Leatherwood Hi-Lux

Rimfire cases have the priming compound built into the case - specifically, around the inside of the rim. The firing pin of a rimfire rifle hits the rim of the case instead of the center. They do not have a separate priming cap at the middle of the head.

The rim protrudes around the circumference of the head of the case, and is not technically a separate component of the case. I list it separately here because of the unique functions it provides. It is where the rifle’s extractor grabs the spent case to pull it from the chamber.

Cases come in many sizes, but only two general shapes: bottlenecked and straight walled.

The case is the part of the cartridge that holds all the other components together. Before we talk about all the things that will be stuffed into it, it’s a good idea to know where the stuffing happens! The case is also known as the brass.
