there are as many brands of .22 as there are cars. and no you cant reload them. they are what we call rimfire. the firing pin hits the rim of the cartridge ingniting the powder. where as center fire (which are reloadable) the firing pin strikes the center of the cartridge where the primer is. all rimfire are non reloadable. .. so go buy a box of each brand and have fun

308,

I am not sure we are following your question! The only choice you have regarding the 22 Rimfire Ammunition is to buy the brand you want and you can find some variations in bullet weight! But that is it!
However they can be very accurate when matched to the weapon you are shooting. I competed years ago with the Federal H-Power 22 Cal. Rounds and shot a perfect Silhouette Score from 25 to 100 yards with my 10" Thompson Contender Pistol. Saying that it is good ammunition regarding accuracy.
There is other precision 22 Cal match ammunition available to choose from. BUT NO RELOADING on the 22 Cal.

nope. the average weight is 36 gr to 40gr. there are a few others but not many. the .22 is pretty much the simplest round not loadable or reloadable or however you are asking. just buy and shoot

With enuff time and money it is possible to do anything except ski thru a revolving door, but there in no reloading equipment sold that would allow you to custom load rimfire ammo. It uses a "heel seated" bullet- case grabs the edge of the bullet, unlike center fire ammo that the bullet slides into the case.

There is BB cap, CB Cap, short, long, long rifle. Low velocity, high velocity, ultra high velocity. Solids, hollow point, spire point, wadcutter, tracer, teargas, blank and shot loads. There is CHEEP bulk .22, and $$$$$ match ammo that is unbelievably accurate.

You also will not find reloading data for rimfire, nor is the proprietary powder used in rimfire ammo available on the market. If you plan to just experiment, and see what will blow the bolt out of your rifle, we will ask that you move over to the far side of the firing range- the firing point that has the fresh layer of sand to soak up body fluids.

If you could build a big enough revolving door you might be able to ski through it. The door would need to be massive and traveling at a high speed. With enough time and money I bet I could pull it off.

Yes- but if your timing is off just a little, they would have to pull YOU off- the door! ( Dang! I hate it when that happens! Somebody hand me the sqeegee.....)

Wasn't there a guy on the board a year or so ago that swore up and down that he knew how to load .22lr rimfire?

to answer your question theirs hundred of brands everything from solid lead to subsonic to copper plated hallow points. Me personally I use CCI Mini Mags and Remington Golden Bullets 36 grain plated hallow points aprox. 1280 FPS (feet per second), I usually buy it in bricks about 550 rounds costs about $25.
