22 shorts can be used in any 22 cal. weapon. however, some 22 rifles require long or long rifle 22 bullets. AA: Normally you use 22 shorts in a 22 cal revolver. 22 shorts use pistol powder. It burns much faster than rifle powder. Thus, a 22 short bullet is going as fast as it is going to go after it has travelled about 4 inches. A 22 long or long rifle uses rifle powder. The powder burns slower. It has finished burning when the bullet is about 20 inches down the barrel. A 22 long rifle bullet has very little force when shot from a pistol. The powder is still burning long after the bullet slowly left the barrel. So use pistol ammunition for a pistol and rifle ammunition for a rifle.

The .22 Magnum is slightly fatter, and longer than the Long Rifle cartridge. The .22 Long (not Long Rifle, just Long) is rarely seen today.
