In a typical British tendency to be overly thorough, the .22 LR cartridge in the early days was referred to as the .220 Long Rifle. Same rimfire. There WAS a Euro CF 22 known as the Velo Dog, and there were subcaliber training rounds in centerfire- but not .220 Long Rifle.

This is a LONG article on British "miniature caliber" ammo. Scroll WAY down for some good pcis and lsiting of ammo. Miniature-calibre ( small-bore) cartridges
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
