. My 60 will feed shorts, but there's not enough oomph there to cycle the action. If I'm shooting anything other than LRs , I grab my 39. It eats everything .

AND- just to confuse matters thoroughly- there WERE other .22 rimfires. pretty well considered obsolete. and loved mainly by cartridge collectors. There was the .22 Extra Long, the Winchester .22 Auto, Remington .22 Auto, and the .22 Special. There was even the .22 ILARCO, a shortened .22 Magnum made for the American 180 machinegun. The .22 V/L CASELESS cartridge made for the Daisy.

NONE of those interchange with .22LR. But they are kinda snazzy in your cartridge collection.

The Remington 552 will feed .22 short, long, and long rifle in a semi-automatic platform, although I have found that shorts don't have enough oomph to chamber a long rifle.

Just for you.
I plan on buying some more 22 shorts soon experimenting to see what is more accurate in my gun and buying whatever's available

Rossi/taurus has the 22 revolver carbine, with both cylinders. Only time id ever consider that particilar company. Would be nive if riger made one, to go with their simgle-six.

I had the 6.5" blue heritage rough rider, it was pinpoint accurate with both. I traded it for a mossy 500a though.

One of my LGS had an entire case of CCI .22 longs.

What's the difference between 22 long and 22 LR?

My Uberti 22 cal. revolvers manuals say not to use high velocity ammo. This seems strange to me seeing as one of them has an additional cylinder for WMR rounds. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
