Centrefire vs Rimfire

In Australia, rifles are commonly used for hunting, sport shooting, and farming. Two popular types of rifles are centrefire rifles and rimfire rifles. The main difference between the two is how they ignite the gunpowder in the cartridge.

Centrefire rifles use a firing pin to strike the centre of the base of the cartridge, which then ignites the primer compound and ultimately the propellant. These rifles are generally more powerful and accurate, making them suitable for long-range shooting.

On the other hand, rimfire rifles ignite their cartridges by striking the outer rim of the cartridge base. These rifles are generally less powerful and have limited range, making them more suitable for beginner shooting and varmint hunting.

In Australia, centrefire rifles are more commonly used for hunting larger game and for long-range shooting competitions. Rimfire rifles, on the other hand, are used for pest control, target shooting, and for introducing new shooters to the sport.

It’s important to note that when purchasing rifles in Australia, there are strict licensing requirements and regulations that must be followed. In addition, proper safety training and handling should be observed at all times to ensure a safe and enjoyable shooting experience. At Beretta Australia our extensive range of centrefire rifles includes some of the best such as Sako 90, Sako S20, Tikka T3x and more. In addition to that we offer some of the best for rimfire enthusiasts such as the Tikka T1x or the Sako Quad series.

  • Break-Action Rifles – These rifles get their name from the way they operate, as they break open like a book to load and unload the cartridges. They are typically single-shot firearms that are used for hunting or target shooting. Break-action rifles are simple to operate, easy to maintain, and are generally quite reliable.
  • Lever Action Rifles – These rifles use a lever mechanism to load and eject cartridges. They are often used for hunting and shooting competitions due to their fast cycling rates and reliability. Lever action rifles are also known for their iconic appearance and are frequently depicted in Western movies.

What licence do I need to buy a rifle?

In Australia, firearms are regulated by state and territory laws, and anyone who wishes to own or use a rifle must possess a valid licence. There are different types of firearm licences, each corresponding to a specific category of firearms, including rifles.

To obtain a rifle license, an individual must first meet certain eligibility criteria, such as being a citizen or permanent resident of Australia, having no criminal convictions, and completing a firearms safety course. They must also provide a genuine reason for owning a rifle, such as for hunting or sport.

The licensing process may take several months to complete, depending on the state or territory. Once your licence has been approved you can submit a permit to acquire your rifle which has a mandatory 28-day waiting period. It is also important to note that in Australia, rifles are subject to specific storage requirements to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. Rifles must be stored in a locked purpose built gun safe that meets certain specifications, such as being bolted to the floor or wall.

In summary, obtaining a rifle licence in Australia requires meeting eligibility criteria, completing a firearms safety course, submitting an application, paying a fee, submitting permit to acquire. It is also crucial to comply with storage requirements to ensure the safety and security of the firearm. For more detailed description of how to obtain your firearms licence check out our article.
