Northwest Cobb County has the smallest WRF operated by CCWS but is experiencing the greatest growth, due to the availability of land and its scenic setting.
Full aerobic digestion will no longer be required at the Northwest WRF. The aerobic sludge holding tanks will be covered, and odor control provided.
With a 45 grain bullet lubricated and seated in the modern manner with the bearing surface protected, the WRF proved a significant step beyond the .22 long rifle, whose heel crimp left bullets exposed to the elements.
The length advantage of the WRF made it a better shooter than the long rifle in long-cylinder revolvers such as the Colt Pocket Positive and Officer's Match revolvers.
But unlike the .22 Magnum, for which no target or true varmint rifles (as of this writing) have been made, the WRF chambering was available in the Stevens 417, one of their best target rifles which was discontinued in the late 1940s.
Sadly, a number of good guns failed to come back into production after World War II, and the WRF chambering was hard hit.
This year CCI saw a market opportunity and took the plunge with a newly designed WRF round.
The WRF is the only rimfire round currently available with both jacketed and lead-alloy bullets.
While I would not urge anyone to rush out and buy a WRF gun, I notice arms in this caliber sell at gun shows for significantly lower prices than their .22 long rifle counterparts.
