Rimfire metallic silhouette is an inexpensive yet very challenging and exciting form of shooting. Nothing beats the pleasure of hearing the metallic ping when a target is hit.
The ranges at which the rimfire metallic silhouette targets are shot are as follows: Chickens are placed at 40m, pigs at 60m, turkeys at 77m and rams at 100m.
