There were rimfires in lots of calibers. I've looked several times at old rolling block Remingtons in. 32 rimfire, but it seems I won't buy a gun I can't shoot.

Nice list, some good newer rounds out there.

And the old .22 long now obsolete, I remember in the 1960s, 1970s using them in my cherished Winchester 290, 15 LR, 17 L, 21 S as fast as you could pull the trigger. Ahhh, memories. :)

Used to be .25 Long and Short, .32 Long and Short, .38 Short and .44 Henry Flat. All were as late as the 1930's. Also the .22 Winchester Rim Fire (same diameter as the .22 Magnum) and the .22 Extra Long, & .22 Winchster Automatic

Aren't you glad you asked the question

Don't forget the 9mm rimfire shotguns. Someone asked about one of them within the last couple of weeks. I wouldn't use it for duck hunting, but I know a guy that shoots squirrels at his bird feeder with one.
