Nearly all .22-caliber rifles are made to use rimfire cartridges, as this is the cheapest ammunition that can be bought. There are .22-caliber rifles that use center-fire cartridges, but a rifle that shoots a rim-fire cartridge will serve your purpose just as well as a center-fire within its limitations.
