Mainly length and energy. From the shortest (and weakest) to the longest (and most powerful) .22 BB cap, .22 CB cap, .22 Short, .22 Long, .22 Long Rifle. There are also obsolete .22 cartridges no longer made- .22 Winchester Auto, .22 Special, and .22 Extra Long. The .22 Winchester Rimfire (WRF) and .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (WRF) are larger in diameter than the other .22s, and will NOT interchange with them. There are also centerfire cartridges with 22 in the name, such as .220 Swift, 22 PC, 22-250, but they have no relation to the other 22s.
22 Short, 22 Long, or 22 Long Rifle rimfire interchangeably.
.22 Long Rifle is a longer cartridge.
There are 22 caliber centerfire cartridges such as the .22 Hornet and others, but ordinary 22 cartridges (short, long, long rifle) are rimfire.
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.
There is a .22 WRF, and a .22 WMR. WRF is Winchester Rimfire. Bigger than a ,22 Long Rifle, but shorter than a .22 WMR- Winchester Magnum Rimfire. If someone is using the term .22 MRF, it is an inaccurate term.
Only if it's a .22 Long Rifle revolver. It's not compatible with the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire.
While the rimfire cartridge was popular at one time, and there were more than 50 different rimfire cartridges, in different calibers, ranging from 2mm (about .08 caliber) to larger than .56 caliber. Today there are only about 7 different rimfire calibers still being loaded- the 17, 17 HMR, the .22 Short. Long, Long Rifle, the .22 WRF, and the .22 WMR. As far as different makes and models of rimfire rifles, there have been THOUSANDS of different rifles.
.22 short, long, or long rifle rimfire ammunition only.
"Regular .22 rimfire ammo IS .22 LR.
The .22 Short is the oldest of the current firearm cartridges. The .22 Short was created in 1856, the 22 Long in 1871, and the .22 Long Rifle in 1886. There have been other .22 rimfire cartridges that are now considered obsolete, such as the .22 Extra Long, .22 Special, .22 Winchester Auto, .22 Remington Auto, etc. The .22 Winchester Rim Fire, and the .22 Winchester Magnum rimfire are still made, and the Magnum is very popular.
The original was in caiber .44 Henry rimfire. Currently in caliber .22 rimfire. Which one?
The length- short, then long, then long rifle- also the power. Long rifle usually has a heavier bullet.
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.
22 caliber is the diameter of the bullet. 22 cal. comes in BBcap, short, long and long rifle
The overall length of a .22 Long cartridge is .888 inches, whereas the overall length of the .22 Long Rifle is 1 inch.
Because there is no replaceable primer in rimfire ammunition it cannot be reloaded.
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.
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.
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.
22 caliber rimfire cartridges shorter and less powerful than the 22 long rifle. They used to be quite popular and inexpensive, but are now becoming hard to find and cost as much as the long rifle shells.
The answer is probably stamped on the barrel. Does it say .22 Hornet? Most likely it says .22 LR or .22 Long Rifle. Two other things: The Hornet is a center-fire cartidge, "regular" .22's, be they shorts, longs or long rifle, are rimfire, having the priming mixture in the rim of the cartridge case. Look at the firing pin and see where it is located compared to the case head. On the edge?(rimfire) or centered?(Hornet) The chamber for the .22 Hornet is larger in diameter than the .22 rimfire, as the Hornet is a bottle-necked case. A .22 rimfire case will fall down inside the chamber of a Hornet and be loose. IF YOU PUT A RIMFIRE CARTRIDGE IN AND IT FALLS DOWN IN THE CHAMBER BE SURE IT IS OUT BEFORE YOU PUT ANOTHER CARTRIDGE IN OR YOU WILL HAVE AN EXPLOSION AND PERSONAL INJURY!!! My apologies. I believe the 22 Hornet is a straight or tapered case. I was confusing it with the 25:20, which is bottle-necked. The 22 Hornet is a "bottle neck" case, the rimfire has a straight case and will fill the chamber of the Hornet.
The Big Valley - 1965 Rimfire 3-22 was released on: USA: 16 February 1968
