The 22wmr case is larger diameter than the 22lr. That makes spacing in the cylinder tighter - so ... use the 6 shot spaces - no trouble.
The LCR is a good shooter. It softens the 38 Special recoil of the very simialar S&W Airweight 38's. It's Hogue grip wraps all the way around the backstrap giving a cushioning that the S&W doesn't have. The S&W is a little unpleasant to range shoot. The LCR .. softer. I own both.
This "taming" of recoil of the 38 will be lost on the 22's though.
The LCR has a very smooth trigger - recognized by most who shoot the gun.
It's a good one. You should like it...
