There is no substitute for a good bolt action rimfire, whether .22WMR, .17HMR, or .22lr. .22lr is really cheap to shoot, and if you are smart when buying, .22WMR and .17HMR are not bad. I just had 5 boxes of .22mag and .17HMR delivered to my house. .23 a round, delivered, 11.53 a box. Cheaper then buying local at 16.99+ a box.

MCA Sports makes an adapter that allows you to shoot 22lr in a 22mag chamber and a whole bunch of other 22 cartridges. Dont expect great accuracy.

I have an old Remington 514 that shoots shorts and LR. Made in 1951 and it's so old it doesn't even have a serial number.

You guys are wrong on there not being a rifle to shoot 22 lr or magnum-the rossi circuit jidge has a 9 shot model in 22 lr and 22 mag interchangeable

I think they were talking about something not requiring any part change for caliber swap.

You don't change anything for that rifle either. They both shoot out of the same cylinder on that rifle just like the judge pistols/rifles in 45lc and 410 use the same cylinder.

actually it comes with two different cylinders. this is from their website.

The Circuit Judge .22LR/.22 Magnum gives you the versatility and speed you need. It easily transforms from .22LR to .22 Magnum in seconds with its breakthrough removable cylinder. It's everything you could ever want for plinking, target practice or varmint hunting with these popular and affordable ammunition choices.

The one I handled had just one cylinder labeled lr/magnum. Hence why I said they don't change. Guess I was wrong.......or that one was a tester they sent the shop. Not sure.

i just know from past experiance that every revolver i shot or handled that shot 22lr/22Mag had two different cylinders, one for each type of shell.

Ya I know......I thought it was a little odd in it. It had a steel sleev guide that fit in the cylinder so the 22lr did wiggle around much. If its different cylinder now that is a big improvement....w lr the one I was messin w id rather chunk rocks at a target.
