The Best Rimfire Hunting Cartridges

First, I suppose, it's important to list the contenders. Here goes, from the smallest diameter commonly available. I'd love to include all of the really obscure stuff, because it's so interesting and, in many cases, particularly capable, but if you can't find guns or ammo for it, well, it can't be in this article.

Peruse the following, weigh the options and hit us with your arguments.
