Default .22 Mag in a .22 LR rifle?

My wife has a Derringer that shoots .22 MAG. Can I shoot these rounds in a .22 bolt action rifle?

The .22 Magnum is larger in diameter than the 22 LR, it is longer, and has about 3 times as much power. It will not fit, and you should not TRY to make it fit.

There are some revolvers that will shoot both- but folks overlook that THOSE have 2 different cylinders.

The answer is yes if your rifle is a .22 mag rifle. If it is a .22 LR it don't matter because the mag shells will not fit.

Thanks. Wasn't sure if the diameter of the MAG round was bigger. Thought it may just be a difference in length.
