There are 22 caliber centerfire cartridges such as the .22 Hornet and others, but ordinary 22 cartridges (short, long, long rifle) are rimfire.

Not necessarily. Centerfire and rimfire refer to the cartridge. Those with a primer in the center of the cartridge base are centerfire, and those with propellant packed in the rim are rimfire. Popular centerfire cartridges include the .223 Remington, .380 Winchester, .30-30, .30-06, 7.62x39, 7.62x54R, etc. The most commonly known rimfire cartridge is the .22 Long Rifle. There are bolt action rifles manufactured for each type of cartridge.

Let's use the correct terms- BULLETS are the part of a CARTRIDGE that come out of the barrel. .32 Cartridges are now centerfire, but many years ago were rimfire. .32 rimfire guns have not been made in about the past 100 years, and are considered obsolete. There are also several DIFFERENT .32 centerfire cartridges- .32 Auto, .32 S&W revolver, .32 Long, .32-20 revolver, etc.

.32 long what? That's a cartridge designation, and even at that it could be .32 Long Colt, .32 S&W Long, .32 Long (rimfire), or .32 Long Rifle (Centerfire).

Rimfire cartridges do not have a primer at the center of the base of the cartridge- the firing pin strikes the RIM of the cartridge. The most common rimfires are 22 short, 22 Long Rifle, 22 Magnum and .17 HMR.

The question can't be answered without knowing what type of shooting and what "gun" you mean (hand gun, long gun, centerfire, rimfire, muzzle loader, etc..)

.32 Long Rimfire ammunition is currently available from Old Western Scrounger, a division of Navy Arms. This is new-manufactured ammunition, produced on contract in Brazil by CBC. This is the only source of useable .32 Rimfire and it isn't cheap. This ammunition works well in the Stevens "Favorite" rifle and should work in any other firearm chambered for it. The .32 Short Rimfire is not available. Dixie Gun Works sells adapters to allow use of rifles and pistols in .32 Short and Extra Long Rimfire by using a .22 "acorn" blank as a primer. The Short adapters can be used in rifles chambered for the .32 Long, but the Extra Long adapters cannot. The .25 Rimfire hasn't been loaded since 1941 and all remaining stocks are gone. It is completely un-obtainable except for collector ammunition that is far too expensive and probably too old to shoot.

No. Georgia law requires rifles or handguns used for deer to be 22 cal CENTERFIRE or larger, with an expanding bullet. While .220 Swift, or 22-250 is legal (with the right bullets) a 22 Long Rifle (rimfire) is NOT legal.

With a muzzle loader. But legaly a felon cant. Posess black powder. But can own the gun as long as the barrel cant be interchangeable to make it a centerfire, or rimfire rifle.

It is located on the rear of the cartridge. If it is a rimfire, such as .22 Long Rifle, it is in the folded rim of the cartridge. Larger cartridges, such as the 30-30, are centerfire, and the primer is located at the rear center of the cartridge.

box of 25 long western sold for47.50 so i think if it works 300 is fair price

All firearms that are in caliber .22 Long Rifle (LR) or 22 Long or 22 Short are rimfires. If you look at the face of the bolt, you can see the firing pin. If it is in the very center of the bolt face, it is center fire. If at the edge of the face, it is rimfire.

If you're talking about the difference between a .22 short or long rifle and a .25 ACP, the .22 is a rimfire cartridge and the .25 is a centerfire. Also, the .25 is .03 of an inch larger in diamter.

In general, no. The .22 LR is a straight sided rimfire cartridge 1 inch long. The .223 is a bottlenecked centerfire cartridge almost 3 inches long. Totally different. The 22 LR CAN be shot in a .223 by the use of a special adapter.

22 long is a type of 22 rimfire. Others are CB, short, long rifle and a few others .

No. MOST of them are. The most popular "22" in the world is the .22 Long rifle cartridge, which IS a rimfire- as is the .22 Short, .22 Long, .22 Extra Long (obsolete), .22 WRF, and the .22 WMR. HOWEVER- there HAVE been .22 centerfire cartridges, such as the .220 Swift, 22-250, and a European cartridge, the .22 Velo Dog. .22 caliber means that the bullet is 22/100ths of an inch in diameter. None of the centerfire rounds will interchange with the .22 LR.

The Stevens 1915 Favorite is not a pump-action rifle. It is a single-shot. First we need to figure out which model you actually have.

No. The .32 Long RIMFIRE is an obsolete cartridge no longer made. A .22 LR will fall all the way out of the barrel.

The .22 Long Rifle is a rimfire, whereas the .223 Remington is a centerfire cartridge. The .223 uses a longer 'spitzer' projectile vs. the rounded projectile of the .22 LR. The .223 tends to be a heavier projectile, and has a much higher velocity than the .22 LR.

No. The .22 LR is a straight sided RIMFIRE cartridge. The Hornet is a bottlenecked CENTERFIRE cartridge. The chamber of a Hornet is MUCH bigger- you could not get a Hornet into a .22 LR chamber- and the firing pin would hit in the wrong place.

First you have to determine exactly which .32 long cartridge it is chambered for. Both S&W and Colt have a proprietory .32 long centerfire cartridge and either of these should be available at any good sporting goods store. There was also a .32 Long Rifle Centerfire cartridge that was discontinued early in the 20th century, but according to Cartridges of the World, either the S&W or Colt cartridge MAY work in these guns. A gunsmith would have to make a chamber cast and measure it to verify this. But if it is chambered for the .32 Long Rimfire cartridge, you are probably out of luck. A few specialty companies occasionally make a limited run of .32 RF, but it is very expensive and hard to find.

Yes, if somebody says ".22 rifle" they almost certainly mean a rifle chambered for the .22 long rifle (or .22LR) round. The .22LR is a rimfire, as are the .22 short, .22 long, .22 CB, the .22WRF (Winchester Rim-Fire), and even the .22 Magnum (properly called the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire or .22 WMR). There are other calibers of rifles that use bullets about the same bore size, but they have different names. They are higher-powered calibers. They are centerfire rounds, not rimfires. Examples would be the .22 Hornet; .222 and .223 Remington, .220 Swift, and .22-250.

Cornell publications might have what you are looking for.

Firearms ammo is divided into rimfire, such as .22 Long Rifle ammo, and centerfire, which has a primer in the center of the rear of the cartridge- such as .38 Special, 9mm, .308 Winchester, etc. Soft nosed refers to the composition of the bullet. Rather than having a full jacket of copper/nickel gilding metal (military ammo has that) a soft nosed bullet has the soft lead core exposed at the tip. These are typically used for hunting or self defense.

I would start at numrich gun parts corp. and then try on the web.
