Most often, the most inexpensive ammunition is used. This is OK as far as it goes.

Review: Ruger Rimfire Precision Rifle

Among the most exciting rifles to come down the pike this year is the Ruger Rimfire Precision Rifle. This is a bolt-action rimfire rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge.
